Asamoah Gyan Retires From National Team (Read Full Statement)

Asamoah has in a press statement announced that he’s done with the senior national team and he is retiring.

With less than 24 hours till Kwesi Appiah announces his 30 man squad for the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, Asamoah Gyan has stated that he’s retiring from the National team over reports that, he will be stripped of the captaincy position in the team.

Several reports have suggested Asamoah Gyan was going to be named General captain. Dede Ayew was expected to captain the side. The general captain has often meant a silent demotion within the Black Stars.

“if it is the decision of the coach is to give captaincy of the tournament to another player while I am in the team for the tournament, I wish to recuse myself from the tournament”

It’s obvious that Gyan is hurt by the decision.
