“Only hard work can win us the AFCON, forget prophecies”- Asamoah Gyan

Black Stars General Captain, Asamoah Gyan, has emphasized the need for the Black Stars players to be united and work hard for each other if the team is to win the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Ghana has not won the trophy since 1982 and Gyan himself has been under scrutiny after his decision to retire over captaincy dispute before making a u-turn just days later.

But the former Udinese and Sunderland man recognizes the need for the team to stay united and not pay attention to any prophesies, and says the only way to win the AFCON is to work hard.

24 countries have the chance to win but it depends on team work in camp, this is not a one man sport like boxing but rather football is about unity,

Gyan told Oyerepa FM.

When going to tournaments like this I recuse myself from predicting because it’s easier said than done, anyone can say Ghana will lift the trophy, pastors, religious leaders will say theirs but at the end of the day, if we don’t put in any effort, that’s when we are going to laugh at the wrong side of our mouth.

That’s why am preaching unity, team work. Should we be united and get everything right, I’m sure we can clinch the trophy for Ghana.
