Ghanaian legend Reverend Osei Kofi has advised Asamoah Gyan to leave Black Stars “honourably” because he believes the legendary striker’s time is up.
Gyan has been a member of the Black Stars since 2003 and has scored a record 51 goals.
The last time he played for the national team was the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in 2019. Gyan has not been invited to the team since the tournament.
Last weekend Akonnor made changes to the team’s leadership scrapping off Gyan’s general captain position. Ayew remains the captain of the team assisted by Thomas Partey and goalkeeper Richard Ofori.
Many believe the decision means Gyan, who currently has no club, is not in Akonnor’s plans.
The 1965 African Cup winner, Rev. Osei Kofi advised Gyan to announce his retirement from the team.
“Good name is better than riches and if Gyan will listen to me, he should quit the Black Stars because he is not the Gyan we used to know,” said the Black Stars legend.
“I think he should honourably resign from the team to save his name,” he told Angel FM.
Asamoah Gyan had been training in Ghana since his contract with Indian side NorthEast United was terminated in January.
