Asamoah Gyan has responded to comments made by Ghana’s former physical coach, Herve Renard, about his commitment to physical training.

Herve Renard, who also a two-time AFCON winning coach, in an interview with TV3’s Juliet Bawuah, stated that Asamoah Gyan was supposed to have a better career, but he was lazy.

“In training, he was lazy. He only likes the games. But he was the most important player but I know him and he didn’t like the training, he only likes the competition, the games,” Herve Renard said.

Asamoah Gyan, however, disagrees with the comments made by Renard.

According to a report by Footy-Ghana, Asamoah Gyan believes there was more to delivering consistently than just “killing” himself at training.

“I am not lazy,” Asamoah Gyan said.

“I put in 70% hard work and practice 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,” Gyan added.
