Harambee Stars Coach Sebastien Migne Vows to Quit After 10 days

Harambee Stars Coach Sebastien Migne has issued a 10-day ultimatum to the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) over unpaid salary.

Migne lamented that he had only been paid for two months since his appointment in May 2018.

It is reported that the French national pockets Ksh1.5 million a month, bringing the total sum owed to him at Ksh4.5 million for July, August, and September.

The national team has only three permanent staff, the coach, his assistant Nicholas Bourriquet and video analyst Michael Igendia

His first competitive assignment was against Ghana’s Black Stars, which ended in a 1-0 home win for Harambee Stars.

Migne’s exit could disrupt the team’s preparation for the upcoming 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier match against Ethiopia.

Kenya will play Ethiopia away on October 10 at the 60,000-seater Bahir Dar Stadium, followed by a return leg at the Kasarani Stadium.

Speaking to journalists in Nairobi, FKF President Nick Mwendwa revealed that the team’s coach had submitted his notice in writing.

He faulted the Ministry of Sports for the financial crunch facing the federation.

There is a challenge of funding as on the beginning of the year the federation gave the government a budget of KSh889 million yet we have not received anything more than KSh100 million,” Mwendwa added.
