His comments split public opinion, but Mr Yeboah has now made it clear that he did not want to suggest that Gyan be part of the game team.

Rather, the SWAG President said that the 35-year-old could be taken into the back of the team to inspire the players.



“Let me just stress that I never suggested that Asamoah Gyan should be part of the game team [at the AFCON]” said Mr Yeboah on Monday on GTV’s Sports Highlights show.

“What I hinted at was that I think Asamoah Gyan has to be part of Team Ghana. The Ghana team is different from the team.

“We go to tournaments and see players like Amokachie, Kanu, Okocha with the Nigerian national team. They are back room workers who are there to inspire. That is the point I wanted to address. “

Meanwhile, Gyan has not played for the Black Stars since playing at AFCON 2019 in Egypt, where he was used sparingly.



The former Sunderland striker recently ditched reports that he had retired from football and signaled his readiness to return to play for the national team.

After joining Legon Cities, he returned to the Ghana Premier League before the start of the 2020/21 season.

While the move caused excitement among local football fans, the striker was reduced to just six appearances after a string of injuries.

However, Gyan has hinted that he hasn’t retired from football and is working hard to get fully fit again.
