Gyan not in his ‘best shape’

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan says he is yet to hit top form despite scoring two goals in three games for his new club Al Ahli Dubai and helping them to clinch the Arabian Super Cup.

The 30-year-old, after a botched move to English Championship side Reading, joined the Arabian Gulf League side from Shanghai SIPG in a season-long loan deal.

“I’m not in my best shape, but at least I got a goal. It’s very important for me. My condition is getting better compared to the other two games I played. So it’s a step for me,” Gyan was quoted as saying by the Nationale.

“It’s good for a striker to be scoring. I’m more experienced. I know the league very well, so being on the scoresheet gives me confidence and hope to continue.

“I always enjoy it. As I said before, I’m happy to play here and I’m happy to play under a coach I feel comfortable with, so it’s a good thing. I’m playing with happiness now,” he added.

Ahli are currently leading the league with three points and will travel to face Al Nasr at Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium on Thursday.
