Odartey Lamptey touts Jordan Ayew as Gyan's heir
Former Ghana international Odartey Lamptey has earmarked Jordan Ayew to take over from Asamoah Gyan as Black Stars' main hitman.
Jordan Ayew has been left out of the squad for the Afcon 2019 clash against Sierra Leone despite his fine form for English side Crystal Palace.
Meanwhile, Gyan who is struggling for game time at club level has been called into the side for the match against the Leone Stars.
Kwesi Appiah's decision to invite Ghana's all-time top scorer has been criticized especially with his lack of game time.
However, Odartey Lamptey believes a time will come where Jordan will take over the striking position from the 32-year-old marksman.
"Jordan Ayew will be the rightful successor to Asamoah Gyan. He has the capacity to replicate what Asamoah has done and he's young enough to grow in time. He can deliver the goal," he said
