A few hours before the start of the 29th edition of Afcon, the Ivory Coast international, Kolo Touré announced on a radio station that the Black Stars of Ghana are the favorites of the competition.
"I think it is the Black Stars who head the list," he said.
These diplomatic views of the Ivorian defender show the humility of the player.
All polls state that Ivory Coast is the favorite but Kolo thinks the stars are not necessarily a great football team, "Look at the Egyptians. They don't have in their ranks the superstars but they won three consecutive times the competition ".
The player of Manchester City has participated in six (6) African Cup of Nations with the Elephants.
