Asamoah Gyan, Al Ain win Arabian Gulf League title

The former Sunderland striker has won another medal after helping Al Ain to win the league title in UAE

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan continues to win titles in the UAE after powering Al Ain to win the 2014/2015 Arabian Gulf League title, with three matches to spare.

The Boss lead the league log with a healthy 10-point advantage ahead of realistic contenders Al Jazira. This means, Al Ain can afford to lose the remaining three matches and still finish the season unscathed.

Gyan was as on target on Thursday night as Al Ain walloped Al Ittihad Kalba 4-0 to remain on course. However, Al Jazira needed a win badly on Friday to restore the seven-point deficit behind Al Ain, but their 1-0 defeat to Al Wahda left them with no hope as Zlatko Dalic’s side are set to be crowned champions for the 12th time.

Baby Jet, as he is popularly known, has now won three league titles in his four seasons in the UAE top-flight. The 29-year-old, despite winning a team award, is set to miss out on his trademark goal king accolade since he is on 13 goals, 11 behind Al Jazira’s Mirko Vucinic with three more matches to go.

The former Rennes player has won that award in the last three seasons since making a switch from England to the UAE.

Gyan has been highly decorated during his adventure in the Gulf Region, having won the UAE President’s Cup and the Arabian Gulf Super Cup, aside the three league titles.
