Al Ain coach tasks Gyan to extend record-breaking form
Al Ain coach Cosmin Olaroiu has challenged Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan to extend his great domestic form beyound the UAE top flight.
Gyan is now the all-time leading scorer in the UAE Pro-League after scoring his 29th and 30th goal respectively on Sunday night to better the 14-year record set by Albouri Lah during his time with Al Wahda.
The Ghanaian bagged a brace in Al Ain’s 2-2 draw with Bani Yas on Sunday night to take his Pro League tally this season to 30 goals.
However, despite his domestic dominance, the former Sunderland ace has struggled in continental competition and scored just once in four AFC Champions League appearances this year.
Coach Olaroiu now expects Gyan to replicate his sizzling form beyoung the domestic league.
“For me it is important that Asamoah Gyan breaks the record in all competitions,” said Olaroiu.
“Congratulations to him, but I want him to be at the same level in all competitions, that is my wish.”
Al Ain’s Romanian coach felt his side had paid the price for having to play for so long with only 10 men.
