Black Stars general captain, Asamoah Gyan, has emphatically declared that retiring from game is not in his plans currently.
Gyna, who is Ghana’s all-time leading to scorer with 51 goals, has not the best of his form for almost a year now and has been affected by some injuries that hampered his time at Kayserispor in Turkey, NorthEast United in India and even with the Black Stars.
Some critics have gone ahead to mention that he should retire from the sport and move into other ventures.
However, the former Sunderland and Al Ain goal machine, has boldly stated that he does not intent to quit football at the moment.
Gyan disclosed this while speaking in an interview with TV3’s Juliet Bawuah on her “In Conversation” programme on Saturday evening.
“It looks like people want to retire me but I am not done yet. I had a couple of injuries but I am getting back to full fitness. I am now okay and I feel good in my body. I have gained a bit of weight that I have to lose and get back to shape.
For me, what I feel will make someone quit is the lack of dedication but my dedication is still there and so, I feel I have a lot to prove on the field. I always say to myself that I will call it a day on my own terms. Nobody can retire me.”
Gyan’s last active stint was with NorthEast United in India between October and December of 2019.
He scored 4 goals in 8 matches played and following the interview with Juliet Bawuah, it is very likely that fans will see him back on the pitch as soon as regular football returns.
