The Ghana captain has since sought to relocate to first-team duties, even offering his services, on-loan, to English championship side, Reading FC, who botched an opportunity to sign Ghana’s all-time top scorer, only last week.
Gyan, who was celebrated by Al Ain fans during his time, there, has explained how Al Ain passed on the opportunity:
“I spoke to them a couple of months ago [but] they told me they’ve had their recruitment [and] everything was okay. So, I had no chance there,” he has told GHONE TV.
Gyan revealed he understands the bitterness of the Al Ain fans. However, “… moving there [Al Ahli], I’ll say it wasn’t my fault. It’s part of the job.”
Well, how does Gyan feel about the transition? “I’m very happy where I am [Al Ahli] today.”
Gyan will wear the number 90 shirt and has revealed he chose the number because he sealed his loan move from Shanghai SIPG at the death of the transfer deadline day.
The new UAE Pro League begins September 17, and Gyan is expected to introduce his goalscoring prowess to help his new side from victory to victory.
