Kenyan international goalkeeper Farouk Shikalo has revealed former Harambee Stars coach Sebastien Migne did not support his move to Yanga SC.

The custodian joined the Tanzania outfit in July 2019, signing a two-year contract in the process. 

According to the 26-year-old, the Frenchman wanted the towering shot stopper to continue playing in the Kenyan Premier League to help Kenya qualify for the 2020 Chan.

“Yanga were determined to get me and I remember Kamugisha [Frank] insisted we finalize the deal while in Egypt during the 2019 Afcon,” Shikhalo told Mwanaspoti.

“It was a tough decision for me to make; Migne was not for the idea that I join Yanga because Kenya was to play Tanzania in the Chan qualifier, he wanted me to stay at Bandari. I also wanted to win my second goalkeeper of the year award in a row. It was not easy for me at all.”

The custodian has also revealed that apart from the 27-time Tanzania Mainland League champions, Zesco United of Zambia were also interested his services, same as a club in Botswana. 

“Of course Bandari were not ready to let me go, but at long last, I chose to come here [at Yanga],” he added.

Yanga are currently third on the league table with 51 points.
