Sebastien Migne Marumo Gallants


French coach Sebastien Migne maintains that his former employers will be obliged to pay him his dues as he continues with his battle three months after leaving the club.

Migne took charge of Marumo Gallants at the beginning of the season but was then sacked in October after the club’s disciplinary committee found him guilty of insubordination and directing abusive language towards technical director Harris Choeu.

He has since taken the legal route to resolve the matter.

"We are still having problems because they didn’t pay me up to now," Migne tells from his French base.

"We have a problem in that they created a big story with regards to the TD (technical director) to avoid paying me my release salary, so I asked a lawyer to take care of the matter. In the future they will be obliged to pay me, and this is what I have been told by my lawyer. In the beginning I wanted an amicable agreement but unfortunately after two months it became impossible which is why it is now this route.

"It is shame because they created some trouble for nothing. They can criticise all they want but the truth of the matter is known, and we would have only been able to compete better with time. They have tarnished my image, but I have some hopes to come back one day and show what I can do so we will see.

"They will be obliged to pay me in future even though I know that the chairman doesn’t want to pay. Otherwise, it was a good experience with the players but unfortunately with the club it wasn’t because that was not a good place. If I must come back, then it will not be in Limpopo province. For now, I’m back home in France with my family and looking for a new challenge," says Migne.   

Gallants have since appointed Dan Malesela after Raymond Mdaka briefly held fort after Migne’s departure.
