DAR ES SALAAM - Ivory Coast coach Vahid Halilhodzic is concerned about the fitness of some of his players ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations but was optimistic of winning the title in Angola.
The Ivorians, who are in Tanzania to play two build-up matches against the hosts and Rwanda, are one of the favourites to win the competition.
But Halilhodzic said his Europe-based players have been involved in too many matches and were at risk of being fatigued for the tournament.
â€œImagine someone plays up to three matches in a week. Players are supposed to rest â€“â€“ but in my team many of the players have a lot of responsibilities for their clubs,â€ said Halilhodzic.
