Gyan Responds To Ghana Retirement Calls

Having not featured for Ghana since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Asamoah Gyan has responded to what he believes are calls for him to retire from international football.

Africa's Former Highest-Paid Player Completes Big-Money Move

The 34-year-old made his senior debut for his country in 2003, and has since represented the Black Stars on 107 occasions, making him the nation's most-capped star.

Gyan, who recently completed a move to Legon Cities in Ghana, has not made a single appearance for Ghana since last year, but has now insisted he has no plans of bowing out of the international stage.

"Somebody might say 'he is about to retire or something', but I am not listening to that, and I am just focusing on my playing career and then I will see what happens," he told BBC Sport Africa.

"It (a future Ghana call-up) depends on how everything goes. I am a new player with Legon Cities and I have to focus on my game.

"Right now, I need to get fit and start scoring goals, and then we will see where my future lies with the national team.

"The boys are doing well, it is a new generation right now, and I am also focusing on my personal thing and on my playing career.

"I have to do well in the league first, and that is what matters to me. I have to start playing and enjoying my football, and it will happen naturally if it is meant to be. Everything depends on me."

The former Sunderland and Shanghai SIPG star has scored 51 goals for the Black Stars to date.
