Harambee Stars coach Sebastian Migne has outlined tough conditions he would like met to keep the team’s dreams of qualifying for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) finals alive.
The Frenchman, who began his competitive campaign as Kenya coach brilliantly by downing four-time African champions Ghana 1-0 in a Group “F” qualifier at Kasarani stadium on Saturday, before edging out Malawi 1-0 in a friendly on Tuesday, said little things that matter can end Stars’ 14-year wait for continental action.
One, he wants any player who absconds national team duty be banned by the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) and two, any player summoned with an injury must report to camp for check-up with the medical staff.
Thirdly, he wants fans to embrace the team by painting the stadium red with replica jerseys for a frenzy atmosphere during home matches.
“We cannot achieve anything with my president and my players alone, we need fans in red jerseys in the stadium next month and also the final home game against Sierra Leone,” said the former Congo Brazzaville coach.
He added: “My focus now is on the Ethiopia games, we need to dream. We need to be organised in all departments and that’s why we’ve put in place some rules to be respected.”
