Migne linked with vacant Yanga coaching role

Former Harambee Stars coach Sebastian Migne has reportedly joined Tanzanian giants Simba, local media reports suggest.

Mwanaspoti reports the Dar-based club has settled on the Frenchman instead of his compatriot Hubert Velud who has been considered favourite for the role.

Migne could arrive in Tanzania with a rich resume.

Aside from helping Kenya qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations following wins over Ghana and Egypt, the 48-year old has also coached both the Republic of Congo and Equatorial Guinea national teams.

He made his name as a coach after playing as assistant to renowned trainer Claude Le Roy for almost a decade.

Migne is in line to replace Burundian Cedric Caze who was sacked at Yanga two weeks ago following a spate of poor results.

Timu ya Wananchi are also looking to secure continental football ahead of the coming season.
