Former Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan was brought to tears during an emotional conversation about his career last night.
Asamoah Gyan was speaking at the launch of his book, ‘Legyandary’ at a creme de la creme event graced by H.E Nana Addo, Hon Kennedy Agyapong. Dr Ofori Sarpong, Emmanuel Adebayor, El Hadji Diouf, among others.
Gyan was very emotional while explaining the pivotal role his older brother has played in his football career.
Asamoah Gyan told Gary Al-Smith on the Red Carpet during that: “sometimes I see people on the street and then they tell me, ‘you are the most hated player in Ghanaian history’ but they also tell me ‘I am the most loved’ so I always sit down and ask myself why?”.
He continued that “that hated part, sometimes I ask myself questions, and then I came to understand it comes with the territory I put myself in”.
Asamoah Gyan hit the climax of an emotional moment when he started speaking about his brother and how he shaped his career to become who he is today. “With the support of my brother who I always mention, I am very emotional right now. He is the key,” he said.
“He is the one behind my success, sometimes criticisms and everything comes, people blame him for being a bad influence but they don’t know what he has done behind the scenes,” Gyan said in the video below which captures him wiping tears from his eyes.
The book, ‘LeGyandary’, documents the known and unknown facts, as well as, the told and untold story of former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan.
The book was launched in a colourful programme held at the Kempiski Gold Coast Hotel on Saturday, April 30, 2022.
