Gallants Sack Migne

Marumo Gallants have dismissed Sebastian Migne as head coach, following a disciplinary hearing.

The club announced the coach’s departure today.

The French coach had joined the club, formerly known as Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, in July. Gallants are 15th in the DStv Premiership and are yet to win in five games.

“Following a disciplinary hearing last Thursday, the 7th October 2021, Marumo Gallants FC dismissed Sebastien Migne, head coach on Sunday. Migne pleaded guilty for insubordination and using abusive language towards Technical Director, Harris Choeu,” the statement read.

“The incident happened in public, and in the presence of players and the technical team at OR Tambo International airport on a trip to Durban last weekend to play against Golden Arrows.”

“Migne started working for The Gallants on 1 July 2021.

““As a coach his duty is to instil discipline to the team,” Chairman Abram Sello said in the statement.

“The club followed correct disciplinary procedure and the decision to release him was made.

“It is unfortunate that Sebastien had to be dismissed especially at a crucial time when we are pushing to remain in the league and advance in CAF.

“As management we cannot go against what the DC has decided but to wish Sebastien well in his future endeavours.”

Gallants are in action next week as they welcome AS Vita from the DRC in the CAF Confederation Cup this coming Friday, the 15th of October, in Polokwane.
