Footballers definitely have no luck with the statues erected in their honor. After those of Cristiano Ronaldo and Michael Essien, it is Asamoah Gyan who was entitled to a failed statue.
The captain of the black stars was honoured with a statue in the Ashanti region of Ghana, a gesture that aims to honor the attacker for his good works in the country. The attacker was even spotted with his statue. However, many of her fans say she does not look like him at all.
They think it was done by the same sculptor who erected the one of Michael Essien in Kumasi.
Gyan, 32, is one of the most famous players of all time in Ghana, having competed in three World Cups and six African Cup of Nations tournaments. He is also the top scorer of all time with 52 goals.
