Less than a week before the Kenyan team departs for a three week residential camp in France ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament, head coach, Sebastien Migne is worried about the muscular injury picked up by winger Paul Were.
Were came on as a second half substitute in AFC Leopards’ loss to Tusker FC on Sunday but lasted barely a quarter of an hour before limping off.
“I am just afraid because of Paul’s injury yesterday; maybe it will be a huge problem for me because I want to have everyone available and ready to be well in terms of fitness for AFCON,” Migne said.
Were is, however, confident that he will be ready in the next two or three days as the injury wasn’t as serious.
“I felt my muscles become tight and just for precaution, I decided to pull out because the task ahead is so big and I couldn’t carry on playing with a threat of getting a worse injury. I am sure I will be okay. I have rested today and probably tomorrow I will be in training,” Were said.
The Harambee Stars are getting into the final week of non-residential training ahead of their planned departure to France later this weekend for their three-week Pre-AFCON camp.
