Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan could delay his pre-season training with Al Ain as the marine continue to mount search for his friend Castro.
Theophilus Tagoe and his girlfriend Janet Bandu are feared dead after he was drowned in the Volta Lake near the Ada Estuary last week during a jet ski expedition.
Gyan is likely to delay his travel to the United Arab Emirates where club side Al Ain are expected to begin pre-season on July 20.
“He surely does not want to go to Al Ain for their July 20th preseason camp, he doesn’t want to go,” a source close to the player said.
“Baffour and Asamoah are both hurt about the incident, but Baffour feels that Asamoah should return to the pitch and count on him to keep him update on the search.
“I really don’t think he is ready for the field now, he is in a state of shock right now.
Rescue efforts have so far proved unsuccessful.
