Kayserispor forward Asamoah Gyan has spoken about his time at Sunderland and why he left in 2012.

Signed in 2010 from Rennes, the Ghana captain became a hit in the Premier League after scoring memorable goals but surprisingly left just two years later to join Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates.

While admitting that he may have left the Stadium of Light prematurely, Gyan spoke very highly of the club’s supporters and made it clear he loved his time in English football.

“I enjoyed every single minute there. It’s one of my proudest moments in life to have played at such a great club in such a unique football country. Sometimes I feel that I left early but maybe that’s what fate had in store for me,” he told FourFourTwo.

“The fans were unbelievable through thick and thin. Day and night, they’d travel to see us play. Man, it was something else.”
