Sébastien Migné: Kenya appoint new coach ahead of Ghana clash

Kenya are getting prepared to host Ghana in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers with the appointment of Sébastien Migné as new head coach.

The Frenchman takes over from Belgian Paul Put who resigned in February after a three-month stint with the Harambee Stars.

Sébastien Migné, who led Congo to frustrate the Black Stars’ 2018 World Cup qualification bid in Kumasi last year, has inked a three-year contract with a task to take Kenya to Afcon 2019 or Afcon 2021.

Aside the senior national team, the tactician will also be in charge of the Under-23 and Under-20 teams.

Ahead of their September duel against Ghana in Machakos, coach Sébastien Migné has placed a request for at least one training camp with a group of home-based players as well as three friendly matches.

International players like of Tottenham Hotspur’s Victor Wanyama, Girona’s forward Michael Olunga and other will join the final squad when the game approaches.

Ghana is in Group F of the Afcon 2019 qualifiers alongside East African duo Kenya and Ethiopia and a fellow West African Sierra Leone.

The Black Stars thrashed Ethiopia 5-0 in Kumasi in the group opener last year.
