The Role Of Old Players like Asamoah Gyan Cannot Be discounted, Ghana Has To Take Him To The World Cup

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong is calling for the inclusion of former Black Stars striker-cum-captain Asamoah Gyan in the 22 man squad for 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

He said although Gyan lacks his former sharpness, his inclusion in the team can help the Black Stars progress in the World Cup.

Speaking on Happy FM- Accra,  honorable Agyapong said Ghana will need Gyan’s experience at the Mundial.

“He is an old man, he is an old man… but he can motivate the team”, he said.

“His presence alone will make a difference, so when they are going and they send old players along to motivate them, it can be a gamechanger.”

“So the role of old players like Asamoah Gyan cannot be discounted, they must be sent to boost the morale of the young ones. But form what I saw from the games against Nigeria, we can go far,” he added.

Cincinnati Reds outfielder Tommy Phamhas been suspended three games and fined an undisclosed amount by MLB for “inappropriate conduct” prior to Friday night’s game against the San Francisco Giants. Pham says he has accepted a three-game suspension that resulted from his dispute with Joc Pederson of the Giants. The suspension began with Friday night’s game and will span the final two games of the weekend series between the Giants and Reds at Cincinnati. Michael Hill, MLB’s senior vice president for on-field preparation, made the announcement on Saturday.

According to Pederson and multiple reports, the altercation took place prior to Friday’s game. Pham allegedly slapped Pederson “Will Smith-style” because of a dispute within a Fantasy Football league in which the two players participated. Here’s Pederson’s explanation of what happened:

MLB launched in inquiry into the matter shortly after it occurred, and Pham was scratched from the Reds’ Friday lineup, likely in anticipation of a suspension.

Pham, 34, is in his first season with the Reds. In 42 games for Cincinnati, he’s batted .233/.335/.373 (92 OPS+) with five home runs and 24 walks.
