Vice Chairman of the Greater Accra Coaches, Osman Seidu, says including Asamoah Gyan in the Black Stars squad for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) can affect our chances of winning the continental show piece.

In an interview with Nathaniel Attoh on the Joy Sports Link show on Saturday, Veteran Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and FIFA World Cup commentator, Kwabena Yeboah, said he would want to see ex-Ghana Captain, Asamoah Gyan, at the next AFCON tournament in Cameroon.

However, according to the Greater Accra’s Coaches Vice Chairman, the inclusion of Gyan won’t help the Black Stars at the AFCON.

“If you look at the current captain who is Dede Ayew and then his relationship with Asamoah Gyan, I mean let’s be clear about this, there’s been some friction in when Asamoah Gyan was playing, ” he said.

“Now Dede Ayew is leading and Asamoah Gyan has to come and the team and also support in a different way, how are these two going to gel because it can make or mar our effort in winning the next African Cup of nations. So these are dimensions that we look and then conclude whether we want Asamoah Gyan in the team or not” he concluded.

The AFCON tournament is scheduled to take place next year January in Cameroon.
