Constantine is fourth highest earning Amavubi head coach

Newly appointed Amavubi Stars head coach Stephen Constantine is fourth on the list of the highest paid Rwanda national team coaches with a monthly salary of $11,000 (about Rwf 7.6m), Times Sport has established.

The Englishman is behind Ghanaian Sellas Tetteh, who was receiving $20, 000 (about Rwf13.8m) between 2010 and 2011 same as Serbian Branko Tucak (2008-2009) and Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, who was picking $16, 000 (approx. Rwf11m) per month from 2011- 2013.

Amavubi Stars most immediate former coach Eric Nshimiyimana was getting Rwf4 million from March 2013 until this month when he was replaced by Constantine.

On top of the monthly salary and other benefits, Constantine, 51 will be receiving $2000 (about Rwf1.4m) for every international match he wins including World Cup qualifiers, Africa Nations Cup qualifiers as well as Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup. He signed a two-year contract until May 2016.

The former coach of Malawi, Sudan, India and Cyprus will earn $1000 (About Rwf0.69m) for each warm-up game he wins in addition to a personal car to facilitate his movements.

Constantine, who began his work last week, will make his debut in the Amavubi dugout this weekend when Rwanda host Libya in the first round return leg of the 2015 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers.

The first leg ended in a goalless draw last weekend in the Tunisian capital Tunis.
