Maxwell Konadu says the Ghana technical team is satisfied with the performance of striker Asamoah Gyan at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The 27-year-old is yet to score for the Black Stars after two games in the tournament.
Gyan’s mini-goal drought in South Africa has raised some concerns over his sharpness up front as the lone striker for the Black Stars.
But the team’s assistant coach insists expectations of the technical team has been met by Gyan– stressing on the Al Ain striker’s overall team play.
“Asamoah Gyan’s vital passes has given us the two goals,” Konadu said at a press conference at the team’s hotel on Friday.
“It is your opinion (on Gyan’s below-par performance) and I respect that but we think he has done very well so far.”
Gyan has scored 30 goals in 65 appearances for Ghana and is now just three goals shy of equaling the record of all-time leading scorer for the Black Stars currently held by ex Ghana captain Abedi Pele.
