Sebastian Migne set to leave Equatorial Guinea coaching role

West African side Equatorial Guinea is set to part ways with head coach Sebastian Migne.

This comes barely a year after appointing him to take on the coaching role after leaving Kenya.

Migne’s deal was slated to end in June 2020 and according to African Soccer News, the country’s federation (FEGUIFUT) has decided against renewing it.

The 47-year-old tactician led the Harambee Stars to the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

He was handed the reign of Guinea national team in November 2019 to replace Spaniard Angel Gomez.

His first two games with the team came in the 2021 AFCON Qualifiers where they faced Tanzania and Tunisia.

The Frenchman registered losses in both games falling 2-1 to Tanzania in Dar Es Salaam before going down by a solitary goal against Tunisia at home.

He will leave the team bottom of Group J without any point with the federation now expected to appoint a new man ahead of their next qualifiers after the end of the coronavirus break.

He left Kenya in August 2019 on mutual consent and has recently, in an interview with Switch TV threatened to take the Football Kenya Federation to FIFA if his arrears are not paid on time.

Apart from Kenya and Equatorial Guinea, Migne has worked in Congo, Syria and Oman.
