Inter Milan defender Kwadwo Asamoah has been named as the new Black Stars assistant captain.
Asamoah, 30, usually takes the mantle from Andre Ayew who has been elevated by mentor Kwesi Appiah to the standing of major captain.
The former Juventus participant manufactured his Black Stars debut in 2008 and played a essential role as Ghana capable for the 2010 Globe Cup in South Africa.
The versatile player took a break from the Black Stars just after the 2014 World Cup but a short while ago made himself out there for selection again.
He has made 70 Black Stars appearances scoring four aims.
