Tchanilé is a controversial figure. He was in 2000 and 2004 national coach of Togo, but was especially known because six years ago, he was suspended for organizing ‘fake’ training duels.

In september of 2010, lost a team, posing as the national team of Togo, under the leadership of the former assistant coach Tchanilé a friendly in and against Bahrain with 3-0.

Two months before that match had Tchanilé also been a ‘fake-interland’ in Egypt organized.

Nematandani was in 2012 already once suspended by the South African bond because of the alleged machtfixing in training duels of South Africa in the run-up to the 2010 world cup.
