“When I started, no one knew who Asamoah Gyan was. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my brother. He’s the one behind my success,” Asamoah Gyan added.

Gyan also reiterated his desire to see future generations inspired by his experiences, which have been recounted comprehensively in ‘LeGyandary.’

The President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Okraku described Gyan as “uniquely unique” in his speech, commending him for his service to the country.

“Thank you for your service and the life you brought to Ghana. Baby Jet has, at all times, sacrificed to ensure our country is great and strong,” he said.

“You brought life and hope to people. To be a legend is not easy and keeping that legendary status is also difficult. Baby Jet has [shown us the way].”

Speaking on behalf of the President, the Tourism Minister, Dr Ibrahim Awal urged Asamoah Gyan to “use his experiences to promote Ghana” and named him an ambassador for the government’s “Beyond the Return” programme.

“It’s important to revere the dead but it’s even more important to celebrate the living,” he added, while praising Gyan for his esteemed career.

After the launch, special copies of the books were auctioned.

The first couple of copies were purchased to GHS100,000 each by the Chairman for the event, Ernest Ofori Sarpong and the MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.

There were also citations from Gyan – read by the General Secretary of the Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) – in honour of Sly Tetteh, J.E Sarpong and Cecil Jones Attuquayefio.
