Asamoah Gyan delighted at Al Ain, has no regrets over UAE move
Asamoah Gyan says his rich-vein of scoring form has vindicated his ‘unpopular’ move to the United Arab Emirates two seasons ago.
The Ghana captain moved from Sunderland to Al Ain in much-publicized move reported to be worth 6 million pounds for a season’s loan spell.
Many questioned why the 27-year-old would swap the elite English Premier League for the obscure UAE top-flight.
In his first season, he banged in 21 goals in 22 matches, an average of 0.954 goals per match.
Last season, Gyan raked in 31 goals in 22 league appearances for the Boss.
“My move to Al Ain has been great,” Gyan simply said.
Gyan has previously played for Udinese in the Italian Serie A and with French side Rennes.
