Asamoah Gyan can be Black Stars striker’s coach for Qatar World Cup – Agyemang Badu

Ghanaian midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has waded into the debate of whether Asamoah Gyan should be added to the Black Stars squad for the Qatar World Cup.

Gyan, who is without a club is bidding to make a shock return to the international fold as he eyes a spot in Ghana’s squad for the global showpiece.

The 36-year-old last played for the Black Stars in the 2019 AFCON tournament in Egypt and last featured actively in the 2020/21 season for Ghana Premier League side, Legon Cities where he made just five appearances and failed to score.

According to Agyemang-Badu, Gyan should be part of the Black Stars set-up as a striker coach to help the attacking players.

“What we can offer him is for him to be there to help with the striking side as the striker’s coach but for the field of play, he can never be ready for the World Cup,” he told Joy Sports.

Gyan is the all-time leading goalscorer of Ghana, with 51 goals. With 6 goals, Gyan is the top African goalscorer in the history of the World Cup.
