Gyan shower praises on Kumasi fans

The Black Stars skipper is pleased with the support of Kumasi fans

The Baba Yara Sports Stadium, Kumasi has witnessed several emphatic victories by the Black Stars, including their 6-1 win against Egypt in 2013, due the huge support the Black Stars command in the second largest city in Ghana.

Asamoah Gyan, the skipper of the Black Stars who believe they wouldn't have come this far with matches in Kumasi without the huge support base lauded the fans after hundreds of people watched their first training in ahead of their clash against the Red Devils of Congo.

"We are grateful to the fans. They always support us anytime we come around for a match, " Gyan told reporters.

"Look at the number of people here, it's amazing considering that this is just a training exercise. It gives us huge motivation to always give our best. I commend them for that and I hope they can troop the stadium in their numbers on Friday to support us."

Black Stars will enplane to Brazzaville for the return leg on September 4.
