Asamoah Gyan: I am not done

Ghana international Asamoah Gyan is not prepared to throw in the towel on his career just yet, with the forward confident that he still has a lot to offer the Black Stars.
The former Sunderland forward has struggled for form in the Black Stars jumper of late, with critics suggesting that it might be time that he hang up his international boots.
The 31-year-old, though, is confident that he still has a lot to offer the Ghanaian national team.
“The past three years have been very difficult, fitness-wise,” Gyan told KweseESPN.
“I try to use my experience to do a lot of things. Somebody will say, ‘he is done,’ but I am not done. It is just the circumstances.”
Injuries has played it’s cruel hand in slowing down Gyan’s progress in recent times, but the forward is confident that he has contributed sufficiently to Ghana’s cause – and hopes to continue doing just that…
“I started playing for this team in 2003 and I have made my mark.
“I have been around for a long time. When the Black Stars are playing, everyone expects me to score, which is normal,” Gyan concluded.
Considering he has scored 51 goals in 105 games for Ghana, one can forgive him – an African legend in his own true right – for showing signs of fatigue.
