Ghanaian legend Asamoah Gyan retires from football

Ghana’s record goalscorer Asamoah Gyan has announced his retirement from football.

The 37-year-old fought back tears as he revealed his decision while on stage with former Ivory Coast striker Didier Drogba in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.

“It’s time to tell everybody. It’s a very, very difficult moment,” said the former striker who scored 51 goals in 109 games for his country.

Gyan later took to social media to explain why he was calling time on his 20-year career.

“It is time,” he wrote, “to hang the jersey and boots in glory as I retire officially from active football.

“A stage that is difficult in every footballer’s career, a moment all footballers do not wish but when nature dawns that this voice will keep echoing into the ears.”
