Staff[edit]

  • President: Daniel Leighton


Under Mr Leighton’s presidency the footballing fortune of Togo has being revived as they begin a fresh assault on the African cup of nations. Despite severe funding restrictions during the early part of his reign he continued to implement his vision on the team by using everything at his disposal including using a moving Renault Espace as shooting practice. During games he can be seen on the side lines shouting “four-four fucking two” at the players as well as “Keep this up and you will be playing at the bright lights of Victoria Park soon” and his trademark celebration of waving a glove about and running up and down like a misbehaving child

Despite Togo’s rise to footballing prominence his reign has not been without controversy as his attempt to join in with native African dance was described “incredible racist” but his gesture of FREE PORK PIES FOR THE NATION OF TOGO was warmly received by a grateful Togo
