Former Ghana International Bernard Don Bortey is in all praise for celebrated Black Stars attacker Asamoah Gyan.
Gyan could bring his International career to an end after playing in what looked like his final Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt.
The attacker who was reassigned as Black Stars “General Captain” remains the most capped Ghanaian player and also holds the record as the highest scoring Black Stars player with 52 goals to his credit.
Don Bortey, a former playmate of Gyan has eulogized the 33-year-old for his generous and outstanding contribution to Ghana.
“I liked Asamoah Gyan when he came to the Black Stars so I wanted him to be my roommate. From there we became very close and he supported me when I did an advert for Robbiton. We shared the money together,” he said on the Summer Show.
“So anytime Asamoah Gyan comes to Ghana he gives me something, even when he is not in the team he tried to give it to any member of the team to give to me.
“I can never say anything bad about Asamoah and anytime I hear people saying things bad about him I become sad because I feel they don’t really know him.
“And I think Asamoah Gyan has done a lot for Ghana we have to get a statue for him.”
Bernard Don Bortey and Asamoah Gyan played together in the Black Stars team between 2003 and 2005.
