Ghana Skipper Asamoah Gyan retires in a huff after captaincy dispute

Ghana Skipper who doubles up as Turkish side Kayserispor forward Asamoah Gyan has announced his shock retirement from international football.

Following the latest development, the striker took to official twitter account to make the announcement.

Gyan remains Ghana’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals from 106 international games.
