Gyan has previously expressed an interest in possibly taking up a coaching role with the Black Stars.

He said in an interview on Citi TV that he would consider a role as a strikers’ coach with the men’s national team.

“It’s something I’ve given a lot of thought to. I’ve received a lot of calls suggesting that I venture into coaching. I’d like to handle the Black Stars as a strikers coach, but everything takes time,” Gyan said back in April.

“First, I need to work on my coaching course, and I’m due to begin in June or July, after that we’ll see.”
