BBC African Footballer of the Year 2010: Gyan deserves his crown!

A Ghanaian tradition goes on
Abedi Pele was the first African to win the BBC honors in 1992. Samuel Osei Kufuour made Ghana proud in 2001. Michael Essien continued the tradition. Today, we celebrate with Sunderland’s Asamoah ‘The Baby Jet’ Gyan as football lovers who listen to the BBC have conferred on him, the coveted title of BBC African Footballer of the Year for 2010.

A crown well deserved
Gyan pushed Ghana to the finals of the African Nations Cup 2010 with three important goals. With Gyan as forward, Ghana went past African giants, Ivory Coast and Nigeria as well as host nation Angola into the finals of the Nations cup in January 2010.

With such form, the ‘Baby Jet’ took Ghana to the world cup. His brilliant strike against the United States will go down as one of the most celebrated goals in Africa. Even though he literally took Ghana out with a quarter final penalty miss, the Sunderland forward’s contribution to what will be considered as Ghana’s best football year since 1982 (when Ghana won the Nations Cup) cannot be overemphasized.

At club level, the striker may have started slowly at Sunderland this season, but his potential role in the team has already been settled as he scored on his debute. Already, he has contributed 5 goals with 2 assists to the Black Cats’ course in his 13 appearances, only 2 shy from their most consistent forward Darren Bent.

13 goals out of a total 17 appearances for club and country speaks volumes of Gyan’s performance this year and there is little surprise that today, the dancing forward has been duly recognized. Continue reading ‘BBC African Footballer of the Year 2010: Gyan deserves his crown!’

CHRISTOPHER OPOKU ASKS: WHO WINS THE RACE FOR GHANA’S HOTTEST FOOTBALL JOB?

From the moment the 5-man shortlist for the Black Stars coaching job was made public by the Ghana Football Association on Monday, a lot of discussions have been done on the issue as per the most suited person to succeed Milovan Rajevac as the Ghana coach. Rajevac was himself rumoured to be on the shortlist until the official announcement put that particular story to rest. So, for the next two weeks or so, until the interviews are done and the coach named, there will undoubtedly be a lot of analysis, debate and discussion on the best man for the job and yours truly is now joining the fray to give an opinionated view on the issue.

Let me start by saying that I probably would not have chosen any of the shortlisted coaches because I felt we could have done better. Personally, I was hoping that Milovan Rajevac could be brought back to handle the team, given his achievements during his two year stay here. I know some of you will take umbrage at my comments, but lets get real for once. The man’s contract run out on August 18th and he coached the Black Stars in the 2012 African Nations Cup qualifier against Swaziland in early September when he was out of contract. He may have given his word, but the naked truth is that the days when ‘your word is your bond’ are well and truly a long way behind us now. The authorities couldn’t arrive at an agreement with him and he decided to go after a double-your-money deal in Saudi Arabia. Had he been secured before the end of the World Cup, we will all be happily looking forward to the next qualifier in March without the headache of choosing a new coach. The fact is that he did not sign a new contract; his existing contract had expired and he saw an opportunity and grabbed it. He may not have done well so far in Saudi Arabia, but can anyone tell me that he would have snubbed an estimated $110,000 a month when in principle, he was due to get an estimated $66,000 a month and yet the government had yet to officially approve it? I think it is time we all stopped being hypocritical in the name of sentiment and faced facts. Having said all this, he did not make the shortlist and so we have to move on to the ones named.
