Claude Le Roy appointed new Togo manager

Posted on April 6, 2016


Claude Le Roy

appointed as ’s new manager in order to help the team qualify for the 2017 AFCON tournament.

Togo secured the signature of the 68-year-old experienced Frenchmen who has previously managed a number of African national teams including: Cameron, Senegal, DR Congo, Ghana, and Congo.

Le Roy penned a three-year contract with Togo, and he selected Sebastian Minier to be his assistant.

It’s well worth mentioning that Togo are third in their AFCON qualifying group with seven points from four matches, two points behind Liberia and level in points with Tunisia but with a lower goal difference. Therefore, it will be a tough challenge for the Frenchmen to qualify to the 2017 AFCON.

“We need a miracle to qualify for the 2017 AFCON, perhaps as the best second-placed team,” Le Roy told AFP on Wednesday.

Togo last AFCON participation was back in 2013, where they got knocked out in the quarter finals after losing to eventual runner-ups .
