Kenya FA, Football Kenya Federation has parted ways with national team head coach Sebastien Migne after just 15 months in charge of Harambee Stars.

This comes a week after Kenya was knocked out of African Championship (CHAN) qualifiers at home by Tanzania through post match penalties.

“Football Kenya Federation and Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne have agreed to terminate the coach’s contract on mutual consent,” read part of the statement.

“Consequently, FKF and Migne agreed on a settlement for the coach over a period of time.”

“The federation wishes to thank coach Migne for the exemplary work and high standard of professionalism during his tenure which culminated in the country’s qualification to the 2019 AFCON tournament for the first time in 15 years.”

“The reorganization and appointment process for a new technical bench is already underway and a team to steer Harambee Stars forward will be announced shortly.”

“We wish the coach all the best in his future endeavors, this even as we turn our focus on the upcoming 2021 AFCON qualifiers, with a view to try and qualify for the final tournament,” concluded the statement.

Migne had insisted after the match that FKF couldn’t fire him because they were even struggling to pay his salary.

Migne will be remembered for ending Kenya’s 15-year absence at the 2019 Total African Cup of Nations when Stars made it to the finals in Egypt winning one game and losing the other two.
