Gyan: No regrets over rapid exit
Wednesday 09 November 2011
Asamoah Gyan says he has no regrets about leaving Sunderland and the Premier League and says his arrival in the United Arab Emirates can help boost football in the Middle East.
The self-assured 25-year-old Ghana international striker had an acrimonious parting from Sunderland in August when he went out on loan to Al-Ain.
The Sunderland manager, Steve Bruce, was furious at the time, saying that 48 hours before saying he wanted to leave, Gyan had shaken his hand and told him he was staying at the club.
Bruce said "parasites" had turned his head over a big money move to the club in Abu Dhabi, but Gyan said: "I'm really enjoying myself. It's really working out well for me and I'm really happy for now. I have no regrets at all about leaving Sunderland."
