CHAN 2016 – Yves Bissouma is my best player, says Mali coach

Mali coach Djibril Drame who caused a lot of laughter at the press conference  after his side shocked the Elephants of Ivory Coast to reach the final of the Orange African Nations Championships in Rwanda.

The coach who took his time when answering questions said that they took each and every match one by one and that even the final it will be the same.

He said that he  does not fear Congo but he admits they are experienced. 

‘Our opponents is a very big team team but we will first study their game and we play as planned and it will be a technical match ‘

‘I have a story which I want to tell you, I really like my number 8 player and he is my best although he has some disciplinary issues I rested him, when it was second half I told him that I want to field you but only if you are going to score, if you don’t I pull you out. When he played you saw he scored’

His  sstory caused a lot of humour  at the press. The player in  question was As Real de Bamako midfielder Yves Bissouma who scored a beauty that sent the west Africans to the finals.

Mali will meet Congo DR who edged Guinea on post match penalties yesterday at the  Stade Amahoro.
