Kenya in process of writing a new page in football, says coach Sebastien Migne

The last time Harambee Stars reached the Afcon finals was way back in 2004 in Tunis, Tunisia under coach Jacob ‘Ghost’ Mulee

Kenyan is on the verge of writing a new chapter in continental football, say Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne.

Migne, while speaking in Ethiopia ahead of the Afcon qualifier with the hosts on Wednesday, said that Kenya is on the right track and can secure a place in the 2019 Afcon tournament in Cameroon, even though he admitted that the journey will not be a smooth sailing.

“I think we are on the way to writing a new page in Kenyan Football, but it’s just the beginning."

Migne, however, said that Stars' preparation has not been so good for his players, who are expected to train together just two times before they take on Ethiopia.

“It is difficult because I only had my full squad from today (Monday) that means we have only two days to prepare for this game, but that the life of football, sometimes. I think we will be ready to compete against Ethiopia here."

Migne, who guided Stars to a victory against Ghana in his first competitive game, termed the result at Kasarani as ‘fantastic’ even though the Frenchman warned that repeating that kind of performance will not be a walk in the park.

“To confirm and repeat the same kind of result against Ghana here is not easy. We know the challenge we have in Ethiopia. We will try and compete well,” added Migne, who has won his last two games; against Ghana and Malawi by a solitary goal.

Kenya are jointly top with Ghana, both on three points while Ethiopia are bottom with no point after Sierra Leone were banned by Fifa over political interference.
