Asamoah Gyan has retired from the Black Stars

New Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says striker Asamoah Gyan must be given the time to rescind his decision on international retirement after holding talks with the Al Ain player.

The Black Stars leading marksman announced in temporal retirement from the national team folin February lowing the verbal abuse and threats he received in the wake of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

He was subjected to severe abuse with some even wishing death on the player by making up mock obituaries for the striker.

Keen on getting his players available for the start of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, Appiah held talks with the player to convince him to return.

The ex-Ghana captain admits that Gyan would be a good addition to the Black Stars but must be given the time to rescind his decision.

“I have spoken to Asamoah Gyan on two occasions hoping that he will come back. No one can doubt his quality,” Appiah said.

“He is a very good player who will be a good addition to our plans if he is available to us.

“But it’s up to him to make that decision.”

Gyan has also said that he must be given the time to sort out the problems he faced during the Africa Cup of Nations before he returns to the national team.

He is currently the leading scorer in the UAE top-flight with 22 in 21 matches for Al Ain.
