Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has disclosed that he has not retired from football yet and even has more to offer the national team as the Black Stars are struggling to get his better replacement.
For the first time in 15-years, Ghana went to the AFCON without their all-time top scorer, however, the Black Stars recorded their worst performance ever at the AFCON.
The West African powerhouse eliminated from the ongoing 2021 African cup of nations tournament in Cameroon at group stages after getting only a point from their 3 games in group c.
They lost their opening game by 1-0 to Morocco, draw 1-1 to Gabon, and lost 3-2 to Comoros.
This is the Comoros first time qualifying to the AFCON, and they lost their 2 group games against Morocco and Gabon without scoring a goal, but ended up disgracing Ghana 3-2 in the last match.
And this was the first time the four times African champions have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win, and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
Speaking in an interview on SuperSports on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, Asamaoh Gyan disclosed that he has not retired from football yet, as he declared his readiness to play for the Ghana national team.
“I haven’t retired yet. If I need to play I have to shed some weight and be active before and train week in week out, and I will be good to go,” he said.
“Body wise I still feel young at heart, I still goat a lot to offer. The mind is there, everything is alright, but physically, I don’t think I’m ready for now. I need to work on my body,” the former Black Stars captain added.
