Mr. Kaze comes in to fill the shoes of the short lived tenure of the Serbian Zlatko Krmpotić who spent only a month and seven days with the team before he was discredited.
To his credit, he did see Yanga win five matches and draw only once in the six matches that the Young Africans played under him.
The Serbian coach had come in to replace the fired Belgian Luc Eymael, whom the team’s management felt had failed to deliver on his contract terms.
Will Cedric Kaze lift Yanga back to its former glory?
Well that remains to be seen, however at the moment, Kaze joins the Yanga bench with a clean CV and several awards under his belt. In his highlights, Kaze became the best coach in East and Central Africa in 2012.
Having worked at the prestigious FC Barcelona Academy as well as FC Edmonton in Canada, Kaze is well placed to lead Yanga to the promised land.
He also has a history in Germany where he studied at Hennef Sports School and he also did a lot of his tactical training in German as well. He is a holder of CAF “A” license
Kaze’s first Match
The new coach will debut his skills next Thursday on the 22nd been exactly seven days from the day of his arrival October 15th.
In that game, Young Africans will take on Polisi Tanzania at the Benjamin Mpaka National Stadium in Dar es salaam.
It is hoped that the new coach will not only maintain Yanga’s current status but elevate it further. At the moment, Yanga is ranked third with 13 points collected so far.
