Claude Le Roy has resigned as head coach of Togo following the country’s failed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.

The Sparrowhawks finished bottom of a group containing Egypt, Comoros and Kenya having conjured just two points from six matches.


Le Roy, 73, has coached at a record nine Cup of Nations finals and despite just leaving his post as Togo boss, the Frenchman still hopes to continue his African football journey.

“In football, there is only one thing that matters and that is the results,” Le Roy told Radio France International on Tuesday.

“But I hope to still be a coach of some team at the next Cup of Nations. I’m still getting offers from all over,” he added.

Apart from coaching Togo, Ley Roy has been in charge of the national teams of Cameroon, Senegal, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana and Congo. He led the Indomitable Lions to the 1988 title in Morocco.
