Even Yaya Toure Knew Black Stars Were Better Than Ivory Coast In 2015 AFCON Final – Avram Grant



Former Black Stars coach, Avram Grant has stated that despite Ghana’s inability to win the 2015 AfCON trophy, there were a better side compared to the Ivorian national team in the tournament for that particular year.

Despite starting on a low note in the 2015 African Cup Of Nations tournament, the Black Stars, led by Avram Grant, bounced remarkably sailing through to the final of the competition where they faced Ivory Coast, a side that denied Ghana the opportunity to win the trophy in 1992.

The highly competitive AfCON final proceeded to penalty shoot-outs with Ghana’s Black Stars losing to their Ivorian counterparts who were playing their second consecutive AfCON final after losing to Zambia in the previous edition of the tournament.

Divergent to the fact that Ghana lost to arch-rival Ivory Coast, Avram Grant has stated that he believes he coached a better side with claims that even the then-skipper of Ivory Coast, Yaya Toure could attest to the fact his Black Stars team at that time was better than the Ivorian national team.
