Former Black Stars player, Joe Addo believes Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan is irreplaceable.

The former Sunderland striker scored his 50th goal for the country against Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the Kumasi Sports Stadium.

Gyan has been rated one of the best strikers for the country.

As the search goes on as to who will replace the Shanghai SIPG striker who is on loan at Al Ahly in the UAE, Joe Addo believes Gyan is unique and will be difficult to be replaced.

“I have watched Gyan and I think he is a unique player. I know the system has change but I think Gyan is irreplaceable” he told GHOne TV. .

“I have watch Majeed Waris in Europe and I really like the way he plays his football. He is quick and I hope he will be free from injuries because we need such players in the team but to I don’t think he can fill the gab if Gyan retires because he is irreplaceable.”

However, former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah who was a panelist on the program said Asamoah Gyan can only be replaced if other players the chance to play.

“I believe Gyan is a great player but I don’t want to call out names of players that can replace him.

“Gyan came to the Black Stars in 2003 and we gave him the chance and confidence so I believe the only way to his replacement is by given the new players the chance and the support they need.” He emphasized.

Asamoah Gyan who scored the fastest goal in the 2006 World Cup in Germany against Czech Republic is the only African player with the highest number of goals in the history of the Word Cup.
