Ghana striker Asamoa Gyan is not ready to give up his place in the national team Black Stars amid fitness concerns. The striker added that he is ready to give space to the young players though.

The Kayserispor striker has been battling with fitness the past four years and calls are heightenining for him to quit international football. Gyan's absence was not felt when he sat out the 5-1 win at Congo in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier played eight days ago in Brazzaville.

-The past three years have been very difficult, fitness-wise I try to use my experience to do a lot of things. Somebody will say, 'he is done,' but I am not done. It is just the circumstances., Gyan told KweseESPN.

I try to use my experience to do a lot of things. Somebody will say, 'he is done,' but I am not done. It is just the circumstances. I started playing for this team in 2003 and I have made my mark. I have been around for a long time. When the Black Stars are playing, everyone expects me to score, which is normal, Ghana's all time scorer added.

Hungry Young Players

Gyan feels that he will give chance to the budding talent after accomplishing his personal achievement with the national side.

Asamoah Gyan is not going to play for the Black Stars forever. There are young, hungry players coming up so we have to encourage them. People paved the way for me to get here. I have also set the standard for myself and my nation. I have done something for myself and for Ghana. The young ones coming can learn something from it, Gyan concluded.
