Ex Ghana Black Stars striker, George Alhassan has debunked claims that Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s all time best footballer.
According to the former Great Olympics lynchpin, anyone who should be given that accolade must have won laurels for the country as he did while he was playing actively.
Speaking on Happy FM’s Anopa Bosuo Sports Thursday morning, George Alhassan, 62, said he won two Africa Cup of Nations trophies, a top scorer accolade at the 1982 AFCON as well as top scorer in the local league so these set him apart from the others.
“Asamoah Gyan can never be Ghana’s all time best player. To get that accolade, one must have won laurels for the country. I have won two Africa Cup of Nations for Ghana and I was the top scorer in the 1982 AFCON. I have also won the top scorer in the local league so I will be the number one. Maybe Asamoah Gyan can be second following his exploits expecially at the World Cup.” George Alhassan told Happy FM.
