Management Committee Chairman of the Black Stars, Mr. George Amoako says legendary striker Asamoah Gyan was never happy with the decision to be named as a General Captain of the national team.
Gyan, 33, lost his captaincy to his then deputy Andre Ayew ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] in Egypt under James Kwasi Appiah as the head coach of the team.
However, new Ghana coach CK Akonnor recently maintained Ayew as captain of the team with Thomas Partey and Richard Ofori being his two deputies and completely scrapping off the general captain role.
According to Mr Amoako who also doubles as Ghana FA ExCo member, the former Sunderland and Kayserispor was never interested and happy with his role as the general captain of the team.
“Asamoah Gyan was never interested in the position of the General captain of the Black Stars,” George Amoako, who is the Chief Executive Officer told Kumasi based Nhyira FM.
“He did not understand the role as a General captain of the team. I think if you don’t like the person as a captain, you let him understand but you don’t give a role that is complex,” he added.
Asamoah Gyan has been out of the Black Stars after the 2019 Afcon in Egypt.
