Footballer Asamoah Gyan has officially revealed that he’s once again available to play for the Ghana Black Stars of Ghana following a request by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
On Monday, Gyan shockingly announced his decision to recuse himself from Ghana’s AFCON squad and also permanently retire from the National team mainly because of a decision to take the captaincy of the team from him.
However, the President in a telephone conversation on Tuesday impressed on him to reconsider his decision and make himself available to the coach for selection.
Gyan in a release shared on social media on Wednesday said he couldn’t say no to the Presidential request and thus has returned to the team.
Gyan is now expected to be named in Ghana’s AFCON squad which will begin camping on June 1.
A presidential request is one that cannot be disregarded.— ASAMOAH GYAN (@ASAMOAH_GYAN3) May 22, 2019
