[Asamoah Gyan on criticism of his move to China’s Shanghai SIPG] I don’t understand the criticism, I work hard for what I earn. It is not as if I am doing anything illegal or robbing people of their money. At the end of my career, people will not criticise me anymore. They will move on to the next person. And at the end of my career the most important thing will be how well I did for myself, my family and those closest to me. This time is my era so I have to make sure I make the most of it

[Asamoah Gyan talks about his missed penalty kick in the quarter-finals against Uruguay at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa] Sometimes things happen in the game and you face a lot of the ups and downs but it is something you cannot change. I am always trying to be a better man and sometimes when I’m alone in my room, I just think about all these things. I wish it could be rewound but it has happened. It’s going to live with me for the rest of my life. Something can happen like it again and I can redeem myself or maybe my son or nephew is going to do it in the future and you might never know. But if it doesn’t happen like that then I’m going to live with it for the rest of my life

[Asamoah Gyan tells about the experience of missing his penalty kick against Uruguay in the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ quarter-finals] Till today, any time alone, it still haunts me. Sometimes I feel like the world should go back again so I can redeem myself, but I know this is something that will haunt me for the rest of my life. I accept that because there is nothing I can do about it. I went there to save my country, but I ended up being the villain, which I accept because I know how people feel. It was a disaster. It was crazy. I was also calm because I couldn’t sleep the whole night because I was crying the whole night until morning, so I was somehow calm because I couldn’t cry anymore. All I was telling myself was to get another chance because I knew I could redeem myself even if not football, something else. But even if I don’t, my kids will do it one day
