LUSAKA — Zambia national team coach Hervé Renard has questioned the appointment of fellow Frenchman Henry Michel as Harambee Stars coach.
Renard did not mince his words when asked of his opinion over the appointment of the 64 year old as coach.
“Henry Michel was a bad choice for Kenya and I think you should have got a better coach who can inspire players and also relate to them.”
“I don’t have anything against Michel, but a coach should be judged by his track record and the effectiveness and consistence he has had in teams he has coached.”
“Kenya has so much potential, but I think the country went for the wrong coach who cannot lift the team to greater heights as his time is up and his tactics wrong. Kenya needed a coach that could inspire its rise to continental glory,” Renard told supersport.com in Lusaka.
Further prodded to suggest who would have been his preferred choice for a Kenyan coach Renard said: “I saw a lot of good coaches that applied, but I don’t want to make any suggestion.
“But Kenya needed a more robust coach that could bring a difference to the team since they have been struggling.”
