Bernard Arthur, the former Accra Hearts of Oak striker, has urged the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to organise a testimonial match for one of the country’s all-time greats, Asamoah Gyan.
Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals in 106 appearances and Africa’s leading top scorer with six goals at the FIFA World Cup.
He has been to numerous Africa Cup of Nations tournaments and has lost the title on two occasions in 2010 Angola against Egypt and 2015 Equatorial Guinea-Gabon against Cote d’Ivoire in the finals.
According to Bernard Arthur, he does not understand why Gyan has not been honoured with a testimonial game after an illustrious career with the national team since 2003.
Speaking on a Koforidua-based FM station, the former Liberty Professionals forward said: “Gyan is incomparable and I’m not saying this because he is my friend but I’m being real”
“Looking at his achievement for the country, I believe by now we should have played a match to honour him, he deserve to be celebrated. You can make a case for other players in the national team but Gyan has done a lot.”
“I think it will be great to play a testimonial game for him and I’m sure he will be happy with that,” he concluded.
