Give Asamoah Gyan befitting send-off when he retires – Sam Johnson to GFA

Former Black Stars midfielder, Sam Johnson says it will be good for the leadership of the Ghana Football Association to organise a befitting send off event for former General Captain Asamoah Gyan when he finally retires from the team.

Speaking on Kumasi-based Hello FM on Tuesday, Sam Johnson said: “It would be good for them to organise a testimonial match for Gyan, but I don’t think they will do it. It’s never in their minds to organise such ceremonies for our players”.

“I hope they’ll listen and find something to do. Have you seen them organised such programmes for the great players who played for Ghana before our era? It is never in their minds but it would have been a nice thing to do,” he added.
Gyan is Ghana’s all time top scorer in international competitions. At age 17, Asamoah Gyan scored his debut goal against Somalia in 2003 and a crucial one against Congo, all in WC qualifiers.


He has scored 51 goals for Ghana, six being World Cup goals and eight AFCON goals.

For the records, Asamoah Gyan is the first Ghanaian player to score a fasted World Cup goal in 68 seconds in 2006 in Germany. He is also the first Ghanaian player to score at Wembley.
