Former Harambee Stars tactician Sebastien Migne is the new head coach of the Equatorial Guinea men’s national football team.
The appointment, which the Frenchman announced through his social media handles, comes just three months after he left his position with the Kenyan national team on mutual consent. He has however stopped short of revealing the duration of the deal.
The 46 year old led Kenya to this year’s AFCON finals to help end a 15 year absence from the continental scene for Harambee Stars. However, the team’s failure to make it past the group stages of the tournament after they lost two and won one of their three matches led to his departure with both him and FKF coming to a mutual understanding to end his one year reign.
His appointment comes a week before the National Thunder take on Tanzania in their opener for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers on Friday 15 November in Dar Es Salaam. Coincidentally it is Tanzania who Kenya won against to claim their only win at the AFCON.
He replaces Spaniard Dani Guindos.
