Gyan was stripped of the captaincy before the AFCON in Egypt with Andre Ayew being handed the armband. This has led Gyan to announced his retirement from international football. After a meeting with President Nana Akufo-Addo, Gyan returned to the team taking up a “general captain” role for the tournament.

Gyan believes that although the issues over the captaincy did not affect the team’s performance at the AFCON, he felt Ayew should have rejected the captaincy given the controversy.

I wouldn’t have accepted it. There was a lot of controversy and pressure. Andre and I had a conversation, he had to explain his part.”

He’s a good guy. He had no choice but to accept it. I don’t blame him but if I were him, I wouldn’t have.” Gyan told Daniel Dadzie on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM.

‘We are teammates, not friends’

Gyan reveals that he and Andre are not rivals. He added that sometimes they laugh at reports of tension between them.

“We laugh about these stories in camp. We’ve never fought. Andre is my teammate but it doesn’t mean we are friends. When we are in camp, we might hang out together. Outside the camp, we have our own friends and family. But there’s no rivalry, the love is still there.”

Despite being the nation’s all-time leading scorer, the player was used sparingly, featuring just twice from the bench.

A number of people have spoken of double standards as Gyan was first made Black Stars captain after John Mensah was relegated to general captain.

However, Gyan rebuffed this, stating that unlike him, Mensah was not in the squad, adding that he would have rejected the offer had Mensah been selected.
