Gyan Shanghai

Tough-talking Ghanaian football administrator, Takyi Arhin has lashed out at super striker Asamoah Gyan over his imminent move to Chinese side Shanghai SIPG.

The 29-year-old has arrived in the Asian country to complete his move to the ambitious side after spending four years at Al Ain.

Gyan, the captain of the Ghana national team, who is on a $250,000 weekly sum at the UAE side, is set to earn a staggering $350,000 weekly at the Chinese side.

The former Sunderland hitman has insisted his move to Shanghai SIPG is not influenced by money as he seeks a fresh challenge.

But controversial football administrator Takyi Arhin is unconvinced and criticizeD him for the move.

?Football is not all about money. Gyan left Sunderland and joined Al Ain. Now, he is off to China. What is the pedigree of Chinese football and the Chinese league? He quizzed on Accra-based Atinka FM

?Someone needs to tell Gyan that as the Captain of the Black Stars, he should stop chasing money and think about Ghana.?

During his triumphant spell Al Ain, the club won three AGL trophies, the 2013/14 President?s Cup and 2012 Arabian Gulf Super Cup. He was top scorer in the 2014 AFC Champions League as he fired Zlatko Dalic?s men to the semi-finals for the first time in nine years.

But signs of age catching up with Gyan emerged last term. A lingering quadriceps problem restricted him to just 12 league starts, the Boss still being able to go on in his regular absences to win the title by nine points.

He now continues the summer flood of elite talent to the big-spending Chinese top flight.
