Deposed skipper of the countrywide football group, the Black Star, has been urged to decline a new placement produced for him within just the workforce he has led for 7 yrs.
Veteran journalist Kweku Baako Jnr has described the submit of ‘General Captain’ as “an animal of no value” and has shared an expectation that the 2010 BBC African Footballer would reject the placement.
Now the choice to name Ghana’s most deadly aim scorer as a Standard Captain has been fulfilled with derision from huge sections of social media.
Mentor Kwesi Appiah gave him the post after stripping Gyan of the captaincy, handing it about to previous U-20 Environment Cup winner, 29-calendar year previous Dede Ayew.
The General Captaincy situation was very first developed for John Mensah when Asamoah Gyan was set to just take about from Black Stars defender John Mensah.
But persisting with the place in 2019 has been noticed as an try to placate Gyan immediately after he declared pulling out of the squad as the conclusion to strip him of the captaincy loomed. Asamoah Gyan once carved his impression on the captain’s band.
“Asamoah Gyan really should have rejected it….I be expecting him to reject it,” Baako mentioned on JoyNews assessment display Newsfile Saturday.
The controversy around captaincy has solid a shadow over Ghana’s readiness to gain the 2019 African Cup of Nations(AFCON) in Egypt, breaking a 37-12 months jinx.

He blamed Asamoah Gyan for ‘sowing the seed for the mess’, setting off an “avoidable dramatization” with his announcement pulling out of the squad.
It took the intervention by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, to get Gyan to rescind his choice. The President’s motion adds to the record of presidential interventions in the administration of the Black Stars.
Kweku Baako, nonetheless, indicated he would he wished the President experienced not intervened and expressed fears Nana Akufo-Addo’s involvement could develop issues.
