He was born Asamoah Gyan. His prodigious nature earned him ‘Baby Jet.’ Now his goals has led to a new name: Mr. 100.
Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has scored 100 goals since moving to the United Arab Emirates.
His side Al Ain played Al Jazira in the first leg of the Asian Champions League (ACL) quarter final, and Gyan scored in his team’s 2-1 win.
Gyan, 28, has broken several records along the way to scoring a century of goals in 92 competitive games since leaving Sunderland in 2011.
Ghana will certainly hope Mr. 100 gets his fire going during the World Cup, where he is already Ghana’s highest scorer.
In the Asian Champions League in which he scored, Gyan is also top scorer with eight goals in seven games this season. As it stands, Gyan and his team are on course in their quest to win the competition 11 years since they last did.
Gyan, who is on 41 goals in 39 games in all competitions this season, received further good news on Wednesday morning as news came through that he had headlined nominations for the AGL International Player of the Year.
