Former skipper of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan- who is now acting as the General captain of the team, has been estooled as a chief in Hohoe in the Volta Region of Ghana.
Gyan’s title is the Ngoriya-Doemenyotor of the St. Francis College of Education and the Gbi Traditional Area. The player’s philanthropic gesture for the people of the area, most importantly after solving an age-long water crisis, impressed the opinion leaders of the town, leading to his installation.
The former Sunderland player also funded the construction of a mechanized borehole in the school at a cost of $3000.

Asamoah Gyan was stripped off his captaincy ahead of the AFCON tournament to be staged in Egypt which infuriated him so much that he prematurely retired from the team only to make a u-turn after the president intervened.
