The Chief Executive Officer of Databank Group, Kojo Addae Mensah has settled on former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan as his greatest Ghanaian player of all time.
Gyan has been out of form due to his consistent and persistent injuries since returning to the local scene. As a result, he has not earned a call-up into the senior national team for some time.
However, the Databank CEO, Addae Mensah insists he former Sunderland and Al Ain attacker is the best player to have played for Ghana.
“Gyan is my greatest Ghanaian player of all time,” Kofi Addai Mensah mentioned in an interview with Ashh FM.
“I know people will mention Pele, Polo and the likes, but Asamoah has performed at the highest level of international football and he is Ghana’s highest goal-scorer of all time.
“He is a great guy”, the Databank CEO added.
Earlier this week, Gyan dismissed claims he has retired from international duties, adding that he looks forward to playing for Ghana once again.
Ryan scored Ghana’s first ever World Cup goal in 2006 in Germany, and he is Ghana’s most-capped player and all-time top scorer, with 106 appearances and 51 strikes respectively.
He also holds the record of being Africa’s all-time top scorer at the World Cup with 6 goals after shattering Roger Milla of Cameroon‘s record at the 2014 global showpiece in Brazil.
Gyan was the first player in the world to score in nine consecutive tournaments before it was recently equalled by Cristiano Ronaldo during the Euro 2020.
