Senegal name Joseph Koto as full-time coach

Joseph Koto has been appointed fulltime coach of Senegal for the rest of their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign, the national football federation said on Thursday.

Koto was put in charge on a temporary basis after the dismissal of Amara Traore in February following a poor African Nations Cup competition for the team.

Senegal picked up four points from their opening two World Cup Group J matches last month - a home win over Liberia and a draw in Uganda.

In April, Senegal appointed Pierre Lechantre, a former Nations Cup winner, as coach only for the Frenchman to pull out of the deal just two weeks later.

Former international Koto is also coach of the under-23 side who will compete this month in the men's football tournament at the London Olympics.
