Ghana U20 star Assifuah does not want Asamoah Gyan comparison

Ebenezer Assifuah wants to learn a lot from Asamoah Gyan

In-form Ghana U20 striker Ebenezer Assifuah says he is nowhere the level of Asamoah Gyan.

Assifuah’s magnificent display at the recently concluded FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey is well documented globally.

The youngster underlined his huge potential with swash-buckling performances and rib-smacking goals that propelled the Ghanaians to pick bronze during the tournament.

The Liberty Professionals ace won the Golden boot award after ending the tournament as the top scorer with six goals.

The youngster is already being likened to Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan, whom many believe will be the next big thing to happen to Ghana football.

His technique and goal scoring prowess is quite typical of the Ain Ain hitman but the 20-year-old says he is nowhere the exploits of the Ghana captain.

“I don’t want anyone to compare me to Asamoah Gyan. What Gyan has achieved for both club and country is incredible,” Assifuah said

“I am youngster and therefore have a lot to learn. He is way, way ahead of me. I see him as a senior brother that I can learn a lot from.

“My confidence level has gone up after this tournament and so I’m hoping to take advantage of any deal that will benefit me professionally.

“We are two different players but like I said I am the one with lots of things to learn from him and others.”

Assifuah has been linked with a number of stellar clubs abroad with Arsenal the latest to enter the race for his signature.

    Massa why Gyan of all people? What is there to learn from him? Is it his first ever major league title, first ever career hat-trick or his first ever goal king gong all in the U.A.E pro league that you wanna emulate? Massa you gotta shine your eyes! As an up and coming youngster like you with lotta potential you gotta aim high not settling on mediocre stuffs. You can start this by watching videos of the likes of Falcao, Cavani, Rooney, RVP,Eto'o, Drogba among others and learn something from them. You have lotta qualities that can make you reach your full potential if you can work a lot more harder, your quick feet and accurate shots at goal is what really excites me. However you gotta work on your first touch, technique and positioning in front of goal. If you can work on all these you'll definitely go places, wish you all the best in your career.
