Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has confirmed Asamoah Gyan will remain his captain while Andre Ayew will deputize as the status quo is maintained on his return.
Gyan, 31, will continue to wear the armband under the returning Ghanaian boss.
It has been claimed Gyan, currently on loan at United Arab Emirates side Al Ahli, will be stripped of the leadership role.
But the former Kotoko defender has confirmed the iconic super star will remain the leader on the pitch.
“Nothing has changed. Asamoah Gyan remains captain and Andre Ayew is his assistant. Let’s support them.” he said at his unveiling in Accra on Tuesday.
Appiah has five games coming up in three months.
