The Head of sports at A1 radio, Khrusum Humul Tahiru is shocked Asamoah Gyan wants to make a return to the Black Stars ahead of the Qatar World Cup. 

“For me I am surprised that Asamoah Gyan is calling to be part of the team. But my question is, to be part of the team as an advisor, to be part of the team as a member of the technical team or a management member or somebody who has experience or to be part of the team as a player?”

She made the comments on the back of a recent revelation from the famed Baby Jet that a return to the Black Stars ahead of the World Cup is something he would cherish.

The Head of Sports, Madam Humul Tahiru admitted that the accomplishments of Asamoah Gyan can’t be downplayed as he is undoubtedly one of the greatest strikers the country has produced. He is the country’s all-time leading goal scorer with 51 international goals to his credit.

“This guy is the leading scorer in Ghana. If you like the all-time leading goal scorer in the Ghana national team. He has 51 goals to his credit. You can’t downplay such a striker.”

She further commented on the commitment of Gyan to the Black Stars team recounting his attitude toward the issue of captaincy prior to the 2019 AFCON tournament. 

Adding that, “when the issue of captaincy came up, Gyan made it clear he wasn’t going to be a part of the team. It took the intervention of the President of the republic to speak to technical team members for him to rescind his decision.”

This attitude, she said, led to divisiveness in the camp of the Black Stars during the tournament. According to her, Asamoah Gyan has lost his place in the Black Stars, a position he lost since the 2019 AFCON tournament staged in Egypt.

“Asamoah Gyan has lost his place in the Black Stars and it happened in Egypt … I was in Egypt myself and I can tell you categorically that the team was divided. They had camps in that team and you wouldn’t expect that a player of Asamoah Gyan’s stature would have allowed such to happen but it did. But I am telling you that for me, if Asamoah Gyan should go to the world cup, what happened in Egypt might repeat itself. You will have these camps and blocs.”

The public pronouncement of Gyan’s decision was met with varied comments. While some questioned his fitness level and the intent of his desire to join the team, others thought it would be an opportune moment for him to ‘avenge’ the Black Stars’ loss to Uruguay at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. 

If he makes the 26-man squad, Asamoah Gyan will be the oldest Ghanaian player in camp during the FIFA 2022 World Cup scheduled to take place in Qatar.
