Ghanaian international Asamoah Gyan has opened up on his relationship with former Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah, describing it as strange.
The pair fell out in the warm-up to the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt where the ex-Black Stars coach stripped Gyan off the captaincy, announcing Andre Ayew as the new skipper.
The decision did not go down well with the former Sunderland forward who announced his retirement from international football only for Ghana President Nana Akuffo Addo to intervene.
Asamoah Gyan told TV3 Ghana;
“Honestly I think the relationship is a bit broken because of what happened.
“I don’t know whether it is his conscience or it is my conscience but the relationship between me and him is a bit wide because I haven’t spoken to him in a while-which is a bit strange.”
The 34-year-old, however, stressed he holds nothing against the former Ghana international.
“Normally we do talk, but we haven’t spoken in a while, but it’s cool. Any time I see him we will have our normal chat and our normal jokes and everything.”
Having been sacked in 2014, Kwesi Appiah was later appointed head coach in 2017 prior to Ghana’s qualification games for the 2018 World Cup where the West African country failed to earn a ticket.
He later led Ghana to the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) where the team was knocked out in the Round of 16 by Tunisia.
Gyan was limited to a substitute role due to loss of form and injuries.
