No Olunga, no problem says Stars boss Migne
Harambee Stars' head coach Sebastian Migne says the team will deal with the absence of Michael Olunga when they take on Ghana on March 23.
Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne has said the team will be able to deal with the absence of striker Michael Olunga when they take on Ghana in the final African Cup of Nations qualification match on March 23.
Olunga has been ruled out after picking up a hamstring injury while in action for his Japanese second tier side Kashiwa Reysol over the weekend.
“It will be good opportunity for another player to show his quality. Of course it was difficult to have Masoud (Juma) in the beginning and maybe this is a good opportunity for him to show his quality before AFCON. Of course it will be difficult but we have the options,” the coach said.
He added; We beat Ghana without Wanyama (Victor), without Mandela (Brian). It will be difficult of course but we will try to find a solution,” the tactician stated.
Olunga has been key in the qualification process for the national team scoring a goal in two of the four qualifiers and forcing an own goal off Ghana in the first leg in Nairobi on September 1.
Meanwhile, Stars boss Migne has admitted it will be difficult to repeat the same result against Ghana, but believes his squad can show their quality against a star-studded Black Stars. The West Africans will have the Ayew brothers of Jordan and Andre for the tie having missed the first leg in Nairobi
