French coach Sebastien Migne has been appointed as the new manager of Congo 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 DR Congo, 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 Egypt and Uganda, respectively.
