NAIROBI, Kenya- Frenchman and former player, Sebastien Migne has been named as the new Harambee Stars head coach on Thursday in Nairobi.
Football Kenya Federation President, Nick Mwendwa unveiled the tactician this morning with Migne signing a three year deal to manage the men’s national team, succeeding Belgian Paul Put who resigned from the post to manage Guinea.
Migne, 45, is a previous coach of the Democratic Republic of the Congo national under-20 football team and the first manager to qualify the team for the continental championships.
He was then appointed coach of the Congo national team in March 2017 last year, leaving the post exactly a year later.
“I am happy to be appointed as coach of the Kenyan team. I am looking forward to sharing my experience for the growth of the Kenyan game,” the coach said.
The coach will oversee three international friendly matches before Kenya faces Ghana in an Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier in September according to FKF.
Migné is the protege of respected French man and Nations Cup winner, Claude Le Roy.
