After months of negotiations and a woeful World Cup campaign, Six has finally agreed to terms with the Togo Football Federation to see out their last qualifier.
Togo national team manager Didier Six will stay to manage the side in their final 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against DR Congo before leaving his role, BBC Sport can confirm.
Six’s contract was due to expire in January of next year, but due to a dreadful qualifying campaign Togo will play no more matches between the DR Congo matchup and then.
The Frenchman had previously announced in June that he would be leaving his post with Togo after financial disagreements. Six claimed he was owed £83,000 in expenses by the TFF, whilst the TFF claimed that the manager was abusing the expenses system and filing illegitimate claims.
Whilst the financial issues may remain seemingly unresolved, the two parties have reached an agreement whereby Six will manage the team one last time – effectively as a chance for the manager to say goodbye to his players and the fans.
Togo are without a win in their five World Cup qualifiers so far, with only one point gained and two goals to their name. Qualification is impossible at this stage, so Six will leave his position immediately after the match.
Six has already sent a squad list for the match to the TFF, but the roster will not be made public until the week of the match – however it is understood that Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor will not feature, along with Stade Reims’ Kossi Agassa and Olympique Marseille’s Alaixys Romao.
