Criticize me constructively - Asamoah Gyan tells critics

Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan, has reiterated that he is open to criticisms on condition that it is constructive.

The Kayerispor forward admitted that being a public figure goes with criticisms, but must be constructive and not otherwise.

“You can criticize me but it should be constructive. 99 percent of the rumours about me are false and it is unfortunate,” he told Adom TV.

The country’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals and counting, believes Ghana can end its trophy drought in Cameroun next year if all hands are on deck.

Consequently, he has asked all Ghanaians to rally behind the team as they strive to exorcize the over three decades ghost in the 2019 Nations Cup.

“We can lift the AFCON trophy, but all will depend on us, Ghana should pray for us.”

And touching on his regret as a footballer he said, “If there is anything I would love to change in my career, it would be my penalty miss against Uruguay.

"I wish that day could come again for me to retake the penalty differently.

"I am still haunted by that penalty miss but I have to move on.”

The 33-year-old who believes he still wields what it takes to stay on the field for more years, is expected to join his club mates in Turkey tonight.
