Ghana senior national side team captain, Asamoah Gyan, has broken silence and responded to his critics who've said that the Black Stars would fair better under the captaincy of another footballer.
Following Ghana's scandalous participation in the 2014 World Cup, a commission led by Justive Senyoh Dzamefe setup to investigate why Ghana didn't do well in the tournament among its findings found that Asamoah Gyan's lack of leadership was a contributing factor.
Furthermore, comments from former team member, Prince, along with popular broadcast journalist, Nana Aba Anamoah, have all been calling for a change in the teams leaders, particularly the skipper of the senior national team.
“I feel things should have been done accordingly...Even if Essien had retired, Sulley Muntari was also a senior player and could have become captain of the team.” Said Prince Tagoe
But speaking to Accra-based Okay FM, Asamoah Gyan stated that he was not treated fairly by the inquiry. As far as Prince Tagoe's comments, the Black Stars skipper said it was his opinion.
