Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan has expressed delight after playing his first full game since May 2017.
Gyan, 32, since his move to Kayserispor, has been battling recurring injuries which have limited him to just cameo appearances.
But on Monday, Gyan lasted the entire duration of Kayserispor’s hard-fought win over Karabukspor in Turkish league. His last full game was for Al Ahli Dubai in Arabian Gulf league.
And the all-time leading scorer in the history of Black Stars, although disappointed not to be among the scorers, was thrilled with his performance.
“Great performance on Sunday, I was so happy for myself because for the first time in a year I was able to last the entire duration of the game,” Gyan said in an Instagram video.
“I feel so good, I was able to play 90 minutes, great game although I didn’t get a goal but the performance was good.”
“It was a good team performance and I am very happy for myself because it feels to be back.”
Asamoah Gyan signed for Kayserispor in July 2017 following the expiration of his contract at Chinese side Shanghai SIPG. He has managed a total of 628 minutes, scoring four goals.
