Togo on the verge of collapse



p>Two days after Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor pulled out of the team following a match bonus row, other players are threatening to follow suit.

Coach Didier Six told reporters on Monday he would wait for about 72 hours to react to the situation, whether to stay put or resign.

He said he wanted to see how many key players would quit in solidarity with the Tottenham striker, who last week denounced the nonpayment of bonuses to players after they defeated Morocco 1-0 in an international friendly last month in Casablanca.

Togo football federation says it did not promise a win-bonus package to players ahead of the meeting, although officials admitted receiving €35,000 (R404,000) from the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, but said was meant to cover travel and hotel expenses and not to pay bonuses.

The Sparrow Hawks first choice goalkeeper Kossi Agassa and midfielder Alaixys Romao of French Ligue 1 side Lorient have vowed to abandon the outfit as well if Adebayor’s decision was confirmed.

Togo are in one of the toughest groups of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, opening their campaign against 2012 finalists Ivory Coast before facing the two other members of Group D Algeria and Tunisia.
