Normalization Committee Spokesperson Dan Kwaku Yeboah has revealed that Andre Ayew and Asamoah Gyan are not on good terms.
This comes in after Gyan announced his intention of playing for the Black Stars in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The pair clashed during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations over the captaincy of the national team. In the end, Andre was named captain whilst Gyan served as general captain. That is the last tournament both players have featured for Ghana.
Dan Yeboah believes that if Gyan is to be added, then Dede has to be convinced.
“Another problem is that Dede and Asamoah are not on good terms. Dede is the captain now, if you add Asamoah to the team, it could bring issues. If we are going to send Gyan to the World Cup then we’ll have to speak to both of them. They laugh in public but it’s just for the camera.
“We should speak to them for them to appreciate that we’ll be sending them there in the interest of the country. What happened in the 2019 AFCON shows clearly that the two of them are not on good terms. Asamoah Gyan brings good vibes around the team but if he is to go, then we must speak to him and Dede to remind them that Ghana’s interest is supreme,” he said.
Asamoah Gyan has netted 51 goals for the Black Stars so far.
