Kayserispor and Ghana forward Asamoah Gyan has announced his retirement from international football with the Africa Cup of Nations fast approaching.

Ghana’s all-time leading scorer took the decision after he was told he will no longer be the national team captain at the AFCON by Coach Kwesi Appiah.

The 33-year-old expressed disappointment in the Black stars coach’s decision and retired from the national team on Monday.

”If the decision of the coach is to give captaincy of the tournament to another player while I am named in the team for the tournament, I wish to rescue myself from the tournament,”

”I also wish to retire from the national team permanently, not pretending my presence would not fuel the purported undermining the country has seen under my captaincy.’’ He stated in a press statement.

Gyan represented Ghana at three FIFA World Cups and is currently Africa’s leading goalscorer with six goals in the history of the World Cup.

He made his international debut at the age of 17 and went on to become Ghana’s all-time leading scorer with 51 goals with over 106 caps for the Black Stars.
