Do you think Coach Kimanzi can take Harambee stars to the next level if given a chance?
Harambee Stars were dealt a huge blow on Monday after the resignation of their head coach Sebastian Migne. The former Congo coach’s departure was confirmed by the Football Kenya Federation, who also promised his replacement in the next 24 hours.

Migne exited after producing a dismal performance in the 32nd edition of the African Cup of Nation and worse of all, failed to qualify for the CHAN 2020 after losing to Tanzania on penalty shootouts at Moi Sports Centre, Kasarani.
Kenyans were wounded after the failure and were constantly calling for the resignation of the Frenchman, who acceded to their demand.
Fans are currently on the watch and are eagerly waiting to receive their new coach. But their online conversation has stalled on whether to bring in a foreign coach or hire a local one.
Migne was assisted by a Kenyan coach Francis Kimanzi and fans cannot hold on the idea that the Kenya U-23 coach should be trusted with the job.
Jevick Kevin OchiengSame old story a point someone who has played and understand how national team operate.
Kidake Erick Ataleta uMathare mwingi hapo,wacha atulie hapo ako…
Gerald Omondi Never,he is too complicated
Ougo Erick This BURUKENGE also mismanaged our under 23 OLYMPIC team .He was also working with MIGNE as an assistant.
He is incompetent.
Moses Mathenge Hapa najua harambee itakuwa tu maplayers wa mathare na sharks
Jamal Ochola No he can he didn’t help mathare to win kpl
Martin Spartan Marine Huyu kitu atafanya ni kututeremsha tu fifa ranking turudi huko 136
Mugambi Elias joking NO
Nelson Arap Midiwo alishindwa na mathare…+afcon alikuwa flower girl..okumbi can do better
Rvp Jobisso Will be the greatest scam in planet Earth..
David Mboga Hakuna. Alipeleka Tusker wapi? This is not his first time at Harambee stars, what new idea is he bringing in? He should be close to Gost now, remember Gost is 100 times better than him.
Norbert Aduda Heavily biased
Arlan Denis Aaaaaaahhhhh bureeeee kabsa mathare ndoitakua harambe.amekua hapo aliduuu tafteni coach.mathare haiperform under kimanzi ni harambeee?
Frankline Ochieng I don’t think so considering the fact dat he has won nothing in the recent yrs as a club coach
Okinyi William Big NOOOOOO
Maustine Tresor Moshue What are his achievments as a coach in KPL and Harambee Stars? Does he have any? Why him?
Benard Wasike This one hapana. He has failed on several occasions and we’re not here to gamble with our national team. Let FKF recall Adel Amrouche and William Muluya to work together
Migoye Migoye He was once there and messed up..he is currently one of those pple in technical bench who influenced team selection picking underserved and inexperienced players
Kimanzi was appointed head coach of Harambee Stars on 11 December 2008 after serving in the position as a caretaker since May 2008. He was then sacked after the 2008 CECAFA Cup in January 2009 due to disputes between him and Kenyan football administrators.
After a 1-year stint coaching club side Sofapaka, he was reappointed as head coach of the Kenyan national team in November 2011. In June 2012 he was sacked again as manager of Kenya alongside his entire coaching staff after Kenya failed to qualify for the 2013 African Nations Cup.
On 25 July, he resigned as Mathare United coach, stating that he wanted to shift focus on his current duty as the coach of the Kenya U-23 and the assistant coach of the senior team.
