Asamoah Gyan Eyes Black Stars’ Comeback

Asamoah Gyan is hoping to force his way into Ghana national team reckoning with the 2022 World Cup around the corner.

The 36-year-old former Black Stars captain has been without the club since leaving Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities in November 2021 due to injury.

Gyan now says it  has been difficult for him to stay out of the Black Stars adding that he is working hard on his fitness levels.

“I’ve been out for almost two years now due to injuries but I just need to get my body back in shape. It’s an eight-week programme and according to my physical instructor I’m improving faster than he thought,” he said.

“Then I must see how my body reacts to playing competitive football.

Before his move back to Ghana, the striker was turning for Indian Super League side North East United with whom he parted ways in January 2020 after picking up an injury.

Gyan made more than 100 appearances for the Black Stars and played in three World Cups. He also featured in seven editions of the Africa Cup of Nations.

He scored 51 goals in 106 appearances for the West African country and made history when he became the first ever Ghanaian to score at a FIFA World Cup.
