Sierra Leone national team, Leone Stars Group F opponent, Kenya, has appointed French tactician, Sebastien Migne as their new coach for the Harambee Stars- replacing the Belgian Paul Put, who resigned in February.
The 44-year old signed a-four-years contract with the East African side, and is tasked with the responsibility to qualify the Stars to the finals of the 2019 Africa Nations Cup in Cameroon 2019.
Already, the Harambee Stars have suffered 2-1 defeat to Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in their opening match of the group qualifiers and Migne, who is the third French tactician in the last decade – after Bernard Lama and Henri Michel – to take charge of the Kenyan national side is keen to achieve his goal.
“This is a new challenge for me coming to new country. I look forward to the challenge and will be ready to start working on Sunday,” Migne said. “I will go to the stadium to watch the Kenyan Premier League. Let us not focus on Ghana alone, other teams in the group are stronger. But generally, I am ready for the job,” he said.
Migne has been given license to select his own assistants, and has brought along a goalkeeper coach and a medical assistant.
