Asamoah Gyan, a former Black Stars tournament has slammed the attitude of the Black Stars following their exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Ghana, a four-time African champion endured their worst run in the tournament following a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday night.

The result saw Ghana finish at the bottom of Group C after failing to win any of their three group matches.

Speaking on SuperSport TV, Gyan criticised the attitude of the players, insisting they only started playing well when captain Andre Ayew was sent off.

“I’m devastated. I’m shocked. You can’t win a game with this kind of attitude. I saw the real Ghana when we went down to ten men,” the 36-year-old said.

“We didn’t have a sense of urgency throughout the tournament. Why do you only push when you have ten men instead of 11 men? We didn’t play with determination. We didn’t play with any ambition. We’ve lost, we’re going home.

“Everyone in Ghana will be disappointed. We didn’t create many chances and we’re going home. I’m very disappointed we’re going home. We didn’t see the Ghana we know today,” he added.
