He claims that the technical team would only issue a public statement after speaking with the athlete and has nothing to say about the hot topic.
According to Citisportsonline, Boateng stated, “I will prefer to discuss this matter with the player [Gyan] in person rather than discussing with the outside public, out of respect for the player [Gyan] and a friend of mine as a person.
We won’t reveal anything until we’ve spoken with Gyan directly, as we haven’t done so yet.
“As a staff, we greatly value Gyan. He is a very good friend of mine both as a player and as a person, and what he has accomplished for Ghana is incredible. Six goals in the World Cup for the leading scorer is incredible. You can only praise his accomplishment.

Gyan gained notoriety following his BBC interview from last month, in which he compared his potential comeback to that of Roger Milla, who left retirement to compete for Cameroon in the 1994 World Cup.
The 36-year-old, who made his international debut in 2003, was a consistent member of the Black Stars for for two decades.
He played at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, but he hasn’t played for the national team since.
Gyan has struggled with nagging ailments over the past three years, and his tenure with the Ghana Premier League team Legon Cities also didn’t go as planned.
Ahead of the World Cup in Qatar, he has opened the door to a comeback to the Black Stars despite his inactivity and insistence that he hasn’t actually retired.
