Claude LeRoy will not be sacked as Togo stand with him

Claude Le Roy

The Football Association has decided not to sack manager  after he was sentenced to 2 years in prison.

The former Cameroon and Senegal manager was sentenced to two years in prison after being found guilty of fraudulent activity whilst at Racing Strasbourg between 1998 and 2003.

The High Court of Stasbourg suspended 18 months of the sentence, however the newly appointed Togo manager completely denies any wrongdoing.

Whilst speaking to the BBC Claude LeRoy said, “I know concerning Strasbourg that I’m completely clear. All I have to do is wait the decision of the president of the tribunal on 13 September.”

LeRoy was sentenced alongside his club’s former president Patrick Proisy who was jailed for three years with 30 months of that being suspended.
