Brother of Asamoah Gyan, Baffour Gyan has backed the player’s decision to retire from the National team after he was “stripped” off his captaincy role.
Gyan on Monday announced an unexpected retirement from the Black Stars.
The striker in his announcement expressed bitterness and cited a decision made by head Coach Kwesi Appiah to hand his duties as a captain to another person.
This has since raised lots of questions in the Ghanaian public who look worried about the situation wih just a month to go for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Baffour Gyan, a former Ghana international is in support of his brother’s decision to quit the national team.
“If you make someone a general captain it means you don’t need his services any longer. I support my brother in all his decisions,” he said on Asempa FM.
“I don’t understand why we always have issues with captaincy.
“We are supposed to support anyone who is given the arm band,” Baffour noted.
Meanwhile Andre Ayew who has been serving as the deputy captain for the team is expected to be confirmed the substantive skipper for the Black Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.
