Also commenting on the victory of Ivory Coast in the Afcon final, OB Conateh said the Elephants have at last reaped the rewards of a long period of hard work and brilliance on the football pitch. ”Everyone knows that Ivory Coast have always been a very good team in the past decade. It is just that they have not been able to lay hands on the ultimate prize and that’s why this year is a special year for them,” he said.
Conateh congratulated the Ivory Coast for winning the title, saluting the good performance of the entire membership of the team and their technical and administrative staff.
