Former Black Stars Captain, Asamoah Gyan, has said that he disagree with the technical committee of the Confederation of African Football for naming Chelsea’s Edouard Mendy best goalkeeper in the just ended Afcon.
According to him on Supersports after the final match on Sunday, February 6, 2022, Gabaski rather deserves the award because he got that positive energy and for ten years, he has been doing something good behind the scenes to help the players.
“For me, I feel Gabaski has got that positive energy he uses to follow the team. For ten years, for him to be a second goalkeeper, there’s something he is doing behind the scenes to help the players.
“Even when he’s on the field, the way he controls them you would see he’s a motivator. That’s why he’s been there all these years and when he had his chance, he was able to deliver. For me, I feel was the best goalkeeper of the tournament”, he added.
Moving on, he said “No disrespect to Mendy but he (Gabaski) did everything to keep Egypt in the tournament”.
Edouard Mendy was named the best goalkeeper in the 33rd edition of the continental showpiece after playing an integral role in the Senegal’s first ever victory in the AFCON.
