Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey, Richard Ofori Get New Blackstars Roles

The Technical team of the senior national team, the Black Stars, upon a broad consultation, has maintained Andre Ayew as Captain of the side.

The Swansea City attacker who led Ghana to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, maintains his position as leader of the team despite changes at the technical realm of the senior national team.

In a related development, Thomas Teye Partey of Atletico Madrid has been appointed as 1st Vice Captain while Richard Ofori steps in as 2nd Vice Captain.

The trio will lead the team as the Black Stars go through the remaining Africa Cup of Nation qualifiers as well as the qualifying games for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and subsequent tournaments.
This means Ghana’s all time scorer Asamoah Gyan is no longer Blackstars captain.

The former Sunderland forward had the captains armband taken from him by former Blackstars coach Kwesi Appiah to the 2019 AFCON making him the general captain.

Asamoah has not been active for some months and we still do not know if he may announce his international retirement anytime soon.

The Ex-Al Ain player is yet to announce his next destination in club football as we understand the likes of Kotoko and other clubs are chasing his signature.

Asamoah Gyan has netted 51 goals from 109 matches.
