Togo FA in search of sporting director

The Togo FA says it is on the look out for a sporting director to help stabilise the country’s football and develop local talents

The Togo football federation this week launched a call for applications to the post of sporting director, commonly called National Technical Director (DTN), as the west African nation endeavours to revive its football after years of turbulence.

The FA secretary Yvette Klussey said this week that the body wanted to put in place a programme for reformation and development of the sport, and thus needed a sporting director to propose and implement different strategies that can help revive the nation’s football.

Applicants must be Togolese and they need to have experience in the grassroots level of football, Klussey said.

The successful candidate will be tasked with detecting local talents across the country, arrange for their grooming and also be involved in the management of the domestic league and national teams – junior and senior.

Togolese football is experiencing some stability since early 2011 following the election of a new executive committee of the FA and the resumption of the division one and two leagues after nearly two seasons of interruption caused by internal crisis within the football body.
