Ghana’s all time leading scorer Asamoah Gyan has disclosed that his relationship with former Black Stars Coach Kwesi Appiah has deteriorated.
The two men were close friends, but they fell out just few weeks to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.
Kwesi Appiah left the entire nation astounded when he stripped Asamoah Gyan off his captaincy and named Dede Ayew as new captain without any tangible reason.
The situation left Gyan infuriated. The former Sunderland man went on to announce his retirement from the Black Stars, it took the intervention of President Nana Akufo Addo to get him to rescind the decision.
Gyan was eventually named in the squad for the tournament. He was installed as General captain, but he barely featured at the tourney. He spent most of his time on the bench.
The Black Stars all time leading scorer in an in interview with TV3’s Juliet Bawuah revealed that his relationship with the former Black Stars manager has never been the same since the fall out.
“Honestly I think the relationship is a bit broken because of what happened,”
“I don’t know whether it’s his conscience or it is my conscience but the relationship(gap) between me and him is a bit wide.
“Because I haven’t spoken to him in a while which is a bit strange,” said Gyan who spoke on daily basis before the disagreement broke out.
“Normally we do talk, but we haven’t spoken in a while, but its cool. Any time I see him we will have our normal chat and our normal jokes and everything,” Gyan added.
Kwesi Appiah was axed few months after Ghana’s awful showdown in Morocco.
