I have experience to contribute to the development of sports – Asamoah Gyan

Former Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan recently expressed his readiness to contribute to Ghana’s sports development.

He believes his extensive experience qualifies him to make meaningful contributions.

Gyan’s statement follows his appointment to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s manifesto committee for the 2024 elections.

The former Sunderland striker will lead the New Patriotic Party’s sub-committee on Youth and Sports under Vice President Dr. Bawumia’s leadership, who is the party’s flagbearer.

In a post on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Gyan emphasized that his career’s highs and lows have equipped him for this role.

He stated that meaningful change cannot be achieved by remaining passive.

“When I look back at my career, my highs, my lows, my failures, and my success, I think I have enough experience and the techniques to contribute in sports. I always ask myself, how do we create change if we don’t want to change?” he wrote.

“How do spectate without being on the bench and how do we score without being on the field? How do we pass on the baton to the next generation if we don’t share our experience, how do we achieve without a clear path ahead.”

Gyan added: “I believe that with a collective experience, we can orient the next generation to do better than what we did. We can give hope where hope is lost and we can inspire when all hope seems lost.

“All I know and I will ever know, all I love, and will ever love is SPORTS. Let’s join hands and sharpen the path and the future of SPORTS.”

Gyan retired from professional football during the 30th Afreximbank Annual Meeting on June 20, 2023. With 51 goals, he is Ghana’s all-time top scorer and the second most-capped player.

Additionally, he holds the record for the highest number of goals scored by an African player at the FIFA World Cup, having netted six times across three tournaments.
