Cameroonian and CEO of Five Star Foods Limited, Armel Cedric believes Asamoah Gyan’s experience will be massively needed at the Nations Cup in Egypt especially to beat his countrymen next month.

According to the young CEO whose company is one of the best sausage producing companies in Ghana and currently located in Kasoa believes experience is Key in every endeavour.

Despite all the controversies surrounding the General Captain of the Black Stars, Cedric believes the Kayserispor attacker’s influence will be immense at the tournament.

“Even if  Ghana are not taking Asamoah Gyan to the tournament  and you not playing him in starting XI, you need to take him, because, in these kinds of tournaments, you need experienced players around the team,” he told the media.

“Talking of even beating my country Cameroon who are defending champions will be herculean task with Gyan,” he added.

Gyan has been in the news for several reasons, after early announcing his retirement from the Black Stars over the captaincy of the team. He later rescinded the decision following the President of the country’s intervention.

Meanwhile  the list of players who have so far  captained the Black Stars at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
