Not every Gyan follower on twitter was happy with his loan move from Sunderland to Al –Ain. The tweets that the attacker sent to the world were not received well by most of the Sunderland faithfuls. Most of the Sunderland fans called him a traitor. Who or what exactly he betrayed appears unclear. Who does not want to be progress in life? Benoit-Assou Ekoto would have done the same thing (he plays football for the money not the passion). Sunderland’s jewel’s performances had been below par early on in the season and I realized something was not right somewhere. Gyan was not happy and he had had enough. Sunderland was struggling to even draw games. He wanted to leave .His strike partner Darren Bent had left for Villa and Welbeck had gone back to Manchester. After losing 2-1 to Chelsea early on in the season, Bruce told reporters: “He’s been unsettled now, if we are being brutally honest, for weeks and months.
It was just time for something different, for the next step. Chairman Niall Quinn emphasised the financial benefits of the deal for both Sunderland and the player. It was the best for both parties; Gyan receiving up to four times his previous salary.His move from UK to UAE took many people by surprise.
Former Sunderland manager Steve Bruce did not expect the club’s record signing to return to the club after the Ghana international completed the loan move to Al Ain but the new coach Martin O’Neill wants the lad back.
@ASAMOAH_GYANcome back with your head clear and your football stronger

“I will leave people to make their own conclusions about that but it baffles me how he can leave the best league in the world to go and play on the other side of the world. No disrespect to Abu Dhabi or wherever he has gone, but I find it really baffling.”-Steve Bruce
To Billy re,sunderland echo, i will be back at SAFC very soon and whenever im in da uk, i will sign ur top 4 u. Pls dont be upset. God bless-(@ASAMOAH_GYAN) via Twitter
Dont want to see any child upset over me. I have a child so i know what its like -(@ASAMOAH_GYAN) via Twitter
Gyan stayed true to his word to meet up with his biggest fan who was upset over his move from Sunderland to Al Ain. Gyan upset five-year-old Billy Ellison, who had got his name printed on his Sunderland shirt just days before the Al Ain move.
When Gyan heard the story of Billy’s disappointment he wrote on Twitter how bad he felt for Billy. Gyan invited Billy, along with his dad, to Ghana’s friendly international with Nigeria.
Really looking forward to seeing Billy and his family on the 11th october at the Ghana V Nja match at Watford stadium. See u soon Billy-(@ASAMOAH_GYAN) via Twitter

Rivals Ghana and Nigeria battled out a goalless draw in October’s international friendly at Vicarage Road. The game was a very boring one.Ghana made three changes at the start of the second half, including bringing on star striker Asamoah Gyan.Gyan had his first chance to impress when Pantstil burst forward from right-back and crossed, but the striker headed over.
Ghana has to work on its goal scoring department if the team wants to lift the trophy in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea next month. So when are we going to get a ‘Demba Ba’ or a ‘Samuel Eto’o’?
Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s most ‘prolific’ (least misfiring striker in Ghana) goalscorer, scoring a goal every 2 games. Ghana’s twitter king’s goals will play a very key role in ensuring that Ghana end their 30-year AFCON drought.
The musician cum footballer has become the most popular entertainer in the country winning back to back awards with his main man Castro the Destroyer. Last year, the 25-year-old made all the headlines scoring three goals during the Ghana Black Stars progression into the quarter-finals. I don’t want to talk about the Suarez thing.
Last month Gyan received an award for the Best African Sports Personality from the charity organisation, Ghana UK Based Achievement (GUBA) Awards for his outstanding sporting achievements as a Ghanaian based in the UK.
The striker beat the likes of Yaya Toure ,Drogba and Osaze Odemwengie to clinch the title.Gyan’s very good friend and ex teammate, Anton Ferdinand, was the first to congratulate him.
The Glo ambassador has been appointed as Ghana’s Tourism Ambassador by the Ministry of Tourism.He is expected to use his influence as a renowned international footballer cum musician to promote Ghana.
The dancing striker also won this year’s Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG) faward, sports personality of the year.
Big thank you to Ghana’s tourism minister Akua Sena Dansua 4 making me the Ambassador 4 tourism 4 our motherland Ghana – (@ASAMOAH_GYAN) via Twitter
@ASAMOAH_GYAN It was a really good game! Good job on those 2 amazing goals you scored. Keep it up we all with you and LOVE YOU ☑

Dubai is hot! I thought Ghana was hot chale monko!
Asamoah Gyan’s outstanding form in the UAE continued on Thursday when he scored twice for Al Ain to beat Al Jazira 3-1 in the top-of-the-table clash.The two goals helped Al Ain to open a four-point lead at the top.Al Ain are the only unbeaten team left in the league, four points ahead of champions Jazira.Gyan is now the leading scorer in the UAE league after scoring 13 goals in 12 matches.
I just pray the heat doesn’t kill him.
