Ghana will win AFCON, Chipolopolo coach Renard tells Ghana TV

Zambia coach Herve Renard has tipped the Black Stars of Ghana as the number one favourites to lift the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations title. 

Renard, 44, who spent more than a year with the Ghana team during the reign of compatriot Claude Le Roy in a ‘strange’ capacity as a physical trainer, told GNA Sports in Bata that the Black Stars are the clear-cut favourites with the measuring rod being their recent performances. 

The Frenchman, who has proved his technical prowess at the helm of the Chipolopolos side, said the depth in quality of the Black Stars team ranks them above the other contenders. 

The ever-confident Renard who guided the Chipolopolos to stun the Teranga Lions of Senegal in their opener at the tournament, added that most of the players in the Ghana team have matured. 

The Zambian trainer admits that the journey will not be smooth for the Black Stars, but noted that they have the ability to reach farthest with a little effort. 

Meanwhile, Renard has set a quarter final target for his team who have four points from two games so far.
