Gyan fully fit for AFCON 2017 - Anim Addo

Manager of Asamoah Gyan’s foundation, Samuel Anim Addo, says the Black Stars captain is mentally and physically ready for next month’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon

According to Anim Addo, Gyan has battled injuries since joining Dubai-based side Al Ahli on loan from Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.

However, the 31-year-old lasted the entire duration in their league match against Al-Ittihad Kalba over the weekend which confirms his battle readiness.

“BabyJet is ready mentally, physically and this is where Ghanaians will see the best out of ASA. The team has come close on three occasions and I think with hard work this time round the Cup will be in Ghana,” he told Starr Sports.

Gabon 2017 will be Gyan’s sixth Africa Cup of Nations after making his debut in Ghana 2008.
