Asamoah Gyan, says that he does not receive the respect he deserves from Ghanaians.
As a result, Gyan believes that despite his successes in the country of Ghana, he is still not treated with the respect that he deserves by the general public.
Gyan told Kessben FM that the offer from the Confederation of African Football to have him as one of the legends that graced the draw for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations astonished him.
Gyan claims that the accolade bestowed on him demonstrates how highly he is valued throughout the continent, a feeling he does not share with Ghanaians.
“It gives me great pleasure to be a member of the luminaries who will be running this draw. I was startled, but not too astonished, given where I had progressed in my football career. I’m not well-liked in Ghana, but I’m well-liked elsewhere. “
“I haven’t given up football. Despite several injuries last season, I intend to continue playing football. I could wake up one day and announce my retirement from football, but for the time being, I am active, “the country’s all-time leading goalscorer told Kessben FM in Kumasi.
Asamoah Gyan has 51 goals for Ghana’s Black Stars.
