Ex-Ghana international, Christian Gyan, who played for Feyenoord and Wrexham has sadly passed on at the age of 43.


The FIFA U17 World Cup winner died after losing his battle with cancer.





Gyan who was also known as “Atta Rasta” died on Wednesday morning at a hospital in Netherlands where he has been living for most of his years.

Aged 43, Gyan was a member of the Ghana squad that won Gold at the FIFA U17 World Cup in Ecuador.










Gyan signed for Feyenoord Rotterdam in 1996. During the following season he was sent on loan to Excelsior.


After only a couple of months Feyenoord recalled the defender, and he made his debut for Feyenoord that same season.







Gyan remained with Feyenoord for the next eight seasons where he became a “Cult Hero” after emerging to be fans favourite.







The former Black Stars defender played in the 2002 UEFA Cup Final against Borussia Dortmund with Feyenoord winning 3-2 in the end.

Gyan also won a Dutch League Championship and a Johan Cruijff Schaal with Feyenoord during his time.






In September 2017 supporters of Feyenoord collected an amount of €35,000 for him to support his medical bills during an Dutch Eredivisie match between Feyenoord and NAC Breda.






Gyan played 23 matches for the Ghana senior national team.
