Ghanaian football legend Asamoah Gyan has reacted to calls for him to coach the Black Stars of Ghana.

The 39-year-old, who is among the greatest African strikers of all time, holds a UEFA B coaching license and he is ready to start his coaching career.

However, Gyan believes working his way up through the coaching ranks is crucial with the Black Stars currently under the guidance of Ghanaian tactician Otto Addo.

“I have secured my coaching license so anytime I want to venture into coaching, definitely I will do that,” Gyan said on Ghana Soccer Net.

“I have heard people advocating for me to take up the Black Stars coaching job.

“For me, it’s a good thing and a great honour but in situations like this, we have to face the fact, [but] what experience do you have in coaching?” he asked.

“[Experience] also counts.” He follows the example of colleagues like Laryea Kingston who are gaining coaching experience.”

Gyan is the all-time leading goalscorer of the Ghana national team, with 51 goals.
