Former Blackstars players Prince Tagoe and Asamoah Gyan has clashed on live radio over Black Stars captaincy.
Ever since Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah announced that Asamoah Gyan was the permanent captain five years ago, a lot of controversies arose with.
Many have said time without number that Gyan does not deserve to be a captain. Another school of thought also has it that he has divided the team thus causing bad blood among players.
A vivid example is his alleged beef with deputy captain, Andre Ayew.
Backcasting, Prince Tagoe, who was once a former Ghana Premier League top goalscorer insisted that the former Liberty Professionals forwards does not possess the requisite skills to captain the senior national team.
But in an interview with Kumasi based Angel FM, Gyan has insisted that he never forced his way out to be given the captain armband.
“If we should be honest to ourselves as Ghanaians, we would realise there was a mistake somewhere because if Stephen Appiah was not around and Michael Essien had not retired, who should have been captain?” he quizzed.
“Even if Essien had retired, [Sulley] Muntari was also a senior player and could have become captain for the team.”
But in Asamoah Gyan’s assertion, he didn’t go for the captain but it was given to him by the FA on the decision that the senior players were not in good shape to lead the team.
