The Board and Management of Globacom, the African communications giant, has congratulated Asamoah Gyan, lead striker of the national team, on his elevation to the position of Captain of the Black Stars.
A letter dispatched today to the ace striker, who is also a brand ambassador of Glo Mobile Ghana, at his base in the United Arab Emirates said, ‘Since 2003 we have followed with admiration the personal flair and passion you continue to infuse into your game and the field of play everywhere you have been called to duty. However, the quality which has caught our attention the most has been your unflinching patriotism and selflessness in the service of the national team.’
The letter, signed by Patrick Awotwi, Head of Business of Glo Mobile Ghana, said, as a Brand Ambassador of Glo, Asamoah Gyan’s appointment as Captain of one of Africa’s most successful national teams is an endorsement of the vision and confidence that Glo has always reposed in him as a super sports brand.
‘Glo is therefore happy and proud to be associated with you and applauds your laudable contributions towards making the Black Stars a vibrant and united team’, the letter said.
In February 2011, Gyan was unveiled in Accra as the African telecom giant’s seventeenth Brand Ambassador, joining the network’s impressive line-up of local stars and icons, mostly musicians and movie stars.
The letter noted that over the years, the Black Stars striker has sufficiently demonstrated the qualities of a leader, worthy of taking command of the senior national squad and guiding it to ultimate victory at the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
‘While we wish you best of luck in your new role as Captain of the Black Stars, we are happy to assure you that we will stay by you and the Black Stars in this new endeavour’, the letter said.
Globacom Limited is the headline sponsor of the senior national team, the Black Stars and the Glo Premier League.
