I want to leave a legacy in India football - Asamoah Gyan

Legendary Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is determined to leave a legacy in the Indian Super League after a good start to his career in the Asian country.

The 34-year old forward, has already bagged in three goals in six games and believes there is more to come as he tries to build a legacy in India.

Having been criticized for the move to India, Gyan insists his move to the ISL could pave the way for other big stars to join him.

“That is what I want to do, leave a legacy," he told Hindustan Times. "When I moved to China (Shanghai SPIG in 2015), there was a lot of criticism, but now a lot of good players are moving there," he added.

"And I hope me being in India can open doors to more players. Because the league is getting stronger. But if somebody regards me degrading the league than we are not helping the league.”

Gyan, Ghana's all time leading scorer joined the ISL side in the summer after a disappointing Nations Cup with the Black Stars.

Despite the country's round of 16 exit, Gyan says he will be available for the Black Stars any time he is needed.

“When the time comes and I am available, why not? I am available for Ghana right now,” he says.
