The Portuguese coach made this acknowledgement when he was presented with the jersey of the Black Stars captain in the aftermath of his side’s 2-2 draw with Al Ain in the Champions League match played last week.
Gyan was on target in that game played in Tabriz to finish off the tie against the Iranian club with a hat trick of goals after scoring twice in the reverse encounter in Al Ain.
The Ghana captain is joint leading scorer in this season’s continental club competition with five goals as he looks to power his side into the knockout stages.
