Executive Council member Samuel Anim Addo who also doubles as the business manager of erstwhile captain Asamaoh Gyan says handing the captain's armband to Andre Ayew is the best decision taken by coach of the Black Stars C.K Akonnor.

On Sunday the Ghana Football Association (GFA) confirmed that Andre Ayew has been retained as the Black Stars captain with Andre Ayew and Richard Ofori his two deputies.

It has all but ended club-less Asamoah Gyan's chances of playing for the Black Stars  and captaining the team

“Gyan believes he is a role model for most of the players and regardless his role in the national team. At any point in time he is willing to give his brotherly support to any leader present and is only interested in serving Ghana in any capacity. This is the best decision taken by CK Akunnor,” he added.

On the eve of the African Cup of Nations in Egypt in 2019, then coach of the Black Stars Kwasi Appiah decided to strip Asamoah Gyan off the captains armband.

Instead, coach Kwasi Appiah handed the captain's armband to Gyan's deputy Andre Ayew creating a storm even before the tournament began.
