Asamoah Gyan wants to participate in the World Cup, but according to Charles Taylor, a former player for Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, any decent coach will overlook him right now.
In advance of the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar, Gyan said in an interview with the BBC last week that he is aiming to rejoin the Black Stars team.
Since his comments, a number of football authorities, ex-teammates, and supporters have expressed their worries, with Taylor being the most recent.
The former Ghanaian international claims that no result-driven coach will think about calling up Gyan or the World Cup. “We maintain both match and routine fitness. Even those who are hurt and come back have trouble getting going, according to Taylor.
We are not discussing the past; rather, we are examining recent performance. He has made his contribution to the nation. Gyan would travel for free to the World Cup if he is in top shape, but we should find out why he is training.
Any qualified coach, in my opinion, would not consider this. We cannot accept a player who does not represent any team”. Gyan, 36, has 51 goals to his name for the Black Stars, six of which came at the World Cup.
