Former Harambee Stars coach Sebastian Migne says he is surprised after his successor Francis Kimanzi included Jesse Were in his squad.
Migne said that Kimanzi had no objection when he picked up Masoud Juma over Jesse Were two months ago.
Were was axed from the national team that travelled to Egypt two months ago during the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) by the coach who has since been sacked.
"I respect Kimanzi a lot and I think he is the best suited local coach for the national team job, but he didn't have any objection when I picked Masoud Juma instead of were (Jesse) two months ago, so I am shocked what changed now," Migne said as quoted by goal, Saturday.
Were who is Zambian all-time top scorer playing for Zesco United picked up a hamstring injury during the last weekend training.
He will miss the Sunday's friendly clash with Uganda cranes at the Moi International sports centre, Kasarani.
The 30-year-old striker has 26 international caps with no goal.
During Migne's reign, Were, a former Mathare United and Tusker FC striker was largely overlooked.
