Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has welcomed the decision to tie the players to a contract claiming that will bring an end to a lot of disagreements in camp.

Delay in the payment of appearance fees resulted in players threatening to boycott training ahead of their final Group G match against Portugal.

There were issues of indiscipline in camp where Kevin-Prince Boateng had to be thrown out for insulting the coach in the full glare of his teammates.

Sulley Muntari was also expelled from camp for attacking a Ghana FA official during discussions on the payment of appearance fees.

Michael Essien refused to warm-up before the Portugal match and has had his behaviour referred to the Ghana FA Executive Committee.

The new contract, which entails the code of conduct and mode of payment for bonuses, will address all these and captain Gyan will bring an end to a lot of issues in camp.

“I think the contract will bring a lot discipline to camp. We are waiting for the papers to be distributed and once we receive them we will go through them and revert,” Gyan said.

“Everything is calm and the players agree that in every human institution there should be law and other.’’

    Asamoah Gyan is an ass licker. He cannot be a leader and fight for the course of his team mates. His leadership was poised with so many problems as he aligns himself to management, disregarding the interest of his team mates. The senior players did not trust him, hence those agitations expressed in Brazil. Trust me, if Gyan were to have control and trust from the senior players, they wouldn't have behaved that way. There is no unity among the players, period. Stephen Appiah did a tremendous and hard work to put the team together and established himself as one of the best leaders Ghana have had. His records are there for us to see. Gyan could not continue in the footsteps of Stephen Appiah because of his selfishness and bad ego of his. He always want the best for himself and no wonder Jordan Ayew did not square that ball to him to score in the world match between Ghana and Germany. It is likely Ghana will reverse to Abedi and Yeboah era where infighting deluded them of glory. Gyan should behave like a man, not a boy.
