Historic Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan wants to go all the way
If you were Asamoah Gyan, how would you be feeling, now that you are reportedly the country’s highest scorer, ever?
Pretty pleased with yourself, most likely.
But the Stars captain is taking things calmly at the team’s Chloorkop training base in Johannesburg, South Africa.
That’s according to the communications director of the GFA, Ibrahim Sannie.
“He’s reacted to it with some calmness and level headedness. I think that he doesn’t want the feat to get into his head. The immediate task is to get Ghana to the World Cup in 2014.”
Gyan officially became Ghana’s all-time top scorer after scor ing two goals against Sudan last Friday at the Al-Merreikh Stadium in Ombdurman.
He scored in each half of the World Cup qualifier to beat Abedi Pele’s reported record of 33 goals.
“One striking thing he said was that ‘If at this age I’ve been able to achieve this, I will be able to go all the way and set new standards’”
“So it looks like he is now bent on extending what records he’s set.”
Ghana leave South Africa later in the week for Maseru.
