Renard wants a lot more from Yaya Toure

Ivory Coast coach Herve Renard says he wants more from Yaya Toure after a below par openinmg game.

The Frenchman wasn't satisfied with his captain Yaya Toure, who was well below his best in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Guinea.

"I think Yaya was a bit tired at the end of the game so it was better for him to come off, but he is a big competitor so he'll be ready for the second game," said Renard ahead of Saturday's match against Mali.

"He has a big responsibility now, with the captain's armband. I expect a better second game from him than the first one.

"If he is not able to improve his level it will be difficult for the team."
