'Misguided' Gyan moves to UAE

"Misguided" Gyan moves to UAE

From scoring 13 goals in his maiden season in the Barclays English Premier Soccer League, Ghana and Sunderland chief striker Asamoah Gyan has stunned the world by making a move which threatens to send his soccer career into oblivion, by moving to United Arab Emirates side Al-Ain.

After his club endured wide and distrubing speculation linking the player to several clubs in Europe, Gyan settled for the money rich UAE club soccer, ditching the litz and glamour of one of the world's best soccer leagues.

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is equally shocked after complaining that parasites have turned the head of one of his best strikers despite the striker assuring him that he wa committed to the English club.

"I had a conversation with him 48 hours ago and he shook my hand and assured me he wanted to stay at Sunderland," said boss Steve Bruce.

"Within a few hours things changed. It's disappointing and the whole thing has left a bad taste in my mouth," Bruce complained bitterly.

Bruce adds that he does not see Gyan having a future at the end of his loan spell within a year.

"I don't really believe Gyan will have a future here.

"Anyone who has seen Asamoah play will know that he hasn't been himself in recent months.

"It baffles me how he can leave the best league in the world to play in the United Arab Emirates. I'll let people make their own conclusions why."

A reported $2.8 million annual package is suspected to have been the reason for Gyan's shock switch, with critics claiming that the Ghanaian chose money ahead of real soccer.

Sunderland boss Bruce believes that things began to change after Gyan's storming perormance in the 1-1 draw against England recently in London.


"Since that game at Wembley, all the parasites, as I call them, hover around," said Bruce.

"People are in his ear constantly trying to engineer a deal for him. Certainly since the England game, when he played at Wembley so well on the night, something has been troubling him.

"It's very difficult, the constant speculation, no matter what you try to quash or quell, and the people around him, the people who want to make a fast buck, and it affects him in the end," Bruce tells the BBC Sport.
