Gyan reverses international retirement

22 May 2019, 07:40

Black Stars veteran striker Asamoah Gyan has reversed his decision to retire from international football, less than 24 hours after making the call.

As was reported on Futaa on Monday, Gyan was confirmed to have quit playing for Ghana, however, the latest out of the story now suggests that this is no longer the case.

In fact, the twist would not have taken place if the country’s president Nana Akufo Addo did not make a request to Gyan to change his mind.

"The President urged him, in the national interest, to rescind his decision to retire from the Black Stars, and make himself available for selection by Coach Kwesi Appiah,” the president’s spokesperson Eugene Arhin said in a statement.

Leading Ghanian publishers Ghana Soccer Net also added to the confirmation this morning.

“Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has reversed his decision to quit international football just 24 hours after angrily retiring from the Black Stars, Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.

“The Turkey-based striker has now accepted to the role of being the General Captain of the Black Stars after quitting the team over Kwesi Appiah's decision to strip him of the captaincy.

“Gyan will announce his decision to return to the side in the coming hours - sources close to the striker have told Ghana's leading football news website, Ghanasoccernet.com.”
