Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan believes burgeoning striker Jordan Ayew will blossom into the nation’s finest goal poacher in future.

Jordan came under a barrage of criticism for refusing to lay a pass to Gyan who was in a better position to score against Germany in their second Group G match.

But Gyan who admitted he spoke to Jordan about the issue is confident that the young Marseille man will lead the lines one day.

“Jordan is the future of the Black Stars and we need to be patient with him,” Gyan told the media.

“We spoke about his decision over and over again but he apologized and I feel it should end there.

“He will one day lead the line and we need to allow him feel free to express himself.”

    Apuuu even Samedge who has two left legs is a better striker than Jordan Ayew.

    I perfectly agree that Jordan will lead the team one day.because Asamoah Gyan started this way and now he is our best striker so he will be the same.let give him the opportunity and the sound mind.but he needs to be trained on his activeness and smartness like his brother Dede Ayew.

    I think so too. I could see his remorse in the portugal game after the bashing he had after the Germany game and i am sure he will always way his options and make the right decisions in front of goal in the future. Lessons well leaned and i have no doubt a changed Jordan Ayew will pull a lot of surprises in the future. However, this will toughen him and be the better player we all wish for.

    Dauda has an advantage over Kwaresey Becos he's taller.
