French coach Sebastien Migne has been appointed as the new manager of national team, replacing his compatriot Pierre Lechantre.

The Red Devils have remained without a coach since Nov. 2016 when Lechantre was sacked after Congo’s 1-0 defeat against Uganda in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The 44-year-old, who served as Claude Le Roy’s assistant at Congo and Togo, penned a two-year deal with the Red Devils. He’ll be aiming to guide Congo, who have been drawn alongside , Zimbabwe, and Liberia, to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

It’s worth mentioning that Claude Le Roy and Migne have guided Congo to the quarter-finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations before losing 4-2 to DR Congo.

The Red Devils’ mission to qualify to the 2018 World Cup has become complicated, as they sit at the bottom of Group E after losing 2-1 and 1-0 to and Uganda, respectively.
