Asamoah Gyan is better than Messi and Ronaldo – Yaya Mohammed

What Asamoah Gyan is doing here in Ghana is far better than that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Yaya Mohammed claims

The debate about the best footballer in the world gets heated always with fans making their point on why either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi should be the number one.

But when it comes to the two best players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi get the nod.

Ghanaian player Yaya Mohammed however thinks otherwise. The Aduana Stars midfielder believes Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan is better that World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Ashh FM, Yaya Mohammed said:


“What Asamoah Gyan is doing here in Ghana is far better than that of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. But sadly we don’t respect him because he is a Ghanaian.

“I shall always rate Asamoah Gyan ahead of the two because if Gyan had been an European, he would have been highly recognized than the two. So why don’t I respect my own and help him to spurt on? We must begin to respect our own.

“Looking at their developments, Gyan did not even play an academy but Messi has been with Barcelona since infancy and Ronaldo has been with Sporting Lisbon Academy in Portugal before joining the senior side and subsequently to Manchester United.”

“So if Gyan had even played an academy and gotten the opportunities they have, Gyan would have been devastating by now.”

Asamoah Gyan has been on great scoring form in his career and currently holds the title for and African with the most goals at a FIFA World Cup.
