Former Ghana Blackstars captain, Asamoah Gyan has reiterated he has not retired from international football, stating everything is possible with a likely return to the national team.
The Legon City forward is currently in Younde, Cameroon as part of the legendary African footballers selected to make the group stage draw for the AFCON 2022 to be staged in Cameroon.
Asamoah, speaking from Cameroon in a telephone interview with Kessben Sports said he was a bit surprised but however not also much surprised to have been part of the selected legends to run the draw. “I was a bit surprised but not surprised that much because of the level I have got in the game. I will really want to thank CAF for the recognition. I feel honoured” Asamoah said.
“Let’s support the coach and squad. We are all Ghanaians. Some Ghanaians will not pray for us to lose but will feel guilty when we lose in their rooms when they don’t support”
Reacting to a question whether or not if he’s done with the national team, this is what Asamoah Gyan had to say, “Everything is possible, I haven’t retired. I had Physical problems with my weight. It has not come into my mind to retire. I came to the scene very early, maybe that’s why but what is important is to get back to my normal shape. When I get to my normal shape we will see, I came to Legon city but had problems with my weight and couldn’t really help me assess myself well. Will play for one more season and see. I have seen great African footballers come out from retirement to play for their national team so everything is possible”. Asamoah Gyan added
