GFA to persuade Gyan for the last time to return

Postby Turbo Turbulance » Fri Jul 06, 2012 8:12 pm

The Ghana Football Association will hold showdown talks with Asamoah Gyan over his return to the national team ahead of the 2013 Afcon qualifier against Malawi.

The 26-year-old striker called temporal time on his international career in the aftermath of the country’s failure to clinch the 2012 African Cup of Nations held in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

He became public enemy number one and received harsh criticisms from soccer fans following his semi-final miss at the continental showpiece against eventual winners Zambia.

He was made the scapegoat and suffered vitriolic abuse on social networking site twitter from Ghana fans who held him solely responsible for their team’s shock 1-0 demise.

Some made various insignia including an obituary on facebook to mock the impressive attacker while others threatened the lives of his family – a situation which prompted his decision to take an indefinite break from international duties.

But after the Black Stars suffered two successive defeats at the hands of the African Champions in a 2014 World Cup qualifier last month, there have been growing calls for sweeping changes to be made to the squad ahead of the next phase of the qualifiers.

Many have craved for the return of the man who netted an incredible 22 goals during his loan spell in the Middle East last term.

There are many others who also believe Gyan’s return will boost the chances of the West African powerhouse to secure a third successive appearance at the World Cup.

The former Rennes man is considered a leading figure in the Ghana camp and expected to play an influential role in the country’s quest to qualify for the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa and crucially the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Football Authorities in the West African country have reportedly tried unsuccessful in the past to persuade him to return to the national team insisting he was still psychologically unfit.

But reports in the local media are claiming on Friday the former Liberty Professionals man is likely to return to the team in September.

“The FA will meet with Asamoah Gyan to discuss his return,” a source at the FA is quoted by 90 Minutes newspaper

‘We are hoping to persuade him for the last time to come back into the team.”

Gyan’s return will be timely for the Black Stars ahead of the first leg of the 2013 African Nations Cup qualifier against the Flames on home soil.

It is time they came out and took a stand. If they are not going to come play for us again, they should say it once and for all instead of making themselves some kind of Apakyes who can come back to the Stars anytime they want. This is very disrespectful. If he is not coming back, he should make it be known to us, period.

Don't we call players anytime we want? What is wrong with them choosing to play for us, any time they want?

Ultimatums and negotiating in public does not seem to work well in these circumstances. Abeg with all the smarts and gumption in the organziation there are ways to solve this if both parties want it to be so....

We arent crying. The national team is a commitment. You commit to receive callups whenever you are called. If you no longer want to be part of it, then you are excluded completely. Those players who arent called up still retain the option to be called up...aka they are on "standby." Gyan, KPB, Essien refuse to be on standby and should be treated as such.

Yes, GFA entourage with their per diem and perks; meanwhile a former Blackstar captain is needing assistance with medical bills.

I just don't get it but is it only me that is tired of us begging players to return to the national team. We see no shame in begging whther its to receive foreign aid from the West, getting KPB, Balotelli, whoever or whatever to commit to the nation, Ghanaians beg with their chests held up high. Why? I mean if a player decides to call it quits let it be. This is another reason why its always difficult to transition, break in younger talent into the squad b'cos we tend to over use our veteran players.

This is a case where as far as I know Gyan has stated unequivocally that he will return to the BS at a time when he feels ready. He is not there yet so just let it be instead of manipulating him and then when he disappoints we will be the first to rain all sorts of insults on him. I mean we have other strikers dieing to get a chance to prove their worth, Emmanuel Clottey, Baffour, Dominic Oduro, Toure, Yiadom and others who just want a chance. Why not give them a real chance to see what they can offer instead of chasing a player whose heart is no longer in the game other than to fill up his bank account.

People believe it or not Gyan is now a certified businessman. He has little or no interest in soccer. He is just biding his time to build up his wealth. Thats it. Plus the guy is in decline mode anyway. Look at those wrinkles on his forehead and the number of injuries he picks up in such a short span. He is much slower now too. You think he doesn't know this? Thats why he picked up Al Ain b'cos he new he couldn't hack it long term in a competitive league like the EPL. He is smart. He wanted to play it safe by maintaining his worth at a club where the physical demands would be less yet he could still maximize his earnings. Lets invest in younger, hungrier players. We will have to do this transition sooner rather than later so lets get on with it.
