Goal.com spoke with Ivory Coast defender, Siaka Tiéné about his sides splendid performance in the 3-0 win against Tunisia on Saturday night
Former Mamelodi Sundowns defender Siaka Tiéné has told Goal.com that the pundits should not read too much into Ivory Coast's great start to the 2013 Afcon, where they've received the maximum six points so far.
The Paris Saint-Germain player said that although fans believe they are the favourites in the 2013 Afcon so far, he pointed out that the best is yet to come for the Elephants.
“We pushed Tunisia really hard. We won the game convincingly, but I still think that we haven’t performed to the best of our ability in this tournament. There is more to come,” said Tiéné.
Ivory Coast last won the Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 1992 when they beat Ghana 11-10 on penalties after the game ended 0-0.
Back in familiar surroundings in South Africa where he participated in the Premier Soccer League, the defender wants to win the 2013 Afcon trophy for the fans back home.
“Our fans should expect more from us because we really owe this Afcon trophy to the Ivorians,” he said.
