Togo coach Paulo Duarte resigns

PAULO Duarte has ended his three-year reign as coach of Togo having submitted his resignation with the team struggling in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, officials confirmed.

“The Executive Committee regrets this decision but takes note of it and wishes to express its gratitude to him for his work, commitment and professionalism during the years of collaboration,” the Togolese Football Federation said in a statement.

No specific reason has been given for the Portuguese’s decision, but he failed to qualify the side for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations and they are languishing in fourth in their World Cup qualification pool, seven points behind leaders Sudan and five behind powerhouse Senegal.

Only the top team in each of the nine pools advance automatically to the finals in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
