Gyan retires ahead of Africa nations cup

Ghana national team captain Asamoah Gyan on Monday announced his retirement from international football just weeks before the Africa Nations Cup. Gyan said his decision had been taken as a way to protest a plan by coach Kwesi Appiah to deny him the opportunity of captaining the Black Stars in next month’s Africa Nations Cup in Egypt. “Upon consultation with my family and team... if the decision of the coach is to give captaincy of the tournament to another player while I am named in the team for the tournament, I wish to excuse myself from the tournament,” the 33-year-old player said in a statement. “I also wish to retire from the national team permanently,” added the Kayserispor striker.
