French Coach Henri Michel Passes On

Henri Michel

Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Henri Michel has reportedly passed away at the age of 70 following a lengthy bout of illness.

After retirement, Michel started his managerial career with the French national U-21 team, and then he became the French senior team manager in 1984, leading them to win the bronze medal in the 1986 World Cup.

Michel, who was briefly at Chloorkop from November 2008 to March 2009, represented France and Nantes during his playing days, earning 58 global caps and competing at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. Michel had a long journey with football as both a player and manager.

Henri Michel managed the Moroccan national team again from the beginning of 2007 to February 2008.

Former France captain and coach Henri Michel is dead, according to reports in France. He was a three-time victor of the French league title.

"What awful news", Hidalgo said after being informed of Michel's death by AFP.


"I knew he'd had health problems but I hadn't realised how serious they were".

"He was a great friend, a true professional, a great guy in every respect". Under him, France made the semi-finals of the World Cup in Mexico two years later where they lost 2-0 to West Germany before beating Belgium 4-2 to seal third place.

Michel's time at the helm came to an unhappy end when his team failed to qualify for Euro 1988 and then drew 1-1 with Cyprus in a 1990 World Cup qualifier.

Michel managed several national teams such as France, Cameroon, Tunisia, Cote d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Kenya and Morocco for two seperate terms.

His last assignment was with Kenya in 2012.
