Asamoah Gyan’s business manager Samuel Anim Addo says announcing Andre Ayew as captain of the senior national team, Black Stars is the best decision taken by new coach CK Akonnor.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) in an official communication via their website announced that Swansea City forward Andre Ayew has been finally named substantive captain of the Black Stars.

Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and Richard Ofori who plays for Maritzburg United in South Africa will deputize as first and second assistant skippers respectively.

Speaking to Nhyira Power Sports in reaction to the changes from the Black Stars Technical team that was silent on Asamoah Gyan and his general captaincy role handed him before the 2019 Africa Nations Cup, Anim Addo revealed the Gyan camp were not enthused with such a portfolio.

“Asamoah Gyan has held successful meetings with the Black Stars Management Committee.

“The Gyan camp has never liked the idea of the ‘General Captain’.

“There was no way he was going the wear the armband when he isn’t the captain anymore.

“Due to his love for Ghana, he returned to play for the team on the request of the President and other top officials even when he announced his retirement,” Anim Addo informed Nhyira FM.

The 34-year-old considers himself as a mentor for the young players coming into the national team and not in a hurry to call it quit from the national team, according to the GFA Executive Council member.

“Gyan believes he is a role model for most of the players regardless his role in the national team. At any point in time, he is willing to give his brotherly support to any leader present and is only interested in serving Ghana in any capacity. This is the best decision taken by CK Akonnor,” he added.

The former Sunderland and Al Ain striker captained the Black Stars from 2013 to 2019 before coach Kwasi Appiah stripped him of the armband and gave it to Andre Ayew.

US 2020: Joe Biden releases his tax returns hours before presidential debate

Biden’s tax release comes days after a bombshell report from The New York Times showed Trump paid just $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017.

The shocking figure reportedly paid by Trump was possible due to reported financial losses, a damaging blow to the successful ‘billionaire businessman’ image he has projected throughout his career.

Biden’s deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said on Tuesday that they released the presidential candidate’s financial information to be transparent.

“This is a historic level of transparency and it will give the American people faith once again that their leaders will look out for them and not their own bottom line,” she said.

Trump has never released his tax returns claiming he can’t release them since he is being audited by the IRS.

On Monday he also denied the New York Times report that said he paid only $750 as tax in 2016 and 2017.

When asked about the report at the White House, Trump simply said: “I paid tax.”
“I’ve paid a lot, and I’ve paid a lot of state income taxes, too,”.
