Togo Or Not Togo

The saga of the unfortunately named Otto Pfister and the Togo national team got even more complex today.

quit over a pay and bonuses dispute, it appeared this morning that Mr Pfister had been reinstated just in time for their opening match with South Korea.

Togo's press officer Messan Attalou
told local reporters: "He will be in charge for the opening match and for the duration of the tournament."

This has come as quite a shock to the
Togo sports minister who seems to know nothing about it and to assistant coach Kodjovi Mawuena who believes that he is in charge of the team !

Great fun ! I love the Africans - they seem to manage to complicate even the simplest thing. Not so good for them, but extremely funny for the rest of us.

I also have a sneaking feeling that Togo won't win their match. Wonder why ?
