Asamoah Gyan Reveals Secret Behind His Successes

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has attributed the successes in his football career to the eagle-eyed guidance from his elder brother Baffour. Baffour, the striker who played for Ghana�s national team in the early 2000s, has used his experiences to guide Asamoah to avoid the mistakes in his career. The former Greece-based attacker is regularly seen with Asamoah and has served as his personal coach by giving him tips from the stands during match. Baffour was also instrumental in Asamoah�s decision to return to the Black Stars and the UAE striker says the role played by his brother in his career cannot be quantified in monetary terms. �Baffuor has been my guardian angel. He has offered me some quality advice which has helped me a great deal as a footballer,� Gyan said. �He has done so much for me which cannot be quantified in monetary terms. �He has made sure I didn�t tow the line which would affect me negatively as a professional footballer, and I must say I am very grateful for that,� he added. Baffour had a 12-year spell in Europe with clubs like Dynamo Moscow, FC Saturn and Czech side Slovan Liberec. He returned in 2009 to play for Asante Kotoko.
