Big rant in Senegal


By: Manu Tournoux

Senegal coach Aliou Cissé demanded more respect for his team, which is coming to defend its crown during CAN 2024.

Senegal unveiled its list for the next African Cup of Nations this Friday, and Aliou Cissé took the opportunity to send a message. The coach of the Lions of Téranga wants to sweep away any doubts that there may be around his team.

“We are not afraid. We are going to this CAN with many, many ambitions. We are African champions and, at times, we talk about our team as if we had done nothing! I think this Senegal team deserves a little more consideration, railed the technician, in comments relayed by Afrik-Foot. If we, with everything we have achieved, go to this CAN without having confidence in ourselves, I I don’t know which African team will have confidence in itself. Avoid putting unnecessary pressure on the coach and players. Promote this team, push it, that’s what is expected of you, not create doubt. »

Senegal won the previous CAN two years ago. In the process, Kalidou Koulibaly and his teammates reached the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, before negotiating his group well in the qualifiers for this CAN (4 wins, 2 draws). During CAN 2024, Senegal will face Gambia, Cameroon and Guinea in Group C.
