Notwithstanding the gaiety of emotions that occupied the media stretch, in expectation that Asamoah Gyan could make an exciting come back to the Black Stars in headway of the World Cup, slated to take place in Qatar, it appears all optimistic realizations have to this effect been shattered, since the iconic football legend, precluded himself from the Black Stars lineup.
At the point of tabling a sit-down talk with pro telecaster and sports media personnel, Fiifi Banson, in the studios of GHOne, Asamoah Gyan said he’s not in the right physical shape to ultimately triumph at the World Cup tournament, in order for him to elegantly climax his impeccable football career.
Explaining his position on whether he opted to impact the last determination of the team depending on the rigorous preparation he began to get in shape as witnessed in different videos shared on the web, Asamoah Gyan stated that;
“The World Cup is every footballer’s dream. If I’m fit to play active football and I’m invited to play for the national team, why not. It’s not like 15 years ago when I was young and competitive and could argue to be in the starting line-up.”
“This is a different thing together. Right now people want you to go in and show your experience. The thing is you just have to be fit and be ready for competitive football,” he delved in further.
Ending his words of clarification, Asamoah Gyan continued on by saying, “If I’m fit and invited into the national team, why not? Every player will embrace such an opportunity. This is the case where I’m not ready now. If I’m not ready but the FA and staff feel they need me now, I will be available. That one is up to them.”
