Legendary Ghanaian striker, Asamoah Gyan has endorsed tipped AS Roma starlet Felix Afena-Gyan for future success with the Black Stars.
According to Ghana’s all time leading goal scorer, the youngster has the qualities to lead the Black Stars attack in future insisting that he should not be rushed into the team.
Speaking in an interview with Aspa FM in Accra, the former Sunderland striker was full of praise for the young attacking sensation.
“He is a very good player,” Gyan admitted.
“I have watched all his games he has played and I think he is the future for the Black Stars but we must admit that he is young and we must not rush him.
“Let us allow him to join the team at the right time. He has been impressive but rushing him into the Black Stars will not be helpful.
“I think he not joining the Black Stars was based on bad intension because I think he wants to develop himself and stay focused as well but I believe he will surely join the team at the right time with proper integration,” Asamoah Gyan added.
