Record Rwanda Premier League champions Armée Patriotique Rwandaise (APR) Football Club named Serbian national Zlatko Krmpotić, 61, as the new club coach for a year long tenure.

Zlatko was officially unveiled at the club’s Kimihurura offices on Friday.

Zlatko will be assisted by Jimmy Mulisa (Assistant coach), Radanavic Miodrag (Fitness coach), Ibrahim Mugisha (goalkeeping coach), and Didier Bizimana (Physio).

He replaces a fellow Serbian national, Ljubomir “Ljupko” Petrović , 70, who resigned late last year following concerns of his life.

He was also in Zambia with Zesco United (2017) as well as Botswana outfit, Jwaneng (2018).

Lately, Zlatko was at New Royal Eagles in South Africa where he had joined in 2018 on a two-year agreement.

Zlatko played for Red Star Belgrade (1977-1986) and Genclerbirligi (1986-1988).
