Togo captain Emmanuel Adebayor has hailed Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan for being consistent in the last twelve years.
Gyan last Saturday made history as he became Ghana’s all time AFCON scorer with eight goals after his goal against Mali sent Ghana through to the quarter finals of the ongoing competition.
The Black Stars Skipper also holds the record as the highest scoring African player at the World Cup.
“I think everyone knows Asamoah Gyan. He’s not a friend but a brother [because] I know everyone in his family and that shows how close we are,” Adebayor told Metro TV.
“Sometimes, people forget who we were [as players] and what we have done in our careers and just think about yesterday. They don’t remember what you have done ten years ago.”
“If Gyan has played in three separate World Cup editions that means he has been consistent in the last twelve years and a lot of big players have not done that in their careers so hats down for Asamoah Gyan.
“He should keep scoring goals and not stop now because he has got a lot couple of years ahead. He should keep making Ghana and Africa proud and we are proud of him.”
