Former Black Stars captain and striker, Asamoah Gyan has disclosed that the national men’s football team has always been his priority over everything else.
Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer, Gyan, had always been a key feature and figure when he was actively playing football.
Touching on his commitment to his country, the former Stade Rennais striker disclosed that he chose to play for Ghana over signing for Manchester City in 2008.
He said that Manchester City was interested in signing him but signed Togo legend Emmanuel Seye Adebayor when he expressed his desire to feature for Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) hosted by Ghana.
Gyan noted that Sven-Göran Eriksson was the manager of Manchester City at the time when Sheikh Mansour had just bought the club and wanted to sign him.
He says that he prides himself on being patriotic and has always chosen the national team over everything including his personal interests.
The former Ghana international insists he hasn’t retired from football but has not been active since leaving Legon Cities of the Ghana Premier League in 2021.
