Former Ghana international, Asamoah Gyan believes he has made more sacrifices for the national team than any other player in the country’s history.
The legendary striker goes on to state that his teammates and even members of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) are well aware of the selfless sacrifices he has made throughout his career.
Speaking on Asempa FM, Gyan re-echoed his commitment to the Black Stars, citing instances of playing through pain and his overall impact on and off the pitch.
He says, “I always say that there are no players in Ghana’s history who have made more sacrifices than me. I don’t see any player. Everybody knows it, even those at the GFA know. When you talk about sacrifices, I know what I’m talking about. The Black Stars was always on my heart. I made sure I did everything to contribute whenever I represented the national team.”
The 37-year-old is the four-time African Champion’s leading top scorer with 51 goals.
The former Sunderland star, who is currently focusing on punditry and scouting players, also shared his excitement for another edition of his Baby Jet U-13 football championship.
The tournament has been instrumental in unearthing talented players, including Daniel Afriyie Barniel of FC Zurich and Mathew Anim Cudjoe, who currently plays for Dundee United in Scotland.
