Deputy General Secretary of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Alex Asante says Asamoah Gyan is the most committed player to have ever played for the Black Stars.
The former Sunderland and Udinese forward is Ghana all-time leading goalscorer with 51 goals.
Gyan is also Africa’s leading goalscorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup.
For the experienced football administrator, Gyan remains the most committed player during his tenure as the FA’s head of International Relations and Protocols.
“Asamoah Gyan for me is the most committed player I have ever seen playing for the Black Stars,” Mr Asante told Asempa FM.
“There was a game that Black Stars was supposed to play. Gyan trained with the team and after arriving at the team hotel.
“His knee suddenly got swollen and the entire players were surprised.
“Dr Baba was the team doctor at the time and he took Gyan to a room and we all could hear Gyan screaming and crying.
“The team doctors were trying to get him fit for the game and despite the pain, Gyan played the game even though he was not fit.
“Gyan’s commitment and dedication to the national team is something that makes him and for me, the most committed player ever to play for the national team,” he added.
The former skipper last played for the national team in 2019 during the AFCON in Egypt.
