Unlike several of his peers, Didier Six is rather in favorable of holding 2021 AFCON on the dates as initially planned (9 January to 6 February) in Cameroon.
“I think the pandemic is starting to change view. So all is coming back in order. I don’t think we should postpone 2021 AFCON. It should be left on the same dates,” said the Guinea coach to Africa Football Media.
With the coronavirus, opinions are divided as to the holding of the 2021 AFCON on the initial dates. Especially because of the playoffs that still remain to be completed. Currently, there are 4 qualifying days left for 4 or 6 dates in September, October and November.
In addition, Six has been leading Guinea for nearly a year. “The Syli has 4 points after the first two days of the playoffs. The objectives are to train a team and go further than Guinea has ever done so far”, he said.
