Ghana’S all-time leading goal scorer Asamoah Gyan is of the opinion that the new technical team and playing body of the Black Stars need time and patience to deliver.
The new Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton began his reign on a winning note against the Palancas Negras of Angola at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The former Brighton and Hove Albion manager has signed a 21-month-long contract as manager of the Black Stars and is being assisted by Mas-Ud Didi Dramani and George Boateng.
Ghana kept it late to secure all three points at stake through a 96th-minute strike by AFC Bournemouth forward Antoine Semenyo who came off the bench in the second half.
After the game, Asamoah Gyan who is Africa’s record goal scorer at the FIFA men’s World Cup asked Ghanaians to be patient with the playing body and the technical team.
He told Akoma FM that the players were under immense pressure, the weather condition was not unfavorable for them so you could see they were struggling, and their movement was a bit slow but the most important thing is getting the victory.
Gyan further stated that it’s a gradual process, we have a new coach who is building a team, and for him, he thinks securing the three points was the most important thing although we didn’t have the best games in football, a win is the most important thing.
He called on Ghanaians to support and be patient with the team.
Ghana will travel to Luanda for the reverse leg in the matchday four games on Monday, March 27.
