Tony Yeboah descends on Gyan over captaincy issue

It is surprising how we quarrel over captainship as if the captain takes a bigger bonus when the team wins. As Tony Yeboah rightly said, captain should be a non-issue. There is nothing like: because we have (or don't have) someone as a captain, our team will win (or lose).
Again when a team wins or plays well, it is not necessarily the captain who will be named as the man of the match. Even the legendary Pele was never a captain of his club, Santos or Brazil team but that did not prevent him from being seen as the most outstanding player in his team.
What the Black Stars must focus on is to build a strong team that can win laurels. It is only when the team wins that each of the players will receive glory and praise. Whoever is the captain is a non-issue.
