Claude Le Roy a fortnight a go informed disposer@Nps that he is looking to end his successful stay in Africa in the 10th edition of the AFCON 2021 to be hosted by Cameroon, where he began in 1985.

The 71-year-old has been at the helm of the biggest footballing nations in the continent, with the likes of: Cameroon, Ghana and Senegal, with the most successful spell coming with the indomitable Lions in the first of his two reigns from 1985-1988, ending runner-up in 1986 and eventually winning the 1988 tourney.
Claude Le Roy is the incumbent of Togo and though he narrowly missed out on the 2019 AFCON, his enviable legacy in the Continent is still in check.
He was one of only two to be recognized president George Weah with the insignia of knights grand commander of Humne order of African redemption.
