Asamoah Gyan, former captain of the Ghana national team, claims he had a unique telepathic connection with Kwadwo Asamoah.
The seasoned forward claims that he and Asamoah used to talk a lot when they were both on the field.
Gyan said that Sulley Muntari, Laryea Kingston, and Stephen Appiah, three of the midfielders he played with in the Black Stars, had complete faith in him.
“My teammates trusted me. When you are in a team where your teammates trust you, it makes things easier,” he said on Soccer Chat on GHOne TV.
“They know you have pace so they don’t even look when they are giving you a pass. They just try to put the ball behind the opponent’s defence and they know you can get it.”
“Although Kwadwo Asamoah was playing behind me, the communication was there. He was like a number 10 so he knew every movement I was making.
“There were others too. Sulley Muntari, Laryea Kingston and Stephen Appiah. All of them knew my movements so when passing the ball to me they did not need to look.”
Gyan leads all Ghanaian scorers with 51 goals, and he also leads all of Africa in World Cup goals with six.
The former Sunderland player gave some sound advice to young attackers, saying that they should constantly make an effort to interact with their midfielders.
“When you’re going into a game, call the midfielders and tell them how you want the ball to be placed for you.
“At least one to two of such chances might work. If you do not communicate before the game, things may go wrong during the game,” he added.
