Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan rejoins Al Ain for pre-season

Asamoah Gyan has returned to Dubai to begin pre-season training with his club Al Ain.

The Black Stars captain left Accra on Tuesday to rejoin his club after spending almost two months on holidays.

Gyan will be working under a new coach following the appointment of Brazilian Abel Braga.

He alongside his other teammates will be officially introduced to their new coach and new signings made before kicking of their pre-season activities.

The 27-year-old is hoping for another superb campaign haven won back to back top goalscorer’s awards since joining from Sunderland two seasons ago.

The former Stade Rennes hitman has also won every single top flight title since his arrival in 2011.

    Al-Ain thought they cld sign Wilfred Bony (Ivorian) this summer with a head Boggling offer of $280,000 a week deal . Reports says When he rebuffed they included a teasing $10k for each goal scored and $5k for every assist given in their contract offer. But Bony (24) who is keen to trade in the EPL n also poised to emulate his Idol Drogba, also rejected several offers in France, Italy, Germany to join SWANSEA City to boost his world cup chances for les Elephant of la cote d'ivoire... When i read this story, i had goosebumps to the point of almost crying... Don't get me wrong, its a feeling of pride as an African regarding Bony's career stance but i began to worry! Why is it that these career Wrecking vultures only target our African potentials? They never tempt the South American or European prospects- not b'cos they don't have the Money, they are Crude Rich! but b'cos they know reaching the very highest is what matters to this lads and no amount of Money cld sway em into their cash dangeon. But they Lie, not all Africans lack Vision or can trade their God-given talent for Money. Bony has a Dream: to live an indelible mark in the game like his Mentor. He started by winning the Best Player Award in the Eredivisie after bagging 31 goals in 30 matches last season. To turn down not only Al-ain but Manaco, Psg, Leverkunsen, Napoli and shakhtar just to fulfill ur Epl dreams speaks volume of ur level of maturity. U'll surely b the signing of the season. I just can't wait to see ya breathtaking goals. One will wonder how much will he b earning at Swansea... Ladies & Gentlemen, just £35,ooo!. It's not føolishness, its called VISION!! Believe me, it woun't take full seasön b4 bigger clubs start chasing him. He've got the litter to flame the EPL. God Bless thee Dude!!!

    D LIGHT I second ur submission. As a young footballer, u aim at leaving a mark in world football at the highest level. U settle for UAE or any lesser league when u really/desperately need the money otherwise when u nearing retirement as an older player. Gyan was doing fantastic with sunderland and was key together with welbeck, then on loan. Sunderland officials were themselves stunned by his departure.
