Weeks after Togo's unsuccessful AFCON 2022 qualification campaign came to close with a 2-1 home defeat to Kenya, veteran French tactician Claude Le Roy has left his role as Head Coach of the Togolese national team. 

The widely travelled Frenchman Le Roy (73) started his Togo job in April 2016 and guided them side to the 2017 TAFCON in Gabon. But since then, Togo failed to reach the next two Total AFCON editions. “In football, there is only one thing that matters in the end and that is the results. And after a while, you have to draw the lines,” he said.

Having come to the continent in 1985, Le Roy guided numerous teams including Cameroon, Senegal, DR Congo, Ghana, Congo and Togo. He guided The Indomitable Lions Cameroon to AFCON title in 1988.

After Le Roy's announcement, Togolese Football Federation (FTF) accepted his decision on mutual consent. “After missing on qualification to the Total AFCON, Cameroon 2021, Togo National Coach Claude Le Roy decided to resign from his post following a meeting with Ms. Minister of Sports and Leisure Dr. Bessi Lidi-Kama.”
