"I have always believed that I can be a good a coach after football," he told Adom TV on the in an interview.
"I have been telling my brother that I will be his assistant when he becomes a coach or he will be my assistant because I have the IQ to become a top coach."
"I will start my coaching after football. I am not giving up on that," he added.
Gyan could join his boyhood club Asante Kotoko when the league resume after the covid-19 break.
