Harambee Stars search for a new coach continues after the team’s head coach Sebastien Migne and the Football Kenya Federation agreed to part ways on mutual consent.
On leaving, Migne in a long Facebook post thanked the Kenyan fans and the federation for their trust in him and said he was leaving a happy man after laying a foundation for the national team they would use in the future.
The Statement in Full
Today, when I am about to take a different path in my career, I would like to say thank you and goodbye to the fans, players, and staff of Harambee Stars.
Indeed, following a reflection initiated after CHAN with my Federation, we concluded that it was better to terminate our collaboration.
The initial objective of qualifying the team to the AFCON 2019 having been achieved, it is the moment to set me a new professional challenge and for FKF to operate on a new motivational lever to confirm its progression.
Kenya will remain a great chapter of my life and such a wonderful country. We shared together beautiful emotions. This story began in the anonymity during the match in Machakos against Swaziland and ended by participating in the biggest event in Africa, namely AFCON 2019 in Egypt ... 15 years later.
During our qualifying campaign, we gave a lot of hope to the fans ... even though the reality of elimination against the two future finalists reminded us how high the level is demanding and the way to go.
I would like to thank all the people who gave me their trust and the opportunity to train this team. Also, the players for their involvement and professionalism; the main interest of this job for me remains the relationship that was established with them. And they were great.
I am proud of the work accomplished and happy to have modestly participated in laying the future foundation of this team.
I hope you will get great success.
