Richmond Boakye Yiadom is hoping to get to Asamoah Gyan’s level, as he asked for patience and more playing time in the Black Stars.
Boakye Yiadom has admitted in a recent interview that he is not in the best shape of his career.
According to the attacker who’s currently with the Ghana national team competing for the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon, injury setbacks have slowed him down, and he will need time to hit top form.
“I had a couple of injuries when I returned from China, and it slowed me down a little bit. But I believe, to get to the level of half of what Asamoah Gyan did, you need consistency in the national team and there has to be belief,” the striker said.
“You have to believe in the national team. Everybody who supports any national team has to believe the team he supports because we don’t use one day to improve on something,” he continued.
“It needs time and when you give us the time, and you focus on three, four strikers, you keep them, and you begin to work on them at least what he [Asamoah Gyan] did, we may not be able to get to what he did, but we may be able to do half of it. All that I ask from everyone who supports the national team is, they should always believe in their team and their country and be able to do positive things to the players so that they can work hard to achieve what others did,” Boakye Yiadom added.
