Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan is already counting the days to the historic night when he will conferred with a doctorate degree from the Alfred Nobel University.

The on-loan Al Ahli striker is set to be awarded by the highly rated Ukrainian University for his overall contributions to football in Ghana and worldwide.

Gyan has been involved in so many social projects, including funding the construction of an Astroturf pitch for his alma mater, Accra Academy Senior High School.

The 31-year-old's exploits have therefore been duly recognized by the Alfred Nobel University, who want to award the striker with a Gold doctorate degree.

The Black Stars captain is also in line to be awarded as the Honorary Personality of Exemplary Leadership by the same university.

If conferred with the doctorate degree, he will now be known as Dr. Asamoah Gyan, and the striker insists he cannot wait to be honored.

"It's good somebody is out there recognizing what I'm doing. I feel honored [by this gesture]. Before, I thought I was just doing it for God, but human beings on this earth have also recognized it.

"I feel honored, and I can't wait for the day [I will be honored as Dr. Asamoah Gyan]," he told the media after inspecting the progress of the Astroturf pitch at Accra Academy.

"It [the honor] will urge me to do more. Like you just called me a Dr. [Asamoah Gyan], I can't wait [to be honored].

The former Sunderland attacker, however, admits that such an honor will bring pressure on him, but believes it will only encourage him to do more.

"Definitely there will be more pressure because people will be expecting me to do more. But I think it's a good pressure, it encourages you to do more," Gyan said.

"So I started it, and I'm just praying to the Almighty God to give me long life to help mankind. Because I always try to help the community as best as I can."

Gyan will now join an illustrious list of Ghanaians, including the likes of Dr. Osei Kwame Despite, Rev. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh and President Akuffo-Addo who have been honored with doctorate degrees by the Alfred Nobel University.

The honorary event will be held at the Faculty of Law of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) on the 8th of July, 2017.
