Michel quits Harambee Stars



Barely four months into the job, Frenchman Henri Michel has quit his role as the national team coach.

Michel who took over the reins after Francis Kimanzi was shown the door, has opted to leave Kenya, a day after Harambee Stars assistant Coach James Nandwa saw Kenya go down 1-0 against Burundi in the CHAN qualifiers.

A letter sent to supersport.com that originated from the French Embassy in Nairobi explained the development.

"To cut short to all the interpretations based on misinformation recently published in the Kenyan press, I would like to clarify that I could not find an amicable agreement within the deadlines regarding my compliance with several provisions of the contract."

"Therefore, I decided to stop working with the Kenyan football federation by registered letter dated 10-12-2012. From today, I will not disclose more on this matter, if not by available legal means."

"That notwithstanding, I wish Kenyan football the greatest success."

Michel has been on the touchline on two occasions, against South Africa at home and Tanzania away with Kenya losing both matches.
