The tactician is one of those who have been associated with the coaching job of the Central African country
Former Kenyan head coach Sebastien Migne has said he is convinced that he can lead the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the 2022 World Cup.
The Frenchman has been linked to the Central African nation’s coaching job and has cited his experience as one of the reasons he’s helping the nation reserve a spot in the final that will be held in Qatar.
“I want to assure you that I am confident that I will support Congo DR in qualifying for the World Cup in a campaign that starts in June,” said Migne, according to Congo Profond.
“I had the experience of working from 2011 to 2013 as a trainer and also as an assistant for DR Congo in Africa. I know the places and have achieved results elsewhere, even with weaker teams, and without any disrespect.
“I want to work with the players who are disciplined from the diaspora and with some who are the best on the ground. I will find the right balance so that the Congolese can live and love their team. “
The Frenchman was responsible for the Harambee Stars when they qualified for the African Nations Cup final in 2019. Kenya had missed the continental competition since performing in Tunisia in 2004 before Migne came along and fulfilled his dream.
Kenya only managed one win against Tanzania when they were defeated in the group stage by eventual finalists Algeria and Senegal. The win against the Taifa Stars is what the coach called one of his team’s positive results.
The Frenchman quit the Kenyan job when he reached an agreement with the Football Kenya Federation to end his association in 2019. He hadn’t helped Kenya qualify for the 2021 African Nations Championship when they were eliminated by Tanzania in Nairobi during the qualifying process.
Should he be appointed head of the DR Congo, he will face Benin, Madagascar and Tanzania in World Cup qualification.
World Cup qualification will begin in mid-2021 when some African nations will compete against each other in the first round.
