The deputy minister of Youth and Sports, Hon. Evans Opoku Bobbie, has stated that he will support Asamoah Gyan’s inclusion in the 2022 World Cup squad if he gets himself fit.
In August, Gyan revealed on BBC that he is aiming to get himself in shape to be able to compete for Ghana in Qatar despite no footballing action in over a year.
Some people are against his inclusion whilst some want him back.
Hon. Bobbie gave his thoughts on Gyan’s matter.
“If he improves his fitness and we can take him, I will support it. On the world stage he has the experience,” he said on Wamputu Sports.
“The Plan B could be that if we help him to score at the World Cup he extends his World Cup record which also gives Ghana more mileage. He has that fear factor that many countries know of. But it all bows down to the technical team to select him. We at the Sports Ministry are concerned about policy direction and not selecting players,” he added.
Gyan has scored 51 goals for his country.
