Due to his lack of game time at Kayserispor, the Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah had no option than to leave him out of his 18-man squad for next month’s Africa Cup of Nation’s qualifier against Kenya.

However, many football pundits have been calling on the former Sunderland goal poacherto hang his boots due to his persistence injury problem.

According to Samuel Addo, though he cannot affirm his statement, there is a possibility that his client will call time on his illustrious career after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

“It is likely, with these kinds of things he is the best man affirm it, and so I can’t say it on his behalf, but it’s likely he will call it a day. It’s likely, it’s a possibility.”

Gyan has capped 106 times for Ghana, scoring 51 goals in the process.
