Football Kenya Federation (FKF) has been appointed Sebastien Migne as new national team head coach. The 45-year-old has signed a three year deal to take over from Paul Put, who lasted just four months. He will start work on Monday and his contract will finish at the end of May 2020.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=””]”I am so happy to be here it is a new challenge for me, a new country and I am ready to start. From next Sunday we will go to the pitch and watch some Kenyan Premier League games. We have a big challenge ahead but I am ready for the job,”[/perfectpullquote]
the tactician said during his unveiling ceremony at Football House in Nairobi.
Migne has previous experience of coaching in Africa with his last job being Congo Brazzaville national team coach.
He also worked as an assistant to Claude Le Roy with the Togo national team at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Federation of Kenya Football have mandated him to guide the team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Ealier reports had linked former Tunisia head coach Ruud Krol as the possible candidate to fill the postion but the deal failed to go through in the last hour.
Kenya is in Group F of the qualifiers alongside Ghana, Ethiopia and Sierra Leone.
