Togo Advertise National Football Coach Position
The Togo Football Federation (FTF) has issued a call for applications from coaches around the country and beyond to take up the vacant Sparrow Hawks coaching job.
The position has been vacant after embattled coach Claude Le Roy resigned from his position on April 12 following five years with Togo national team.
