Sébastien Migné

Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has parted ways with Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne by mutual agreement.

This comes just a week after Kenya was knocked out of the 2020 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers by Tanzania Taifa Stars 4-1 on post-match penalties after both legs ended in a barren stalemate.

The statement from the football federation today read;

“Football Kenya Federation and Harambee Stars Head Coach Sébastien Migné have agreed to terminate the coach’s contract on mutual consent.

“Consequently, FKF and Migné have agreed on a settlement for the coach, over a period of time.

“The Federation wishes to thank Coach Migné for his exemplary work and high standard of professionalism during his tenure, which culminated in the country qualifying for the 2019 AFCON tournament for the first time in 15 years.

“The reorganization and appointment process for a new technical bench is already underway and the team to steer the Harambee Stars forward will be announced shortly.

‘We wish the coach all the best in his future endeavors, this even as we turn our focus on the upcoming 2021 AFCON qualifiers, with a view to try and qualify for the final tournament.”

Migne becomes the third coach after Stanley Okumbi and Paul Put to be sacked since Nick Mwendwa took office in February 2016.

The French football coach was appointed in May 2018 taking over from Belgian Paul Put. He guided Kenya to the Africa Cup of Nations in June for the first time in 15 years.
