Fearsome Ghanaian striker – Asamoah Gyan has been enjoying headlines since he signed for Legon Cities Football Club a week ago.

The highest African goalscorer [6] in the history of the FIFA World Cup had an interview with BBC Sport Africa yesterday where he revealed why he joined the Ghana Premier League side while adding that playing for Legon Cities FC could propel his return to the Black Stars.

According to Gyan [34], the most important thing for him now is to get fit first.

“Right now I need to get fit and start scoring goals,” he said.

The former Sunderland striker believes that having a good season with Legon Cities will naturally pave way for his return into the Black Stars squad for future assignments.

“I have to do well in the league first and that is what matters to me.

“I have to start playing and enjoying my football and it will happen [getting Black Stars call up] naturally if it is meant to be.”

The ‘Baby Jet,’ as he is affectionately called added that he’s not about to retire as people think:

“Somebody might say he is about to retire or something, but I am not listening to that and I am just focusing on my playing career.

Gyan made his international debut at age 17 on November 19, 2003, coming on to replace Isaac Boakye and scoring against Somalia has represented Ghana at three FIFA World Cups – Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, and Brazil 2014.

Asamoah Gyan, otherwise known as the Baby Jet has also represented Ghana at eight AFCON tournaments – 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019.
