The newly-unveiled Harambee Stars Coach Henri
Michel has his hands full even before he gets to work.
As confirmed by Football Kenya Federation Chairman Sam Nyamweya, in his welcome speech, Michel will offer guidance in all the country’s national teams as well as contribute to the local league.
-Hiring a quality coach in itself is not a cure for poor results, said Nyamweya.
-We are fully aware that there is a lot that still needs to be undertaken. That is why Michel’s mandate would include overseeing the building of Under-23, Under-20 and Under-17 national teams and also advise the Kenyan Premier League.
-We are convinced that Henri Michel is equal to these tough assignments. He clearly has his work cut out. And given this enormous responsibility, the new tactician will need the co-operation and support of all stakeholders to succeed.
Michel, who comes in to take a position left vacant by Francis Kimanzi, will have two French assistants and one local, James Nandwa.
