‘I still feel young to play’ – Asamoah Gyan
Ghana’s all time top scorer Asamoah Gyan says he still feel young to play football despite calls for him to end his envying Football career.
The 39-year-old insist he’s in a good shape and feels he’s still got something in him and believes he can still play though he’s without a club for sometime now.
Despite being inactive, Gyan says he is yet to decide on announcing his retirement citing his capabilities to continue playing against popular opinions of being old and weak.
“If you love doing something it’s difficult to stop so I’m still behind the scenes contemplating on either continuing to play or ending it,” he told Asempa FM.
“I still feel young but Ghanaians always want to see you quit when you stay long in the game.”
” It is for this reason that certain players like Richard Kingson and co retired unwillingly and that is what really cost us.
“That is when you see people missing the quality in you and wished you were still in the team. Meanwhile, you were least appreciated when you were active.
“But I am not really moved because people tend to override on your popularity to make a name with such comments.”
He’s the top African scorer at the World Cup with six goals in three tournaments between 2006 and 2014.
The former Stade de Rennes and Sunderland forward is the all-time top scorer for Ghana with 51 goals in 109 appearances.
