Harambee Stars Coach Blasts Wanyama for unprofessionalism

Kenya head coach Sebastien Migne has accused Tottenham’s Victor Wanyama of unprofessionalism after the midfielder failed to report for international duty.

The Kenya captain was called up for the Afcon qualifier against Ghana despite struggling with a knee injury.

Despite Migne acknowledging that Wanyama was not fit to face the Black Stars, he has questioned the players’ decision not to show up for assessment.

“Wanyama should have traveled to Kenya so that our medical staff can assess his injury,” Migne said.”We should be a bit professional in such situations.”Even Hugo Lloris is injured but he reported to the French camp. We should change such attitudes going forward,” Migne said

Unfit: Victor Wanyama

Tottenham, however, are understood to believe that the midfielder was withdrawn through official channels after he was deemed not fit enough to travel.

The 27-year-old is yet to feature for Tottenham this season, and missed last parts of the last campaign with hamstring and cartilage injuries. Wanyama was an unused substitute in the recent defeat to Watford at Vicarage Road.

Stars will tackle the West African giants at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on Saturday from 4pm, and Migne has picked on his best arsenal for the duel.

In the 24-man squad are influential forward Michael Olunga and Ovella Ochieng, as well as midfielders Eric Johanna and Johanna Omollo.

Bandari duo of Abdalla Hassan and Faruk Shikalo have also made the cut alongside Zambia based Mohamed Musa, David Owino ‘Calabar’ and Jesse Jackson Were.
