Antoine Hey (born 19 September 1970) is a German football coach and former professional player who played in the Bundesliga. He was appointed manager of the Myanmar national team and its under-23 team in May 2018.

Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Hey played mainly for Fortuna Düsseldorf and Schalke[2] in Germany,[3] as well as Tennis Borussia Berlin, Fortuna Köln, VfL Osnabrück, Anorthosis Famagusta and VfR Neumünster.

Management career[edit]

Hey began his management career in Germany with VfR Neumünster before moving to Africa to manage Lesotho.[3] Hey was also manager of Gambia from September 2006[3] until March 2007.[4] His spell with Gambia was marred by concerns over money.[5][6] He was appointed manager of Liberia in February 2008.[7] In February 2009, he was appointed coach of the Kenyan national team.[8][9] After disputes with the governing body over team selection,[10] Hey walked out on Kenya's national team shortly before the final World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.[11][12]

Later on, he worked as a Technical Director for the Libyan Football Federation from 2010 until 2014, and in the same role for the Bahrain Football Association from 2015 until 2016.[13] In November 2016, Hey returned to management with Sudanese club Al-Merrikh,[14] but he was sacked in January 2017 due to poor results, directly after the draw with ASAS Djibouti Télécom in the 2017 UAFA Club Championship.[15]

In February 2017 he was one of a number of managers on the shortlist for the vacant Rwanda national team manager role.[16] He was appointed manager of the Rwanda national team in March 2017.[17] He asked to quit in January 2018.[18]

In May 2018, he was appointed in a dual role as manager of Myanmar and its under-23 team on a one-and-half-year deal.[19]

Personal[edit]

His father, Jonny Hey, was also a professional footballer, playing for MSV Duisburg, Arminia Bielefeld, Grasshoppers Zürich and Fortuna Köln between 1972 and 1980.[20]
