Ghanaian students in Turkey held a grand celebration for legendary Ghana Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan on the occasion of his 32nd birthday.
The students numbering about 30 held a picnic on campus at the Firat University, Elazig Turkey to celebrate the achievement of the former Sunderland striker who turned 32 on Wednesday 22nd November this year.
They were joined by many Turkish and other nations to celebrate the iconic Ghana captain who is Africa’s all-time goal scorer at the FIFA World Cup with 6 goals, an achievement Cristiano Ronaldo and Leonel Messi are sweating to equal.
The group of Ghanaian graduates is currently undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma in Education course at the Firat University, Elazig, Turkey.
The students who are proud of the achievement of the Ghana skipper and successes he’s chalked in his football career could not hold but to join in the celebration of the 32-year-old legend.
The Black Stars record scorer turned 32 today and marked the day in his base in the Kayseri with a massive birthday celebration with his Kayserispor teammates.
But the passionate Ghanaian students who itched to have joined the celebration could only express their love and passion for the Ghana star.
Gyan’s career has been absolutely remarkable with loads of cherishable moments. He started his professional career at age 18 with Ghana Premier League club Liberty Professionals and has gone on to feature for eight different teams – including Premier League side Sunderland.
He currently plays for Kayserispor in the Turkish Super Lig.
Asamoah Gyan is the country’s all-time leading scorer for the senior national team, having scored 52 goals in 98 appearances with his first coming on his debut against Somalia on 19 November 2003.
Gyan has appeared in three World Cups and has scored more goals (6) than any African player in the global showpiece.
In 2010 Gyan was voted BBC African Footballer of year, only to miss out on the CAF award to Samuel Eto’o.
He is the only player to win UAE Pro League Top Scorer three times in a row plus AFC Champions League Top Scorer and 201AFC Foreign Player of the Year.
Gyan also scored at the 2017 AFCON to become Ghana’s all-time top scorer at the AFCON, beating deputy skipper Andre Ayew and Osei Kofi to the feat.
