Asamoah Gyan: Abedi Ayew Pele is Ghana's greatest footballer of all time

​Ghana international Asamoah Gyan has revealed that Abedi Ayew Pele is his personal greatest footballer in history of Ghanaian footballers. 

The three-time African Footballer of the Year holder was reportedly the player that Gyan idolised growing up and further cited that his unqiue flair was what he wanted to emulate as an aspiring player. 

"When I was growing up, Abedi was someone we all looked up to, he was playing the best of footballs in the country and there’s no doubt, he is incomparable,” he told Kwaku Manu on the “Aggressive Interview”.

“He is the greatest Ghanaian footballer of all time with his style of play.”

Gyan has been tipped one of Ghana's top footballers following his contributions to the Black Stars across all international competitions.

The 33-year-old also boasts as Ghana's all-time leading goalscorer as well as Africa's at the Fifa World Cup.

The 54-year-old Pele won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1982 and was noted as Ghana's last player to win the Player of the Year award for his exploits. 

The father of footballers Andre and Jordan Ayew played in over 73 games for his native and scored approximately 33 goals in his international career.
