Asamoah Gyan coy on future but says he is happy at Al Ain

Published on: 17 March 2012

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan will wait until the end of the season to decide whether to make a permanent move to Al Ain, but says he is enjoying his time at the Pro League club.

Gyan is on a one-year loan from Sunderland, the English Premier League club with whom he has a contract until 2014.

"Everything is going well for me since I arrived at Al Ain," said the Ghanaian.

"I am doing so well for the club and everybody is happy of my performance. That's the most important thing for me, to be really, really happy and enjoy my time at the club.

"However, I can't decide on a permanent move until I have completed my loan period.

"Let me finish the season first and then decide where my future lies. I am honestly and definitely happy where I am playing now."

Gyan scored his 12th league goal, a penalty, as Al Ain beat Al Ahli on Friday night to extend their lead at the top of the Pro League to seven points over Al Jazira, the defending champions.

"It was an important win and I am happy to register my name in the scoring sheet again," he said, on his first Pro League match in more than two months since his return from national duty for his country in the African Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

"We won and I think this was more important. We didn't play as well as we were expected and the game plan didn't work out well for us.

"We had a little difficulty because the weather is changing now. You could see after 15 minutes everybody getting tired.

"So we faced a little bit difficulty but the important thing is that we returned with three points."

    Asamoah, i'm thinking of managing a club in the league of North Korea. Money is good and the league is poor similar to where you are currently so you will be able to score lots of goals (not sue about penalties, might get one of the locals to take them), they will pay you lots of money???? Give me a call as its about time you moved to a better league - your old boss Steve Bruce
