Cyrille Kalima, KBC Coach ,said on Tuesday, “It is high time someone stopped their (Espoir) reign, we want to win this title and we are ready to do everything possible to make it happen.”
“Espoir are a solid team and will be the favourites in the final but we are determined to be the first team to beat them in the league in almost two seasons,”He added.
Espoir coach Jean Bahufite, whose team beat archrivals APR 2-0 in the best of three Playoffs semi-finals at the weekend said,” The season is not over yet and our target is to try and go another season unbeaten.”
The Nyamirambo-based side won both the regular season league title and the Playoffs trophy last season and they have already retained the league and are now seeking to hold onto the Playoffs crown as a well.
