Asamoah Gyan rescinds decision to retire from Black Stars after Presidential intervention

‘Former Black Stars captain-now-general captain’, Asamoah Gyan, has rescinded his decision to retire from the senior national team.

This follows a Presidential intervention by Ghana’s President, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who spoke to Gyan and the Black stars coach Kwasi Appiah after the former quit the national team last Monday.

It would be recalled that Gyan, highly touted as Ghana’s all-time goal scorer, shockingly retired from the national team over a harmless captaincy issue. Coach Appiah had decided to strip the striker of the captaincy and that decision did not go down well with the Turkey-based striker who decided to call time on his memorable international career.

In a statement, the former captain noted that he had had a fruitful conversation with the President who asked him (Gyan) to rescind his decision to retire from the national team.

“A Presidential request is one that cannot be disregarded.

“I have taken the request of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in good faith, and will make myself available for selection by coach Kwasi Appiah”, the statement added.

Gyan also reminded Ghanaians of his resolve to help the team win the African Cup of Nations.

“My desire to help Ghana end the over three-decade long wait to annex the AFCON trophy still burns strong, and I remain committed to serving this great nation and the people of Ghana”, he concluded.
