Asamoah Gyan

Gyan aims for longer Ghana stay



Asamoah Gyan is only 31 and, despite persistent injury niggles in recent years, looks forward to more caps for Ghana.

It's unusual for fans to begin retiring players once they round the bend of 30 years, but the Ghana skipper has no intention of hanging his boots soon. Having been a fixture of the team for the better part of 13 years, the UAE-based star argues out his case. “I still have more time to play, I am still active and got energy, though it is not like before, but I can still play," Gyan said.

“As I said there is more time, I am just hoping for good health and injury free that will be the only thing that can help me to last in the game for long.”

The striker's place in African and Ghana football history is assured, with a slew of scoring records in international competitions ensuring that he will not be forgotten soon.
