No decision on captain for Kenya game yet - Ibrahim Tanko

Deputy Black Stars coach Ibrahim Tanko has insisted that they are yet to decided on who will lead the team in AFCON 2019 clash against Kenya following reports that Kwadwo Asamoah will lead the team on Saturday.

Partey has been handed the armband in the last four matches of the Black Stars with substantive captain Asamoah Gyan and deputy Andre Ayew left out of the squad.

In the current squad for Saturday's 2019 AFCON qualifier against Kenya, Asamoah is senior-most player and many believe he should be accorded with the respect by handing him the armband to lead the team on Saturday.

But according to coach Tanko, they are yet to arrive on a decision about who will skipper the team against the Harambee Stars at the Kasarani.

"We have not decided who will captain the team yet, that decision will be taken this evening after training", Tanko told FOX 97.9 FM.

"We have heard a lot of people saying we have given the captaincy to Kwadwo Asamoah but all those are not true, we will decide who captains the team (against Kenya) this evening."
