Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has explained he prefers to put in the hard work on the pitch as he responded to claims of being lazy in training.
Two-time Africa Cup of Nations winner Herve Renard recently labelled the striker a ‘lazy player’, particularly during practice sessions, which is the reason why the 34-year-old has failed to reach his full potential.
Gyan, however, thinks differently.
“I am not lazy,” the frontman, last on the books of Indian Super League side NorthEast United, said as reported by footy-Ghana.
“I put in 70 per cent hard work and practise the basics needed at training. And, then, I give everything I have in games.
“I work hard in games; the final output is what matters, and not during training. Consistency is what matters.”
Renard worked with Gyan in 2008 when the Frenchman joined Ghana’s technical team under Claude Le Roy for the Africa Cup of Nations.
