Asamoah Gyan hopeful of staying fit for AFCON

Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan says he is confident of staying fit ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of nations in Egypt.

The former Sunderland man missed out on recent national team assignment due to injuries and has therefore given some level of assurance that he is working harder to stay fit before and during the tournament.

“I will be working harder at club level and would do my best to ensure that I stay fit.That is the most important thing .When a player is fit he is able to do a lot of things so I am looking forward to staying up on my feet before and during the AFCON”.He told the media.

Gyan would be looking to make it to his seventh AFCON tournament with the Black Stars and particularly with an eye on winning it for the first time as the captain of the team.
