Former Harambee Stars Coach Henri Michel Dies at 70

FORMER Kenya and France coach Henri Michel has died aged 70. The Frenchman was named Harambee Stars in 2012, succeeding James Nandwa who had previously guided Stars to second place in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup. He would then quit his job after four months, citing frustration from the Football Kenya Federation then under Sam Nywamweya.

Michel managed Les Bleus for four years in 1984 and is also regarded as a Nantes legend after making over 500 appearances.
