Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has reiterated that he is not thinking about retirement from the Black Stars anytime soon but when the time comes he would like to be given a befitting send-off. 

Gyan believes he deserves to be given a farewell that would make his soul happy taking into consideration the great services he has rendered for the nation.

The 34-year-old striker is Ghana's all-time leading goalscorer with 51 goals.

"The people at the top have seen what I have done so if they decide to give me a farewell something, definitely my soul will be happy," Gyan told Adom TV.

"Although people appreciate me it will depend on how to do it. I will do my job till the time I am done. I can decide with my team that I will play a testimonial game. GFA can decide that they will do something for me [play a game or something]. It will depend on them."

He added, "Secondly it will depend on me on how I want to go about it. For now, I am still in the game but as time goes on, ideas will come. I haven’t planned [on how I will exit the Black Stars]. I am still playing."

"It is natural. I could tell you that I will retire in four years but I can call my brother the next day and tell him that I cannot continue playing.

"It depends on how the day goes. Every day, the human body changes so let’s see how it goes but for now, I am okay and playing football."

Gyan made his debut for the senior national team in 2003 and now holds the record for the most appearances with 109.

He has played in three World Cups scoring six goals to become Africa’s leading goal scorer at the global event.
