Shocker! Gyan Rescinds Retirement, Heads To Afcon 2019

Published

Ghana legendary striker Asamoah Gyan has backtracked on his decision to retire from international football just 24 hours after angrily retiring from the Black Stars.

The Turkey-based striker also 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.

The 106-capped international reversed his decision after speaking to the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, on Tuesday.

In a post on Twitter, Gyan wrote: “A presidential request is one that cannot be disregarded.

“I have taken the request of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in good faith, and will make myself available for selection by coach Kwasi Appiah to help win the AFCON trophy.”

Gyan retired from international football on Monday after been replaced as Ghana captain, a month before the start of the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
