Grant looks forward to Afcon and competition in Group C

6 years ago

Avram Grant is anticipating a tough qualification group at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations after the Black Stars were drawn against Senegal, South Africa and Algeria in Group C.

The new Black Stars coach said he is excited to be leading the team to Equatorial Guinea for the competition.

The campaign will begin in January of next year and Grant has full confidence that his team will be up for the challenging group. All the teams in Group C with the exception of Senegal are former winners.

“When we go to the AFCON, as a coach I want us to win games and we will win games and will see what will happen. But we will do our best at the tournament,” Grant told in his first official interview.

Despite the tournament being his debut, Grant has been a keen follower of the competition.

"I follow the African Cup because I've had players playing in it in some of the Clubs I've managed like Michael Essien. So I have followed the last four editions closely,” he said.
