Former Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne has been sacked by South Africa Premier Soccer League side Marumo Gallants for insubordination.
In a statement, the club noted that Migne was found guilty for an incident of insubordination and using abusive language towards the club’s technical director.
The incident happened in public, and in the presence of players and the technical bench at the OR Tambo International airport on a trip to Durban last weekend to play against Golden Arrows.
“Following a disciplinary hearing last Thursday, the 7th October 2021, Marumo Gallants dismissed Sebastien Migne, head coach on Sunday. Migne pleaded guilty for insubordination and using abusive language towards technical director, Haris Choeu.
Marumo chair Abram Sello said that Migne’s dismissal comes at a time when the club is struggling to remain in the league.
“As a coach his [Migné’s] duty is to instil discipline in the team. The club followed correct disciplinary procedures and the decision to release him was made,” he said.
“It is unfortunate that Sebastien had to be dismissed, especially at a crucial time when we are pushing to remain in the league and advance in CAF. As management, we cannot go against what the disciplinary committee has decided but to wish Sebastien well in his future endeavours.”
The Frenchman has been in charge of the team since the start of the season. Under his charges Gallants have only managed to score one goal in the league and conceded six.
Under Migne, Gallants also only managed to score one goal in the league while they conceded six.
Currently, the team sit 15th on the log with two points from their opening five games
