Former Accra Hearts of Oak player, Bernard Don Bortey says Asamoah Gyan is not good enough to lead the Black Stars as captain.
Asamoah Gyan has been in the news for the wrong reasons after printing his picture on the Black Stars captain arm band after the team humiliated Ethiopia in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
Many sports pundits and football fandom have criticized the former Sunderland striker for his action.
However, according to Bortey, although the all-time leading scorer for the national team has a lot of experience, he lacks leadership skills.
“Asamoah Gyan and I started Black Stars the same day, so I think Asamoah Gyan has that much experience but I can say he is not a strong leader like Stephen Appiah.
“A strong leader should command them [teammates], he should tell them to do this and do that. If the team loses, all the blame will come to you and the coach.
Don Bortey urged Asamoah Gyan to leave up to expectation and take criticisms in good faith.
Asamoah Gyan is now the top scorer for Ghana after scoring the opener against Ethiopia on Sunday.
