Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne is still stranded in Nairobi and may not travel to India in time for the Intercontinental Cup.

Migne, who signed a three year deal with FKF at the beginning of the month, did not travel with the rest of the team on Wednesday following ‘delay' in processing his travelling Visa.

Stars are set to take part in the Four-Nation tournament in Mumbai where they will face hosts India, New Zealand and Chinese Taipei.

FKF Media officer Barry Otieno told Goal that Migne is yet to receive his travelling documents, adding that the coach is expected to travel later on Thursday if he is cleared.

"We expect the coach to travel when he receives travelling documents. He might travel even today (Thursday)."

The absence of the coach could be another blow to the Kenyan team after Gor Mahia recalled goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch, Humphrey Mieno, Joash Onyango, Philemon Otieno, Francis Kahata and captain Haron Shakava from the traveling squad.

Stars also received another setback after AFC Leopards retained Whyvonne Isuza, Marvin Omondi and Jeffery Owiti.

Mathare United coach Francis Kimanzi is currently handling the team that left for India.
