I’ve been unlucky with ‘situations’ in Turkey, says Asamoah Gyan


The Black Stars skipper hopes to have an improved performance in the second half of the Turkish league after a slow start

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has admitted he has been ‘terrible’ this season after joining Turkish Super Lig side Kayserispor.

The 32-year-old has been struggling with injuries, making only five appearances and lasting 171 minutes with only a goal under his belt.

“I got [other] offers from Turkey before Kayserispor,” Gyan told Anadolu Agency .

“Over 20 managers called me. It was Kayserispor who convinced me.
“The first half of the season was unlucky for me but I’m working very hard for the second half.

“Our team did a very good job in the first half. We have a very good technical director, a good understanding of tactics [and] a very important place.”

“We have a great president. They have supported me since the day I arrived.
“What is important to me is not how you started, but how it ends. Some things are too early to talk about, let’s see how I finish, not how I began,” he added.

Gyan last scored a goal for Kayserispor in October against Fernebeche. He lasted 67 minutes in the 2-0 victory over Antalyaspor on Thursday after Silvestre Verela replaced him.

Kayserispor currently sit fifth on the log, tied with Besiktas on 30 points.
