Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has addressed his relationship with Andre Ayew after reports emerged of bad blood between the two.

The Kayserispor ace rubbished the claims and insists they maintain a cordial despite the fake media narrative.

Gyan also revealed during an interview with Jefferies Sintim Koree on Zylofon Sports, that he speaks frequently with the Fernabaçe forward on phone.

“Andre is my assistant in the national team so when we're in camp, we talk about the team's progress.”

“Andre is my friend and there's no friction between us. When I heard about him coming to Turkey, we spoke at length on a video call, I frequently speak with him. We do have a good relationship."

“It's the press that's creating the rivalry between us.”

“These things create division in the team and it must be discouraged.”

Gyan, who is Ghana's all-time leading scorer, joined Kayserispor last term from Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG while Ayew left Swansea City in the summer to sign for Fenerbahce on a season-long loan.
