Cote d’Ivoire head coach, Emerse Fae says he can’t describe the overwhelmingly great feeling of guiding the Elephants to glory on home soil.
The hosts came from almost being knocked out to winning the title.
Fae’s side came from a goal down to seal an emphatic 2-1 win against the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Alassanne Quattara Stadium, Ebimpe, Abidjan on Sunday night
“I still find it hard to believe it. We went through all the emotions. This competition will mark my life, that’s for sure,” Fae told reporters after the game.
”I took the reins of the team, on my birthday and we were almost knocked out, yet things turned around thanks to the hard work of these players and today they have been rewarded and more importantly, they rewarded our loyal people.”
The young tactician was named the Best Coach of the Tournament.
