Asamoah Gyan insists he is still general captain of Black Stars

Published on: 17 October 2020

Former Sunderland striker, Asamoah Gyan, still thinks that he is the General captain of the Black Stars, a role given to him in 2019.

Fans were convinced that he no longer held the role after CK Akonnor named his captains earlier this year.

Andre Ayew was main captain with Partey and Ofori assisting him.

"It looks like [I am no longer general captain of Black Stars] but they have not said that they are giving that position to someone else so I think I am still the general capatain. That is the position they gave me. I know that right now they have named captains of the team but I want them to tell me that this player is the general captain because they put me there," he told Adom TV.

"I am usually consulted by management with ideas because of my experience in the national team. I came to the national team in 2003. Where were the current breed of players then? So they know that I know a lot of things. There are some trivial issues that I am usually consulted for my advise. With what I have achieved in the national team, you cannot make a decision and leave me in the dark."

"Right now I am at home. If I am given the general captain, I will feel someway about it but since I have not been told that it has been given to someone else, [I am still general captain]," he concluded.
