The Ghanaian forward, who joined Al Ain in a shocking loan move from Sunderland in 2012 earned over 100, 000 pounds a week.
Following his superb display during his loan spell, he was signed permanently by Al Ain.
“Look, I’m going, to be honest here, it was the money,” Gyan told this month’s FourFourTwo magazine. “It was too good to turn down. But a hidden detail is that Sunderland accepted a £7 million [Dh33.7m] loan offer for me from Al Ain before even informing me."
Gyan noted that Al Ain managed to convince him that they will give him good money and that influenced his decision.
He added that, “Pray you never be put in such a situation. It changed everything and I just had to take it or leave it. I don’t regret it though because it made me who I am now.
I enjoyed playing at Al Ain, I stayed for four seasons, and it changed my life financially forever,” Gyan noted.
Gyan before leaving Al Ain in 2015 had scored 128 goals in 123 matches.
During Gyan’s stay at Al Ain he helped the team win three league titles and one President’s Cup crown, scoring the winner in the 2014 final.
The striker won the UAE top flight’s Golden Boot three times and was top scorer in the 2014 Asian Champions League, notching 12 times as Al Ain made it to the semi-finals.
Gyan currently plies his trade in the Turkish top-flight for Kayserispor.
