My brother predicted my greatness – Asamoah Gyan reveals

Former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has shared a touching anecdote about his brother Baffour Gyan’s unwavering belief in his potential for greatness in football.

Baffour, the trailblazer in the Gyan family’s football journey, carved out a career as a professional footballer and proudly represented the Black Stars.

Asamoah followed in his brother’s footsteps, eventually joining him in the national team. Together, they competed in the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), where Ghana secured third place on home soil.

Reflecting on their journey, Asamoah disclosed how Baffour consistently voiced his conviction in Asamoah’s abilities during interviews, even when others doubted.

“When my brother Baffour Gyan was a striker in the national team, the first interview he made was with Saanie Daara at Choice FM, and they asked him this same question, and he said, his brother is coming up,” Gyan said on GTV Sports Plus.

“I was at school, and people were just bashing him. They asked him that same question again, and he still said my younger brother is coming, and people kept bashing him, but here am I now,” he added.

Now both retired, Asamoah and Baffour have left indelible marks on Ghanaian football, with Asamoah holding the record as the country’s leading goal scorer with 51 goals and Africa’s top scorer in World Cup history.
