Shanghai SIPG forward Asamoah Gyan says the Chinese Super League is picking up with other leagues despite getting criticized for  his transfer move to China.

The Black Stars captain moved from English Premier League team Sunderland to join Arabian Gulf League side Al Ain, a transfer move that Gyan got a lot of stick for.

The criticism for the 30-year-old reignited after he moved to China from Al Ain but Gyan feels with a lot of top stars moving to the Chinese Super League, the football world should expect more surprises from China.

Gyan in an interview with Joy Sports said:

“I said it before that I might bring exposure to that league, I went to the UAE, it was the same, lots of talks and criticisms when I moved there.

“But as I always say the top leagues started from somewhere and that is the same way the Chinese league is always picking up.

“Lots of players are coming in and I think next year it will be more and that we should expect more surprises next year but I believe the league in China is really getting better.”

Asamoah Gyan was called up by Avram Grant for Ghana’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against Mozambique during the international break.

The Black Stars captain however got injured during the last training session and missed both games for Ghana.
