Sebastien Migne parts ways with Equatorial Guinea

Sebastien Migne parts ways with Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea have parted ways with their head coach Sebastien Migne after only seven months in charge of the team.

The Frenchman was appointed coach of National Thunder in November 2019 after he was sacked as Harambee Stars coach. 

The 47-year-old tactician has confirmed to goal that he is no longer part of the West Africa side.

“It is true I will not be part of [Equatorial Guinea] anymore,” Migne told Goal on Friday.

“We parted by mutual consent; with the current coronavirus pandemic, it seemed complicated to stay focused on my job. Also, remember my family is in Kenya and my main priority is to recover them.”

“I do not know [if I will stay in Kenya and for how long]; I need to work but again it depends with opportunities that come my way,” Migne added.

“Once the situation has normalized, with my family settled then for sure I can start thinking about working again.”

Migne lost games in charge during Equatorial Guinea’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Tanzania and Tunisia, losing 2-1 and 1-0, respectively.

Migne led the Harambee stars qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt but the team could not get past the group stages. He was later sacked in August 2019.
