Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has officially announced his retirement from professional football, bringing an end to his illustrious 20-year career.

Gyan made his debut as a teenager back in 2003 and has now decided to hang up his boots in 2023, having amassed an impressive tally of over 390 goals throughout his career.

He made the announcement while speaking at The 30th Afreximbank Annual Meetings at the Accra International Conference Centre on Tuesday evening.

He said, “I want to take this great opportunity, a stage that is difficult in every footballer’s career, a moment all footballers do not wish, but when nature dawns, that thin voice will keep echoing into the ears… it is time… that voice has been clear in my ears, and I have succumbed to it, it is time. It is time to hand the jersey and boots in glory as I officially retire from active football.”
