‘Put your support behind Gyan’- Appiah

Black Stars Coach, Kwesi Appiah says it is important for the nation to throw her support behind Asamoah Gyan who has just returned from his self-imposed exile.

Gyan who put his international career on hold following criticism after the Stars fourth placing at the African Cup of Nations earlier this year announced his return to the team on Wednesday, a move Coach Appiah regards as timely.

The Coach told GNA Sports in an exclusive interview that “Asamoah is a very great player and it was unfortunate that he went off the team for some time.

“As he said, he wanted to rebuild his confidence and it is important that now that he is back, all Ghanaian should put their support behind him.

“No matter what he has done, we need to put everything behind us and give him the full support needed. At the end of the day, he has come to kill himself for Ghana.”

Gyan, 26, decided to take a break following a not too impressive outing at the tournament where he missed a penalty at the semi final meeting against eventual winners, Chipolopolo of Zambia.

The six-month break saw the Al Ain player miss the Black Stars World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zambia.

His return means he will be part of the team that plays the Flames of Malawi in the final African Cup of Nations qualifier mid September. GNA
