I didn’t enjoy my black stars captaincy – Asamoah Gyan

Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan also known as Baby Jet has made a shocking revelation that he did not enjoy captaining the senior national team, the Black Stars of Ghana during his 7 years tenure.

According to Baby Jet, unlike his previous successors who enjoyed their captaincy, it was different in his case.

Gyan disclosed some journalists do not cover the positive things he is doing including the charity projects but always create controversy by publishing negative stories about him because he refused to pay a fee they usually call “soli”.

“I keep asking myself why is it that during my time I didn’t enjoy the captaincy,” he questioned.

“7 years of my captaincy I didn’t enjoy it because of journalists.”

“I will blame journalists because they are always creating issues by setting the agenda when there is none”, he lamented.

Speaking in an interview, the prolific attacker said “I wasn’t allowed to enjoy my captaincy one bit. I needed coach Kwesi Appiah the most in the latter part of my career but he let me down.”

He stressed on his unstoppable love for the national team.

The former Kayserispor attacker said even scoring his 50th goal for the Black Stars journalists made an uproar out of it because his photo was on the armband when he should rather be celebrated for achieving historic attainment.

“I give my all when I’m playing for the national team because it has played a huge role in my career. I can never forget what the national jersey has done for me”, he stated.

He added that “in terms of play, I don’t think I was in the coach’s plan for this AFCON”.

“I know the coach Kwesi Appiah likes me as a human being and I like him as well but that’s how I felt during the tournament.”

Gyan has however availed himself for selection despite retiring briefly from the national team.

“As at now I’m still ready for a call up to the national team”, he explained.

Gyan believes the Black Stars has a future with the current crop of talents.

“The Black Stars have a future with this crop of players, I don’t doubt the qualities of any player”.

The former Sunderland striker succeeded defender John Mensah as the skipper of the Black Stars in 2013 under Kwesi Appiah’s first reign as coach of the side but was stripped of the captaincy a month to the AFCON 2019.
