Asamoah Gyan, a Ghanaian legend, has admitted that his team slaughtered sheep and fortified themselves at a shrine before games in Turkey and India.
The 36-year-old is currently without a club after leaving Legon Cities in the Ghana Premier League at the end of last season.
Gyan, who is on a radio tour ahead of his book launch on April 30, has revealed a top secret about ‘Juju’ in football during his time abroad.
The former Udinese striker previously played for Kayserispor in Turkey and NorthEast United in India.
Asamoah Gyan, who has witnessed several superstitious practices during his football career, believes that giving back to society reigns supreme.
In an interview with Angel FM, the former Sunderland striker revealed that his club used to slaughter sheep in Turkey, whereas in India, players are taken to a shrine before the season begins.
“My juju is all about doing good for others. That is assisting the needy.”
“I will encourage everyone to do good.” Help people; their words have a big impact on your life, and these things help men become successful.”
“The strangest thing I saw in Europe was when I went to Turkey.” “They slaughter a sheep in front of the bus before a game, then in India, before the league season starts, they take us to the shrine for fortification,” he explained.
Gyan is Ghana’s all-time leading scorer, with 51 goals in 109 matches.
He has represented Ghana in three World Cup tournaments, in 2006, 2010, and 2014.
With six World Cup goals, he has surpassed Cameroon legend Rodger Milla’s goal against Portugal in 2014 to become the African with the most goals.
