I’m Not Respected In Ghana Despite My Achievements But I’m Highly Revered Elsewhere – Asamoah Gyan Breaks Down

Ghana’s very own Asamoah Gyan is a firm believer that he does not get the recognition he deserves from Ghanaians.

Thus, Gyan feels that despite his achievements for the country called Ghana, he is still not accorded the respect that is due him by the populace.

Speaking on Kessben FM, Gyan said that he was pleasantly surprised by the invitation by the Confederation of Africa Football to have him as one of the legends that graced the draw for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Gyan says the honor done him further shows how much he is regarded on the continent, a feeling he does not get from Ghanaians.

“I feel very honoured to be part of the legends to run this draw. I was a bit surprised, but not too surprised because of the level I have reached in my football career. I’m not respected in Ghana, but outside Ghana, I’m highly revered.”
