In July 2010, Asamoah Gyan had the chance to join football immortality – and missed it. The scars of that World Cup penalty will remain for years. Remarkably, it does not define him.
Instead, drawing strength from his difficult career beginnings, Gyan will go on to become a history-making Ghana captain – breaking record after record for club and country along the way.
Yet, the quest for greatness sees Gyan make some costly mistakes, which he recounts in sobering detail. He owns up to them, sharing how they affected his family and career, as well as lessons learned.
What was said in dressing rooms across his storied career? How did he handle the mysterious disappearance of his friend Castro and other scandals? What are his plans after football?
In this book, Gyan bares his soul. He seeks no sympathy; he simply wants his side of an often-one-sided story to be heard, introducing us to names, people and influences we did not know before.
LeGyanDary is not only for football fanatics. It is written to challenge those who fear their dreams, to empathize with the misunderstood, and to start a conversation about how we treat our icons – for good, and for bad.
