Yesterday Ghanaian football lovers got the surprise of their lives when the captain of the Blackstars Asamoah Gyan issued a press release to announce his retirement from the National team over some captaincy dispute.

In the letter, Asamoah Gyan made it clear that he won’t feel alright to be called up for the AFCON and not be given the captain band but would be asked to play with the team.

Well, after his letter there has been a mixed feeling among some football lovers with some asking the coach Kwesi Appiah to give the captaincy band to the striker and call him back to the national team.

Well, a member of the communication team for Asamoah Gyan Group of Companies, Kweku Obeng AKA Maestro has claimed that Kwesi Appiah’s decision on Asamoah Gyan was taken after his spiritual father told him that Ghana would win the AFCON with Ayew as captain.

According to the aide, on the10 May 2019, there was a publication on Ghanaweb that Coach Kwesi Appiah was going to drop Asamoah Gyan. In that report, a journalist and prophet had visited Kwesi Appiah at his private residence.

In the discussions, they had the prophet had told the coach that in a dream he saw Andre Ayew lifting the AFCON trophy. So the coach told the prophet to work on Andre Ayew. So in that discussion that is what has transpired leading him to make Gyan the General captain and Dede the main captain, he told Accra based radio station Adom FM.

“Asamoah Gyan was told that If the captain armband is given to Andre Ayew, Ghana will win the AFCON so he (Gyan) was asked to think about it and relinquish the captain to Andre Ayew”.

“He quickly made some consultations and got back to the coach and asked where the decision was coming from. According to the coach when he was given the job for the second time there was pressure on him to change him as the captain of the side but he overlooked it and now there is too much pressure so he wished Gyan will come out publicly and voluntarily hand over the armband to Andre Ayew”, Maestro explained.

“He called Gyan to come out publicly to relinquish the captain’s armband to Andre Ayew and assured him of the General captain role. The coach did not show respect to him and that was why he retired”, he concluded.

I love being at UVA…

Anthony Joshua has admitted he suffered heavily following shock defeat by Andy Ruiz.

The pair will fight once again in Saudi Arabia on December 7, and Joshua has admitted that he suffered heavily after their first fight.

He said: ‘I think I had to grieve and ask myself all the questions you would expect. People say ‘you lost’, I call it a blip.

‘I can’t wait to get in there and fight him. Every time I have fought a champion I have risen to the occasion.’

Joshua also said he might change his approach in order to be more proactive at the start of fights.

I need to start taking this approach to my fights where I’m a bit more lively. I know I’m capable of it. There is too much at stake.

‘If I go in there where I’m switched on, a time like the Ruiz fight where I am so relaxed, that might be the difference.’

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘Made Deadline Day Phone Call’ To Man Utd Target Before Transfer Collapsed

Published

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly make a desperate last-ditch phone call to Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic on deadline day.

The Croatian was linked with a switch to Old Trafford during the summer as United searched for a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

And Tuttosport report that Solskjaer made a personal effort to contact Mandzukic over a move, but failed in his approach.

The 33-year-old striker is said to have delayed his decision in order to see whether he had been included in Juve’s Champions League squad.

But he was not part of boss Maurizio Sarri’s plans, and Mandzukic – who was said to have offers on the table from PSG and Bayern, as well as United – now looks set for a move to Qatar.

Qatari side Al-Gharafa are the rumoured front runners for Mandzukic’s signature, with his agent allegedly due to land in Qatar on Monday to finalise transfer negotiations.

United failed to bring in any further attacking reinforcements following Lukaku’s departure, and have since also lost Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan as well.

The Red Devils have been linked with a move for Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson next summer, while Solskjaer ruled out a move for veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

“If he [Ibrahimovic] was 28, not 38 next month, it would be a big difference,” Solskjaer said.

“He had a great time here and he is still doing well. He was unfortunate he got his injury here when he did.

“Who knows? He knows my number.

“He never rented my house but he was looking at it, and we can speak our native language. If he is serious I’ll always talk to Zlatan.”
