Two-time AFCON winning coach, Herve Renard has summed up why Africa’s leading goal scorer in the history of the FIFA World Cup [Asamoah Gyan] could not reach his topmost level.

According to the French trainer in an interview with Juliet Bawuah explained that laziness is the root cause of why the former Black Stars striker failed to reach his greater height in football.

“The quality of Asamoah Gyan was amazing. I was always impressed with his timing of headers.

“He was a very good goal scorer, a fantastic player, an amazing player.”

“But I have something to tell him. He was supposed to have a better career, but he was lazy.”

“In training, he was lazy. He only likes games.

“Simply he was the most important player but I know him and he didn’t like the training, he only likes the competition, the games.”

Gyan [34] is the all-time leading goalscorer of the Ghana national team, with 51 goals.

Herve Renard was Ghana’s physical trainer at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.
