Should Harambee Stars head Coach Sebastien Migne resign? A number of football fans across the Country seem to have had enough of the French tactician following a run of poor results.
Despite helping Kenya qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations, Kenyan football fans have called on the Football Kenya Federation to show coach Migne the door with many arguing that he is clueless and does not mean well for the Kenyan football scene.
Calls for Migne to quit began intensifying when Kenya was bundled out of the Africa Cup of Nations at the Group Stages. The calls are now growing with each day that passes.
With Kenya’s recent poor CHAN campaign at the hands of Tanzania, Calls for Migne to quit will not be ending anytime soon.
Kenya could not make it past the first round of the 2020 CHAN qualifiers after falling at home to the Taifa Stars on penalties.
Kenya will have to wait longer to finally make it’s bow at the Continental tournament meant for players playing in their respective local leagues.
Coach Migne had assured Kenyan football fans that Harambee Stars will grace CHAN in 2020. All this is now but a wish and Kenyan fans have called on him to finally step down.
The coach has however maintained that he is going nowhere. Migne has insisted that the Kenya National team has made great strides under him and that the recent AFCON qualification is a clear indicator to that.
“Don’t forget where you (Kenya) were; you had never qualified for AFCON in 15 years. It is not even about CHAN; Kenya has never been to the U17 or U20 AFCON and that means Kenya doesn’t have the maturity to contest at the highest level,” Said Migne as quoted by Soka.
A seemingly bullish Migne said that sacking him will cost the Football Kenya Federation a lot and as such, it will not be the right thing to do.
“Honestly, I gave my best and I offered the fans an opportunity to dream with the AFCON qualification. About resigning, you will have to check with my president – I am under contract but it is already difficult to pay my salary and it will be difficult to pay the remainder of my full contract as well if I were to be sacked.
“I am a hard worker; I knew it will be hard when I accepted this job but my way is to give everything and to try and ensure something is going on when you sack me perhaps,” he added.
Well, it seems like Kenyan Football fans will have to make do with Migne even as the team prepares for the AFCON 2021 qualifiers.
