The Federation of Togolese Football Association has appointed Tchakala Tchanile to take over as national head coach from Frenchman Didier Six.

The 46 year old who has been an assistant to Didier for the past two years has been given a 6 month contract taking him through to the 2015 Morroco AFCON finals in January, if they qualify.

Togo begin their qualifying campaign in September away to Guinea, and also take on Ghana and the eventual winner between Uganda and Equatorial Guinea in Group E.

Tchakala is a brother to Bana Tchnile, a former national team coach who was banned from soccer premises for three years after taking a team masquerading as the national side to play a friendly fixture against Bahrain in 2010.
