Eric Bekoe ask GFA to appoint Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan as Black Stars striker’s coach
Appoint Asamoah Gyan as Black Stars strikers’ coach – Eric Bekoe urges GFA
Former Asante Kotoko star Eric Bekoe has called for the inclusion of Asamoah Gyan in the Black Stars technical team.
The 2007/08 Ghana Premier League goal king in an interview with Angel TV clamored for the appointment of Gyan as strikers’ coach of the Black Stars.
Since the exclusion of Asamoah Gyan from the Black Stars in 2019, Ghana has struggled in scoring goals in friendlies, qualifiers and in major tournaments.
The team has experimented with several strikers including Athletic Bilbao’s forward Inaki Williams but none of them has been able to make the position his own.
However, according to Bekoe, it is about the country make good use of Asamoah Gyan who is the all-time topscorer for the national team.
“Goal scoring is being learnt. Football is scientific now and can’t be compared to previous years. To me, it will be prudent to get strikers coach in the person of Asamoah Gyan who is our all-time topscorer.
“I insist Gyan is made strikers coach of the Black Stars and God being so good, he’s got his license. He’s done it before and can help us solve our goal scoring problems” he said.
The former Sunderland striker had a lot of goals in his boots with the national team scoring in three World Cup tournaments from 2006, 2010 and 2014 to become the highest top scoring African at the tournament with six goals.
Gyan surpassed the record held by Cameroon legend Roger Milla in 2014 with his goal against Portugal at the 2014 World Cup staged in Brazil.
Gyan has played in seven Africa Cup of Nations tournaments (2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019) helping them finish in third-place in 2008 and runner-up in 2010 and 2015.
He is Ghana’s all-time topscorer with 51 goals after 109 games.
