“It looks like people want me to retire but I’m not done yet. I had a couple of injuries but I’m getting back to full fitness,” Gyan told TV3 as reported by

“I’m now okay and feel good in my body.

“I have added a bit of weight that I have to work on and get back to shape,” he concluded.

Gyan played in Italy, France, England, United Arab Emirates, China and Turkey before taking his talents to India.
