Black Stars captain nabs no. 3 jersey at Al Ahli

Gyan has been wearing the number three shirt since his days at Liberty in Ghana and has identified with it throughout his playing career

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has been handed his favourite No.3 jersey on his return to the gulf, where he has signed a one-year loan deal with Al Ahli.

The former Shanghai SIPG star was initially handed the jersey number 90 moments after landing a season loan deal with the Garden City club.

But the former Sunderland striker has now been handed his favourite number 3 shirt.

Gyan has been wearing his iconic nuumber 3 jersey since his days at Liberty in Ghana and has identified with it throughout his playing career.

He attained a legendary status during his four-year spell with the Garden Club, where he scored 128 goals in 123 matches to secure a number of major honours.

His 95 goals in 83 league matches from 2011-15 helped Al Ain clinch three top-flight titles. Gyan won three GoldenBoot awards and scored the winner in the 2014 President’s Cup final against Ahli.
