Former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has heaped praises on his older brother, Baffour Gyan.
According to Gyan, Baffour, who is a retired footballer, has been his second god.
In explaining why he sees his brother as his second god, Gyan said he acted as a guardian angel, ensuring that he has a successful career devoid of the mistakes he, Baffour, committed in the past.
“We all serve the living God, but I will say, he is my second god because he has done everything for me,” the former Sunderland player told Max TV.
“The mistakes he made in life, he made sure I didn’t go through them. He is like a guardian angel till now,” he added.
Detailing the impact and influence of his brother on his career, Gyan recalled that it was Baffour’s advice that succeeded in making him decide on schooling in Accra although he had different plans.
“He went to Adisadel College and I wanted to follow in his footsteps when I completed JHS and I had to choose Adisadel College, so I chose all the Cape Coast schools", Gyan said.
The brothers, Baffour and Asamoah Gyan, played as attackers for the national team but it was the latter who had a sterling career and became Ghana’s all-time top scorer with more than 50 goals, a feat that makes him the third African and 52nd player in the world to score more than 50 international goals.
Gyan became the youngest player to score for Ghana in a match against Somalia during the 2006 World Cup qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian youngster, Mohammed Kudus, has made a sensational move to Ajax Amsterdam.
Kudus signed a five-year deal with the former European Champions after the Dutch side paid €9 million (euros) for his service.
He was confirmed on Thursday, 16 July 2020, after passing his mandatory medical exam.
