Asamoah Gyan named Sports Writers Footballer of the Year

Asamoah Gyan has been awarded Sports

Writers Association of Ghana Men's

Footballer of the Year.

The Al Ain forward's scoring feat last year in

the African World Cupqualifying series and for

his United Arab Emirates side made him the

obvious winner.

His statistics were too much for Italy-based

duo and international teammates Kwadwo

Asamoah and Sulley Ali Muntari.

He was not at the function as he prepares to

face Al Ahli in the final of the UAE President's

Cup on Sunday.

His father Gyan Baffour Mensah and Chief

Executive Officer of his foundation Samuel

Anim Addo received the award on his behalf.

Gyan was in contention for the prestigious

Personality of the Year Award but was beaten

to it by his national team coach Kwesi Appiah.
