I don't even understand my role 'General Captain' - Asamoah Gyan

The former Sunderland star has admitted that he doesn't understand his new role at the senior national team of Ghana.

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan says he needs an explanation on his 'general captain' role at the Black Stars.
 
The 33-year-old's captaincy was stripped few weeks to the just ended 2019 Africa Cup of Nations staged in Egypt by Coach Kwasi Appiah.
 
He lost the armband to his deputy Andre Ayew after serving as the team's match-day captain for seven years.
 
"I was very surprised when the Coach [Kwasi Appiah] called me to inform me about changes in the Black Stars leadership role" Gyan told Joy FM
 
"Coach Appiah told me that I have been elevated to be the team's general captain... I was just confused because you can't have two captains on the same ship"
 
''I don't even understand the meaning of the term general captain. I still need an explanation "
 
Asamoah Gyan has capped for Ghana since 2003 and has scored 51 goals in 107 appearances for the West African Country.
