Alhaji Gruzah tells Gyan: ‘Forget about playing at 2022 World Cup’

Maverick administrator, Alhaji Karim Gruzah has urged celebrated Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan to discard any dream of featuring at the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar.

The 236-year-old – who has been out of the Black Stars scheme of things since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt and as well been out of shape due to inactivity for large spells of the period till date – in an interview recently did not rule out possibilities of gatecrashing the Ghana squad for one last bow at the Mundial.

A subsequent move by Gyan to get back to fitness through rigorous exercises shared across social media platforms sparked conversations on the record Ghana scorer.

But Alhaji Gruzah, who serves on the Black Stars Management Committee, says there will be no chance for the legendary striker to return as a member of the playing body.

“Asamoah Gyan should forget about the Black Stars.

“He must not even dream of returning to the team,” Gruzah said in an interview with Graphic Sports.

With his vast experience at international level, Gruzah went ahead to suggest that he can be considered for a role in the technical team to help the strikers.

“If he wants to serve in any technical capacity or play a role as an advisor to the striking department, then that is fine. But as a player, he should forget it,” he added.

Asamoah Gyan has scored at every of Ghana’s three Fifa World Cup tournament outings.
