Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has laid into those claiming there is a rift between himself and his deputy Andre Ayew and says those claiming there is any are undermining Ghana football.

Rumours are swirling around the Black Stars camp that Gyan, Ghana captain of the last five years is ‘beefing’ with his deputy Andre Ayew over perceptions that Ayew is angling for the captaincy role.

Black Stars insiders have spoken of growing tensions in the side and a camp split between the two players after Andre paid for the air tickets of some players to honour the Nations Cup qualifier against Rwanda following the refusal of the Ministry of Youth and Sports to fund the trip.

Ex-Ghana international Laryea Kingston claimed after the Uganda draw that there were signs the team had “lost respect for Gyan” and claimed that “watching from afar, you can feel something is not right.”

But Gyan disputes those conclusions and says people are simply reacting badly to the failure to beat Uganda.

He said: “A lot of people have opinions but they don’t know what is going on. When things go wrong, that is when people get excuses. We drew against a good defensive side. If we had won, no one would continue to talk about confusion in camp.”

“I don’t have any problem with Andre. Andre is a fighter, he does what he has to do. My advice to people is to stop trying to create problems between two people. When they start that, that is when it creates a problem and brings conflict into the team which is not good. People just sit down and start things that brings confusion”, Gyan added.
