Togo coach Garzitto resigns
Diego Garzitto
Garzitto had been unable to agree a contract
Togo coach Diego Garzitto has quit after just eight weeks in the job, after a row with the country's FA over money.

The French-Italian said he took the decision because he felt the FA had not honoured their commitments to him.

"I can't continue to work in this way," Garzitto said.

"They keep on assuring me but they have not been able to keep to their promises."

Two months into the job, Garzitto had not been offered a firm contract.

Money

But Togo FA president Rock Gnassingbe said the coach had made impossible demands on them.

"We could not reach an agreement over his salary, so negotiations broke down and Garzitto has decided to look elsewhere," Gnassingbe said.

"We have been holding talks for a long time but he has rejected our offer."

It is not clear how much money is involved, but Garzitto received a monthly salary of $10,000 when he handled the Ethiopian Under-20 side.

He took the Ethiopians to the 2001 World Youth Cup in Argentina before his contract ran out last year.

Garzitto's departure comes 24 hours ahead of their trip to Ivory Coast for the Wafu Cup tournament.

Amelete Agbalo of first division side Maranatha has been named as his temporary replacement.
