- Former Harambee Stars boss Sebastian Migne intends to head to world football governing body, FIFA in the worst-case scenario to claim the unpaid dues the Football Kenya Federation (FKF) owes him.
The French tactician wants his payments settled by August. He also claims the bonuses he was to receive when he lead Harambee Stars to victory over Tanzania last during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations season. The team players were to receive 250,000 each which is still due.
“No, they have (FKF) have told me it is a process (to receive payments) so soon maybe I will go to Fifa (to lodge a case). I have left some time for FKF to regularize the payments or else I will go to Fifa this summer,” Migne explained.
“We have received nothing. The players and my staff. No money and we wait. I read in the papers about the challenges and we will see.” He added
Migne parted ways with FKF last August due to poor performances, the latest one being the average performances at the Nations Cup, and loss to Tanzania in the qualification matches of the 2020 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).
The parting shot is believed is be expensive on FKF’s end. The tactician is said to have been earning close to Sh2 million a month and during his departure, FKF comes up with a compensation plan to pay him for the three-year standing contract deal.
“We have an agreement to pay Migne his monthly salary up until the time he gets another job. Now that he has got an opportunity in Equatorial Guinea, we will stop paying him,” said Mwendwa.
The tactician now joins a list as the third coach to get frustrated in a pay dispute with the FKF under Mwendwa’s tenure. Belgian Adel Amrouche is yet to receive his Sh109 million compensation. Bobby Williamson was awarded Sh55 million by the Employment and Labor Courts in Nairobi after it ruled he was procedurally dismissed from his position in 2016.
