Ex-Dutch star striker Ruud van Nistelrooy has expressed admiration for Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan but has questioned the striker's decision to remain in the Arabian Peninsula.Â
The 28-year-old equalled African's goal record at the World Cup finals after scoring in Saturday's Group G 2-2 stalemate against Germany in Fortaleza.
Gyan also reached a milestone as he has become the first African player to score at three different World Cup finals.
And, a surprised van Nistelrooy has praised his quality and questioned his decision to play in the UAE.
â€œWhy is Gyan playing in the UAE? I donâ€™t know what he is doing there .He should be playing with a top side in Europe. He had a tremendous game,â€ he said on ESPN.
Gyan left English side Sunderland to join Al Ain in summer 2012 after his debut season at the Stadium of Light.
Gyan has been linked with a return to Europe with Napoli and other clubs interested but Al Ain have offered the striker a new deal.
