Ghanaian football legend Asamoah Gyan recently revealed that he abstains from alcohol, attributing his good looks to this choice.
The 37-year-old continues to be admired by many wherever he goes despite retiring from football a few months ago.
During an Instagram live session with his followers, the former Black Stars striker emphasized that avoiding alcohol has been the key to maintaining his handsome appearance.
“I don’t drink that’s why I’m this fine. It doesn’t mean that I’m condemning those who drink alcohol but the secret to my fineness is that I don’t drink alcohol,” he said, as quoted by Ghanaweb.
Gyan officially announced his retirement from football during a speech at the 30th Afreximbank Annual Meeting on June 20, 2023.
He concluded his illustrious career as Ghana’s all-time leading scorer with 51 goals and the country’s second most-capped player.
Additionally, he holds the title of Africa’s highest scorer at the FIFA World Cup, having netted six goals over three tournaments.
Before retiring, Gyan had not represented the national team for over four years, with his last appearance dating back to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
He was notably absent from Ghana’s squad in last year’s World Cup in Qatar, where the Black Stars exited the tournament during the group stages.
On the club front, his last appearance was with Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities two years ago, after which he had been inactive following his departure from the team.
While Asamoah Gyan’s future plans remain uncertain, he has been primarily involved in football punditry and holds a UEFA B coaching license, although he has yet to take up any coaching roles.
