Former Ghana defender, Sam ‘Foyoo’ Johnson, says the current General Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, is the greatest player the senior national side has every had.
According to him, Gyan has done things no player in Ghana has ever done.
Speaking in an interview on Happy FM’s ‘Anopa Bosuo Sports’ with Ohene Brenya Bampoe, Foyoo said “Gyan is the greatest player of all time. He has done everything than everyone who has played for the black stars. When it comes to goal scoring, he is better than everyone, He is the only player in Africa who has more goals in World cup.”
He added that in times when things are difficult for the Stars, Asamoah Gyan comes out as the Messiah at that time.
“Times when things are difficult for Ghana in a particular match, Gyan will come from nowhere and will make things possible,” he said.
Foyoo made these assertions after Ohene Brenya asked him who he thinks is Ghana’s greatest player of all time.
Foyoo also called on the general public to support the Black Stars in the upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt. The team will kick start their campaign against Benin on June 25 at the Ismail Sports Stadium.
