Equatorial Guinea Football Federation has appointed Sebastien Migne, the former coach of Kenya’s national football team, as the new manager of the Nzalang Nacional ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The federation says it hopes the Frenchman’s experience will take the national team to a new level.
The 46-year-old has signed an open contract in which any party is free to terminate the deal at any time after six months.
Migne said he was taking over a “good team”:
I do not promise results but hard work. I can’t say that I already know all the players of the national team…I have been fortunate to follow the friendly that Nzalang had with Togo in France and I can say that I have a good team… My plan is to meet with all the coaches in the country to convey my work philosophy. It is the way we can do a team work.”
His first games as coach will be Nations Cup qualifiers away to Tanzania on 15 November and at home to Tunisia four days later.
