Senegal legend, El Hadji Diouf, has called on the leadership of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] to integrate Asamoah Gyan into the Black Stars set-up.
Gyan, 36, has been out of the national team after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Egypt.
However, Diouf, who is part of the legends invited for Gyan’s book launch appealed on his arrival in the country.
Asked about Senegal’s 2021 AFCON victory, Diouf was adamant that the presence of former players was key:
“Senegal has Aliou Cisse, Lamine Diatta, Toni Sylva, and myself around the team. You can see the results of that in some of our players, Mendy is great because of Tony Sylva not because of Chelsea, he has changed teams but he has always been Senegalese,” he said.
He then added that Gyan’s leadership could be the missing factor to get the Black Stars their first AFCON trophy since 1982:
“The FA needs people like him around the boys to win trophies, You need a player who has scored all these goals for the national team to talk to the boys, if he is in Qatar I will invite him to come and talk to our boys.”
Asamoah Gyan’s autobiography, “Le-Gyan-dary” come on today at the Kempiski Hotel in Accra.
