Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has been quick to shift the glory after winning the UAE Pro-League with Al Ain and surpassing his debut goal tally.
The Black Stars captain scored a hat-trick on Thursday to hand Al Ain their second successive Pro-League title with a 3-0 win over Dubai.
The hat-trick sees Gyan pull away to 28 goals in the race for the UAE goal king award.
He now leads Brazilian Grafite by a four goal margin and remains on track to clinching a second successive top scorerâ€™s award in the UAE top flight.
The former Sunderland hitman has thanked his club and the Al Ain team for their support while reveling in his personal glory.
â€œI am happy for our (Al Ain) Premier League feat and also personally happy that I broke my own record of the number goals scored,â€ he told Angel FM.
â€œSo far I have scored 28 goals even though the league is not yet over.
â€œI want to thank the club and the team for all the support they have given me.
â€œThe way the team also played helped me a lot and I thank them for that.â€
Asamoah Gyan has made his impact extremely felt since joining Al Ain in 2011 initially on a seasonâ€™s-long loan deal before making his UAE stay official by signing a five-year contract when his loan deal expired in 2012.
