Asamoah Gyan ‘snubs’ Ghana black stars
Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, has said final goodbye to the senior national team of the Black Stars.
His retirement from the Black Stars comes after recusing himself from selection for 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
“As an active footballer yet to retire, I have been in the team since 2003 and have played with some members of the technical team who were my seniors.
”Through such periods, there were no times substantive captains were part of a team in a tournament and had to surrender their captaincy to other players and served different capacities.” he said in a statement.
He mentioned former captains Stephen Appiah and Richard Kingson as players in good positions to understand his concerns.
Gyan leaves the Black Stars as the lead scorer with over 50 goals after leading the team at three World Cup competitions.
