AFCON 2017: Ghana needs luck to win in Gabon –Renard

Morocco head coach, Herve Renard  claimed Ghana need a bit of luck to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations despite their qualities.

The Black Stars had been present at all Afcon editions since 2006, reaching the semi-finals five times and the final twice in 2010 and 2015.

“Ghana has the qualities to win every tournament but luck always elude them during tournaments. They can win this very championship but they need a bit of luck,” Renard told TV3.

“It is difficult to judge from the outside but Ghana always have big potentials, always with good players.

“Now the team is very different but at every Afcon, there is a chance for Ghana who normally are in the last four. Maybe they have to believe in themselves a bit more and be a bit lucky,” he added.

Ghana is in Group D alongside Egypt, Mali and Uganda, with the tournament kicking off this weekend in Gabon.

Renard guided Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire to clinch the Afcon in 2012 and 2015 respectively, becoming the only coach to achieve that feat.

He had also expressed his interest in coaching Ghana in the future.
