Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan will be a pundit on South Africa-based popular sports TV channel SuperSport for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

“Excited to be joining SuperSport TV as a pundit for their coverage of Afcon 2021,” Gyan announced on Twitter.

“This has been in the works for some time and I am excited about the challenge. Looking forward to sharing my knowledge on Africa’s biggest football gathering together with other legends.”

Gyan will share the same studio with other legendary African footballers.

The striker who has a record 51 goals for the Black Stars, will not be in Cameroon, missing out on his first Afcon since 2008.

Gyan appeared in seven Afcon tournaments in a row and scored eight goals. He played in two finals and made the semi-finals six times.

The 36-year-old has played for the senior national team since July 8, 2019, when Black Stars lost to Tunisia in the last 16 at Afcon in Egypt.
