Stephen Keshi in Lomé

The official Togolese government news website reports that Stephen Keshi is currently in Lom̩. Presumably the ex-coach of the Togolese national football team is talking with the Togolese Football Federation (FTF) about a job. The FTF is now under new management Рits new president Tata was formally installed on Tuesday. A connection between the two events is quite probable.

Keshi, who celebrated his 46th birthday yesterday, coached the Eperviers when they qualified for the Worldcup in Germany last year, but then the team tanked during the African Cup and he was sacked right before the Togo’s first-ever Worldcup appearance. This sparked total chaos for the team and the management during the event and caused an embarrassing performance of the team in Germany – well below its potential. However, much more embarrassing was the inability of the FTF management to deal with the situation constructively.

    The problem of hiring and firing coaches is the order of the day in our African Association. CAF is a white elephant which waits for FIFA to tell it to move. We need a change now not tomorrow.
