The General Captain of Ghana Black Star Asamoah Gyan has finally congratulated his colleague Andre André Dede Ayew as the new Captain of the senior national team, the Black Stars ahead of AFCON 2019 tournament.
“What I can promise Ghanaians is that, Former Captain Asamoah Gyan is very happy and all he wants to say is that, he congratulates André Dede Ayew and Kwadwo Asamoah for taking this position and we are with them. In fact they have been with us all these years when we were captaining the national team”.
Spokesperson of Asamoah Gyan, Mr Kweku Obeng told GBC’s Radio program ‘Behind the News’ monitored by MyNewsGh Syxtus Eshun.
The Black Stars striker has been in the news in recent times for all the wrong reasons including his short-lived resignation.
It would be recalled that on Monday May 20, 2019, Gyan issued a letter announcing his resignation from the senior national raising a number of issues for his early retirement.
He made a sudden U-turn following a phone conversation with the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who held a meeting with the Sports Minister, Normalization Committee and the Coach of the team.
But on behalf of the captain, Mr Obeng said Asamoah Gyan has pledged his support to Dede Ayew.
“We are pledging our massive support especially in this particular campaign and the objective is that we need to bring the trophy here and that is what we opt for”, he assured.
