Le Roy resigns as Togo head coach


The Togolese Football Federation (FTF) has confirmed that Claude Le Roy has stepped down from his duties as the national team head coach.

The French veteran mentor tendered his resignation on Monday after the Hawks failed to qualify for the Total Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon), Cameroon 2021.

Le Roy has been the coach of the Togo national football team for the past five years.

In those five years, he managed to lead the side to the 2017 Total Afcon in Gabon.

Since then, Togo failed to reach the next two Total Afcon editions.

The 73-year-old tactician was in charge of 35 matches in all competitions as the Togo head coach which saw him winning nine games, drew 12 and lost on 14 occasions.

The FTF accepted his decision to leave the Hawks on mutual consent.

“After missing out on qualification to the Total AFCON, Cameroon 2021, Togo National Coach Claude Le Roy decided to resign from his post following a meeting with Minister of Sports and Leisure Dr Bessi Lidi-Kama,” said the statement.

Togo is now on the mission to find a new coach before the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers commence in June 2021.
