Asamoah Gyan has been honoured with a statue in Kumasi in recognition of his services for the West African nation.

According to Ghanaweb, the sculptor who designed former Chelsea midfielder Essien's statue, erected another for the Black Stars captain to honour him as the country's all-time top goalscorer, with 52 goals.

Gyan is one of the most celebrated Ghana players of all-time, after featuring in three World Cups and six Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.

The 32-year old's statue comes after Essien, who made 256 appearances at Stamford Bridge for Chelsea between 2005 and 2014, was honoured with his own in his homeland.
