EXTRA TIME: Asamoah Gyan honoured with bizarre statue in Ghana

The Black Stars skipper has been served his own fair share of the cake by the same sculptor who honoured Essien with an abysmal art of design

Asamoah Gyan joins Michael Essien, Cristiano Ronaldo in the list of footballers who have been honoured with questionable statues.

It was revealed that Gyan’s statue was built to honour him as Ghana’s all-time leading topscorer with 52 goals.

The Kayserispor forward has featured in three World Cup and six African Cup of Nations tournaments since he made his debut at the age of 17 against Somalia in November 2003.

Though the statue shows the talisman’s trademark hairstyle, it appears that his head and shoulder looks bigger than the rest of the body.

Even with this major difference, it seems the 32-year-old is pleased with the art of design as he posed for a picture with it.
