Keshi clashed with star player Adebayor at the Nations Cup
Togo's Football Federation (TFF) has sacked national coach Stephen Keshi.
The TFF's decision was announced during a television programme in Lome on Monday.
Federation officials stated that differences between Keshi and key players of the national team had forced them to take the decision.
Keshi, the former Nigeria captain, achieved the unprecedented feat of earning Togo a ticket to this summer's World Cup finals, ahead of Senegal and Zambia.
But the national team's first-round exit at the African Cup of Nations, where Keshi had a row with star player Sheyi Adebayor, had caused key TFF officials to turn against him.
German coach Otto Pfister and Bora Milutinovic, the Serbian that managed Nigeria at the 1998 World Cup finals, are among the candidates in the running to replace Keshi.
Pfister, who managed Ghana at the 1992 Nations Cup finals, has opened talks with TFF officials.
Togo have been drawn in Group G at the World Cup finals, alongside France,
South Korea and Switzerland.
