Asamoah Gyan not retired, eyes Black Stars spot at AFCON 2021

Veteran Ghana striker, Asamoah Gyan is not looking to bow out of the game just yet, despite a frustrating 20/21 season.

Back home in the Ghana Premier League after 17 years abroad, the 35-year-old endured a difficult time with Legon Cities, battling with injuries for the most time of the campaign as the club fought relegation.

He made just six appearances for the Accra-based club and failed to find the back of the net, heightening calls for a retirement from the beautiful game.

“I have not retired from football,” Gyan told Kessben FM .

“There were some injuries last season, but I am not done playing football. I can wake up one day and announce my retirement from football but at the moment, I am active.

“People will criticise me but I am only hoping to get back to my normal form and weight but if I am not able to regain my form, then I will call it off. But at the moment, I am working on myself to lose my weight.

“I returned to Legon Cities and you could clearly see that things did not go as planned because I have putting on weight but I am giving myself another season and I trust I will be back to my form. And if I am on my form, I don’t think I will be overlooked. But for retirement, not now.”

It is unclear where Gyan will be playing club football in the 2021-22 term after seeing out his season-long deal with Legon, whom he joined at the last hour after being heavily linked to 23-time Ghana Premier League champions Asante Kotoko.

The striker, Ghana’s most capped player and all-time top scorer, returned home after a spell with Indian Super League side NorthEast United.
