Yaya Toure snubs Super Eagles, picks favourites to win title

 Former Cote d’Ivoire captain, Yaya Toure has picked his favourites for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The former Manchester City midfielder snubbed three-time champions Nigeria and picked his country, Senegal, Morocco, Guinea-Bissau and South Africa as his favourites for the title.

“It is normal to have a preference for your own country. Ivory Coast has a strong team and many talented and experienced players,” Toure was quoted by wiwsport.com.

“But if I had to choose teams that I think are favourites, I would say Senegal, Morocco, Guinea-Bissau, South Africa. Their performance during qualifying was impressive.”

The Super Eagles are in Group A with Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.

The Teranga Lions are the defending champions of the competition.

The competition will run from January 13 to February 11.
