The General Captain of the Ghana national football team, the Black Stars, has revealed that his name, Asamoah Gyan, has been a saviour to many Ghanaians, especially those living abroad.

Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM about when he intends calling it quits with the national team, Gyan said: “The national team has played a huge role in my career; not a small role at all”.

“That is why I go all out for the country during tournaments despite any agenda against me.

“I play for the country, not my detractors because even though I am not God, the name Asamoah Gyan has saved a lot of people abroad”, he said.

Citing one such example to buttress his point, Mr Gyan narrated: “I remember my days at Sunderland; the owner of a company in London, who is from Sunderland, spared his Ghanaian employees from losing their jobs in a retrenchment exercise just because of me.

“So, that name [Asamoah Gyan] has saved a lot of people”, he added.
