I deserve to be respected and valued – Asamoah Gyan

Kayserispor striker Asamoah Gyan says he deserves some respect from Ghanaians taking his achievements for the Black Stars into consideration.

Gyan, who is Ghana’s all-time top scorer with an impressive record of 51 goals from 105 games, has been faced with opprobrium since making his debut for the team in 2003.

The 32-year-old was recently chastised after earning a recall back into the team for the double-header 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone.

Several pundits believe the former Sunderland hitman did not deserve the call-up after struggling to churn out regular playing time at club level.

“I deserve some respect for what I have done for the national team. Any player outside who has my kind of record will be held shoulder high but I don’t get that treatment here in Ghana and it’s sad,” Gyan told Zylofon FM.

Gyan has featured in every AFCON for Ghana since 2008.
