Former Ghanaian national team captain Asamoah Gyan asserts he shared a special telepathic bond with Kwadwo Asamoah.
The celebrated attacker claimed that when they were both on the field, they frequently conversed with Asamoah.
Three of the midfielders he played with for the Black Stars, Sulley Muntari, Laryea Kingston, and Stephen Appiah, according to Gyan, believed in his abilities on the pitch.
“My teammates trusted me. When you are in a team where your teammates trust you, it makes things easier,” he said on Soccer Chat on GHOne TV.
“They know you have pace so they don’t even look when they are giving you a pass. They just try to put the ball behind the opponent’s defence and they know you can get it.”
“Although Kwadwo Asamoah was playing behind me, the communication was there. He was like a number 10 so he knew every movement I was making.
“There were others too. Sulley Muntari, Laryea Kingston and Stephen Appiah. All of them knew my movements so when passing the ball to me they did not need to look.”
With 51 goals, Gyan tops all scorers in Ghana. He also has six World Cup goals, which puts him in first place in Africa.
The former Sunderland forward advised young strikers to continually try to interact with their midfielders, which is a great advice.
“When you’re going into a game, call the midfielders and tell them how you want the ball to be placed for you.
“At least one to two of such chances might work. If you do not communicate before the game, things may go wrong during the game,” he added.
