The gaffer of the senior national team of Saudi Arabia says the former Sunderland striker was supposed to have a better career but was lazy.
 
 
French coach Hervé Renard has tagged the former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan as a lazy footballer.
 
According to the two-time Africa Cup of Nations winner, Gyan could have had a better career if he worked harder in training.
 
The two worked together in 2008 during the Africa Cup of Nations tournament staged in Ghana.
 
Herve was assistant to then-head coach Claude Le Roy’s and reportedly took charge of the physicals in training.
 
“The quality of Asamoah Gyan was amazing. I was always impressed with his timing of headers,” the Saudi Arabia coach said in an interview with TV3.
 
“He was a very good goalscorer, fantastic player, amazing player.
 
“But I have something to tell him. He was supposed to have a better career, but he was lazy,” Renard said while laughing.
 
 
 
“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,” he concluded.
 
Gyan has scored 51 goals for Ghana, more than any player. He also has more World Cup goals (six) than any African footballer.
 
The 34-year-old is currently without a club after his short term deal with Indian side NorthEast United ended in January.
