Ghanaian duo, Prince Tagoe and Asamoah Gyan have been engaged in a serious argument over who should have been the right person to captain the Black Stars.
Gyan’s captaincy has been a subject of controversy, as aside from his said unsuitability for the role, many have tagged him as a divisive figure due to a reported bad blood between himself and deputy captain Andre Ayew.
It will be recalled that Prince Tagoe, who was once a former Ghana Premier League top goalscorer insisted that the former Liberty Professionals forwards does not have the requisite to captain the senior national team.
But in an interview with Kumasi based Angel FM, Gyan has insisted that he never forced his way out to be given the captain armband.
“If we should be honest to ourselves as Ghanaians, we would realise there was a mistake somewhere because if Stephen [Appiah] was not around and [Michael] Essien had not retired, who should have been captain?” he quizzed.
“Even if Essien had retired, [Sulley] Muntari was also a senior player and could have become captain for the team.”
But in Asamoah Gyan’s assertion, he didn’t go for the captain but it was given to him by the FA on the decision that the senior players were not in good shape to lead the team.
