Sunderland to work on Gyan fitness level

Posted On Wednesday, 24th August 2011

Asamoah Gyan needs to be fully fit

Sunderland are considering bringing in a striker on loan though the manager has faith that Asamoah Gyan will find top form for the north-east club this season.

Gyan has scored 10 goals in 33 appearances for Sunderland since signing for the club this time last year.

Manager Steve Bruce has started the striker in both of the Black Cat’s matches this season, but Gyan is yet to find the net.

Bruce believes that once the Ghana international gets back to full fitness, he will find his form for the side and prove his worth in the starting line-up.

”With Asa, I don’t think his fitness levels are quite right yet. I don’t think he is up to speed with it quite yet,” Bruce said.

“If you remember he had six weeks off at the back end of last season, so he has had twice as long as everyone else off.

“We have identified that, we have looked at him and we know something is not quite firing yet.”

  4. sex says:

    steve bruce is a very funny guy. He doesn’t recognize that he is a major problem i mean take a at his midfield especially catermole who created the goal against newcastle , can he actually tell us how many clear cut chances were created for asamoah . When gyan plays for Ghana we all see the number of chances he gets but honestly in sunderland he barely gets any shooting oppourtunity

  5. Don says:

    I said it.dis guy is not top notch.An overated guy who just scores one goal n the whole ghana media praises him.bent carried de sunderland team on him bt gyan continuously misses the chances presented.dis guy is no longer young,he is about the same age with rooney so one cannot say he is young so he will learn.i visited a sunderland blog and most of the fans could not believe they wasted 13 million pounds on dis average guy.

    • Fu-Chu says:

      @ Don I agree with you. He is an average striker at best. I mean a whole professional not knowing how to keep fit? I have no idea why the Ghanaian media treats him like a “King.”

      • nameless says:

        I also agree with you, Don. Ghana really needs to develop strikers. We need a few more Gyans OR one Drogba or Eto. We really need more goals. If we had really good offense, it would be nice to have Gyan as a reserve player(Lets face it, most teams would be glad to have Gyan on their team, but as a reserve rather than the main striker). Maybe Dede and Jordan could be groomed to play up front and help Gyan. Also, I think the “fitness” level being discussed is a different level of fitness than we think, and it includes the ability to concentrate and react in good time, which can only be maintained with adequate playing time. Merely staying in good physical shape isn’t goint to cut it.

    • Nii Kwatei says:

      You’re so right my brother. I really don’t believe that he is the one who will take us to the WC final in 2014. He is average, not great. And we neeed young fresh players to be called up as soon as possible like Jordan Ayew and Kingsley Boateng from AC Milan.
      Why don’t the GFA arrange an extra friendly match just for our future black stars-material to play. Then we make sure that the likes of Frimpong’s, Kingsley’s wil be tied to Ghana and we get the opportunity to watch them play!

  7. Fabs says:

    Ghanaweb please write correct reports, Gyan did not start he came on as a sub. Gyan is not on form, but Bruce is a crap manager, how can all the strikers not score….People can blame Gyan but it’s not even the case that he is missing easy chances, the team isn’t creating the chances…..Sunderland will struggle as long as Bruce stays there.

  8. Prettytony says:

    Instead of this boy working on his goal scoring problems, he was dancing in clips and touring with castro when the season ended.Lets face it,Blackstar team created more chances than all it opponents in the last two world cups but how many goals did Gyan score?,he had to rely on penalties..Oh Ghana, we have a musician as our number one striker

    • Fu-Chu says:

      @Prettytony you have articulated it well my brother. Asamoah Gyan is a very average striker. Dede Ayew and Jordan Ayew should team up at the top and Ghanaians will be very surprised. Gyan can come off the bench in my humble opinion.

  9. loe says:

    what is going on there with that striker

  10. Experience Coach says:

    This is what I know. Asamoah Gyan is a natural winger (number 7). The reason I’m saying this is because he is good when facing opponents with the ball; therefore, playing somebody like that as a striker gives you only a fifty-fifty chance in scoring. He must be utilized as a winger, then Dede would play as an attacking midfielder (number 10) and Jordan will play as the striker (number 9). The coach should let Adomah player number 11 position (pls call Abeyie to be his sub).

    This is the best attacking front Ghana should deploy. I bet you there will be so many goals.

  11. Experience Coach says:

    My opinion selection for Ghana:

    ******************A. Kwarasey ***************
    (Sub-Kingson)

    ****************4-Vorsah***5-Jonathan Mensah******
    (Nana Asare) (John Mensah)

    2-Opare*******************************3-David Addy
    (Pantsil) (Inkoom)

    ***************6-Derek Boateng*****************
    (Frimpong-Arsenals or A. Badu)

    ***8-Kwadwo Asamoah**********10-Dede Ayew**********
    (I. Ayew) (Adiyiah)

    7-Asamoah Gyan************************11-Adomah
    (Abeyie) (O. Agyeman)

    ****************9-Jordan Ayew**********************
    (Tagoe)

  12. Watever says:

    Who is to blame, the ghanaian media or gyan? Truth be told, gyan is not a natural born goal porcher like ransford osei, sadick adams. The FA needs to follow the development of such talents when they are discovered and make sure they are on the right path. Now S. Adams and R. Osei are not even called for national assignments instead they keep calling Adiyah. And truth be told adiyah never be a better striker than this two

  13. starlish says:

    Its true asamoah had too much FUN in GH and that is realy affecting his form,we wish him all the best.
