Ghana’s all-time top scorer Asamoah Gyan has said that most Ghanaian players who featured for the national team leave the international scene unhappy.
The 34 year old hasn’t had the best of times in the national team over the past year. He was stripped off his captaincy, a decision which forced him to announce his retirement before later rescinding his decision.
“If we look at things, people leave the national team with pain,” Gyan said on Adom TV.
“There are a lot of players, I can testify. I don’t want to mention names but for me, I am just there.”
Speaking of retirement, Gyan believes he deserves a proper send off when it is time for him to call it a day with football.
“The people at the top have seen what I have done so if they decide to give me a farewell something, definitely my soul will be happy. Although people appreciate me it will depend on how to do it,” Gyan said on a possible retirement.
“I will do my job till the time I am done. I can decide with my team that I will play a testimonial game. GFA can decide that they will do something for me [play a game or something]. It will depend on them.
“Secondly it will depend on me on how I want to go about it. For now, I am still in the game but as time goes on, ideas will come.
“I haven’t planned [on how I will exit the Black Stars]. I am still playing. It is natural. I could tell you that I will retire in four years but I can call my brother the next day and tell him that I cannot continue playing.
“It depends on how the day goes. Every day, the human body changes so let’s see how it goes but for now, I am okay and playing football.”
Asamoah Gyan is regarded as one of the best center forwards Ghana has ever produced. He’s the country’s leading scorer (51 goals) and the player with the most appearances (109 appearances).
