Akufo-Addo reaches out to Gyan to Rescind retirement decision


Available information indicates Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has rescinded his earlier decision to retire from the national team after a lengthy chat with President Nana Akufo-Addo on Tuesday.

Sources at the Gyan camp reveals an official Press Statement is expected to be released in the next few hours confirming his comeback into the national team.

Meanwhile Eugene Arhin who is a Director of Communication at the Presidency confirmed the telephone interview between Gyan and the President in a post on Facebook.

He also confirmed the fact that it was the President who has impressed on the player to return to the team for the sake of unity and peace.

“President Akufo-Addo, subsequently, also spoke on the telephone with Asamoah Gyan, and informed him of the considerable national disquiet over his decision to retire from the Black Stars.

“The President urged him, in the national interest, to rescind his decision to retire from the Black Stars, and make himself available for selection by Coach Kwasi Appiah,” he said in a Facebook post.

Gyan quit the team last Monday over a decision to strip him of the captain’s armband for AFCON 2019.

He released a statement late Monday evening recusing himself from AFCON 2019 over what he claimed was a decision by the head coach to hand the captaincy to another player for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
