Ghana skipper Asamoah Gyan has accused the media of inventing rivalry with Andre Ayew.
The duo have long been reported in the local media to not be on good terms but Gyan insists he has no quarrel with his second in command at the national team.
“Andre is my assistant in the national team so when we’re in camp, we talk about the team’s progress.”
“Andre is my friend and there’s no friction between us,” the Ghana national team all-time leading scorer told Zylofon FM.
Both Gyan and Andre now play in the Turkish Supeer Lig for Kayserispor and Fenerbahce respectively and the former added: “when I heard about him coming to Turkey, we spoke at length on a video call.”
“I frequently speak with him [Andre Ayew]. We do have a good relationship.
“It’s the press that’s creating the rivalry between us. These things create division in the team and it must be discouraged.”
