I have a lot to offer and I am not ready to retire – Asamoah Gyan

Ex-Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan has insisted that he has a lot to offer in football reiterating that he has not resigned despite being clubless.

Gyan, a former Sunderland and Stade Rennais forward has not featured for the Black Stars since playing at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, where the team exited from the Round of 16.

The country’s all-time leading goal scorer last played for Ghana Premier League side, Legon Cities, where he ended the season without a goal during the 2019/20 season.

Having by blighted by injuries and weight issues in recent years, the striker hasn’t played active football for several months now.

Speaking as a pundit on SuperSport TV, Gyan said he hasn’t retired, but admitted that he needs to work on his weight to return to active football.

“I haven’t retired yet. If I need to play, I have to shed some weight and be active before [that], and train week in week out and I will be good.

“Body-wise, I still feel young at heart, I’ve still got a lot to offer. The mind is there, everything is alright, but physically I don’t think I am ready for now. I need to work on my body,” he added.

Gyan is currently serving as a football expert for SuperSport for the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Cameroon.
