The Rwanda Association Football Federation (FERWAFA) has confirmed that Amavubi head coach Antoine Hey is keen to quit his job.

The German tactician was in charge of Rwanda at the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals in Morocco where they were eliminated in the group stage.

Hey has since asked the FERWAFA to terminate his contract. The Federation released the following statement:
“FERWAFA has received a proposal from coach Antoine Hey seeking to terminate his contract.
“FERWAFA & MINISPOC will meet in the upcoming days to review his request.
“However, Coach Antoine Hey is duly urged to respect contract termination clauses binding both parties,” a statement read.

Amavubi finished third in Group C behind Nigeria and Libya, who both advanced to the knockout stages of the tournament.

Hey, who has coached Kenya, Lesotho as well as Gambia in Africa, was appointed Rwanda head coach last March.

The 47-year-old has also coached Tunisian side US Monastir and Sudanese giants Al Merrikh.
