Kenyan tactician Sebastien isn’t ready to coach a shabby boring team at the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations.
The Frenchman has insisted that his side will play the eye catching possessive game as they try to make it out of the group stages despite having only three strikers in his final squad of 23 players
“You will never see any of my teams trying to park the bus behind the box…never…not my team,” Migne told reporters after Wednesday’s training session in France.
“My philosophy is to make sure that we defend well at the back and attack as a team. We must try to stay strong at the back to avoid conceding and at the same time drive together to attack.
Despite being branded a defensive minded coach ahead of the tournament, Migne know the importance of being compact at the back but remain offensively acute.
“We must have the willingness to defend as a team and also move forward, and that is what we have been deploying.”
“I am very happy because my players are learning the style very well and if you watched us against Madagascar in the friendly, the system worked out very well,” he added.
Migne wants his team to have more than one source of goals, the reason he has lately been putting a lot of emphasis on improving their set pieces.
“We also need to improve in scoring goals, we need to work on our set pieces because we can score goals from that position and that will be an added advantage to my team.”
Hoping to rely on the experience of skipper Victor Wanyama, Migne has players he hopes can face the challenge and lift the team in their respectively departments.
“I am still waiting for answers from the player, Ayub Timbe needs to show me whether he is ready to start or he wants to start from the bench.”
“I am also waiting for answers from defender Joseph Akumu, he needs to show me now that he can step up and to fill the void left by injured Brian Mandela.
“I will start him (Akumu) against DR Congo (in the friendly) and he must be ready to show me what I have not seen before.”
Kenya are in Group B alongside Tanzania, Senegal and Algeria and open their campaign against the Maghreb on June 23rd.
