Pfister named as Togo coach for opener

FRANKFURT, June 13 (Reuters) - Otto Pfister was named as Togo coach on the official team sheet for the side's World Cup debut against South Korea on Tuesday after days of confusion over who would be in charge.

Just hours before the game, a Togo player had told Reuters Pfister would not be on the bench and Togolese officials said they were still negotiation with him.

The West Africans play South Korea at 3pm. (1300 GMT).

Pfister, who has spent much of his life globetrotting, coaching eight countries before Togo, quit last week, saying he could not work as a pay dispute between players and officials distracted his team.

The pay row, in which players have boycotted training sessions, had still not been resolved, the player said.

Pfister was not immediately available to comment.

Togo promoted assistant Kodjovi Mawuena to the top job and then held talks with German Winfried Schaefer about taking the coaching job.

However, Pfister said on Monday he was returning to the squad and would be in the charge for the first match.

Appeals from the players had persuaded him to change his mind, he said.

Players have demanded 155,000 euros ($196,200) each to play in the World Cup plus 30,000 each per win and 15,000 per draw.

Officials from a country with average per capita income well below $1,000 have said the demands are too high.
