Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan, has announced his retirement from the team with 32 days to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The player made the announcement in a Twitter post just 24 hours after he being named in the provisional team for the Afcon tournament.
“Upon consultation with my family and team, and as an active footballer and captain of the National 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 recuse myself from the tournament. I also wish to retire from the national team permanently; not pretending my presence would not fuel the purported undermining the country has seen under my captaincy,” he wrote.
