Ghana’s all-time top scorer, Asamoah Gyan, has explained why he always describe 2010 as the best year of his stunning football career.
The legendary striker was arguably one of the best performers in the world after his performances for both his country and club during the year in question. Gyan was named the BBC African Footballer of the Year in 2010 while also making CAF’s Team of the Year.
Gyan was key to the Black Stars playing in the quarterfinal of the 2010 World Cup where they were eventually kicked out by Uruguay on penalties.
Quizzed on the best year of his career, the former Sunderland man told DStv, “2010 was my best year. It started in January from Angola in the Africa Cup.”
“I went back to my club scoring goals, I was fit so going to the World Cup I was confident – the most confident player in the world. I felt very good, everything was working. I came to music and music was working. Everything was working for me in 2010 so going there I knew I was going to deliver.”
With the World being held in Africa for the first time in that year, Gyan, who scored three goals in South Africa, believes it is the best global showpiece he has seen.
“I think 2010 World Cup was the best World Cup for me,” he noted.
“It’s the most organised World Cup. Everything was fun because it was in Africa for the first time. People wanted to see what Africans can do, people had to fly all over the world to come to Africa. It brought people together. The organisation was excellent and you could see the real culture.
“Everything was amazing. For me, it was the greatest World Cup I’ve ever seen.”
Gyan has been out of action for close to two years after leaving Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities at the end of the 2020/21 season.
