Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer, Asamoah Gyan was in action for his NorthEast United club on Saturday but unfortunately could not last the full length after picking up an injury in the first half.
The former Sunderland FC striker secured a transfer to the Indian Super League side during the summer transfer window after partying ways with Kayserispor upon the expiry of his contract.
Since his arrival at NorthEast United, the former Black Stars captain has been phenomenal and managed to score 3 goals in 6 matches for the side prior to this weekend’s match.
In a match week 7 fixture against ATK in the Indian top-flight, Asamoah Gyan was handed another starting role to help his team fight for the 3 points at stake.
Sadly he only lasted 9 minutes of the game and was forced off after picking up a thigh injury through a collision with the opposition’s goalkeeper. His team ended up losing the game by three goals to nothing at the end of the 90 minutes.
Though the extent of the injury is unknown yet, everyone at NorthEast United is hoping their striker is able to recover before their next game.
Gyan, 34, is expected to undergo further tests on Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
