Asamoah Gyan finally arrives in UAE for Al-Ain pre-season, Castro still missing

Gyan has rejoined his club on their pre-season training

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan will make a delayed arrival in the UAE on Sunday to join his club Al Ain for their pre-season even though his friend Castro has not been found.

The managers of the talented striker managed to convince Gyan on Saturday to join up with the rest of his Al Ain team-mates ahead of the start of the new season.

Gyan was expected to have joined the club last week but the disappearance of his musician friend Castro, who is feared dead following his drowning while on holidays with the striker, delayed his departure.

This means Gyan missed his club's two-week training camp in Italy which ended with a 2-1 friendly victory against English League One side Barnsley on Saturday.

The 28-year-old has endured a painful recuperation in his homeland following his impressive two-goal spell at the World Cup, with a jet ski accident leading to the disappearance of musician Castro.

That tragedy even led to a Ghanaian lawyer calling on Gyan's arrest for questioning over the incident.

Gyan and veteran midfielder Helal Saeed will meet up with the rest of the squad, who returned to the Middle East Saturday from their Montecatini Terme base.

The Ghana captain will hit the ground running with training at the club ahead of some key matches scheduled to whip the squad into shape.

Friendlies with Al Kuwait SC on Wednesday and Saudi’s Al Nasr on Friday lie ahead, before Al Ain depart for another European tour in Austria on July 31.

    What animalish people can be in Ghana nowadays? So if castro drown as he the only person in this World to have had drown? Many greatest human beings perished in the deep waters what about castro? If God has chosen someone to rest in peace in water who are you to judge God works? The lawyer who asked for Asmoah Gyan arrest should have rather arrest by attemting to put falls on someone. Gyan is not my fan neither castro,all of them are nothing to me but what people dont beleived in God works pains me a lot. God can choose even to let castro or anyone to past away strange. Gyan is innocent. Give us some break please. Does it mean Castro will live forever? Everyone is gonna die accordent to God plans. Do not blame anyone here disbeleivers. why not join hands to search for castro rather than mouth mouth if you so inlove with castro? Go and help to search for him and always pray for him wherever he is now. Stop blaming here and there.

    @ Asamoah Gyan, go ahead goes on. We all like Castro, but go on with your life. If I were you I'll hand everything to my personal lawyer to handle everything deliberately through the eyes of the law, since certain few are trying to point fingers at you. God has a destination for all of us and if one's is not suitable for him, then you can't be BLAMED for it. You just have to be careful how you hang out with friends, cos anything can happen. Keep strong and good luck to you!!
