Marumo Gallants have officially confirmed the release of head coach Sebastien Migne with immediate effect.
Migne was released after he was found guilty for an incident of insubordination and using abusive language towards technical director Harris Choeu.
The DStv Premiership outfit will now head into their Caf Confederation Cup clash with AS Vita without a head coach in the dugout on Friday.
Gallants released the following statement on parting ways with Migne:
“Following a disciplinary hearing last Thursday, the 7th October 2021, Marumo Gallants FC dismissed Sebastien Minge, head coach on Sunday. Minge pleaded guilty for insubordination and using abusive language towards Technical Director Harris Choeu. 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.
“Minge started working for The Gallants on 1 July 2021. As a coach his duty is to instil discipline to the team. 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,” said chairman Abram Sello.
Marumo Gallants FC will be facing AS Vita from the DRC on Friday, 15 October in Polokwane in a Caf second round. Despite the current developments, the Friday match will go ahead, and the club are working hard to ensure that all Caf requirements are met, including having a qualified coach.
The club maintain there is no crisis and training continues as scheduled, with the technical team and players looking forward to their next games.
