13th Aug 2014 Hi there and welcome,
Fisrt off, we gather Ghana’s Black Star Asamoah Gyan is now Africa’s highest paid sportsman.
According to The Magazine’s Money Issue salary survey project, Gyan has overtaken Samuel Eto’o of Cameroon and Manchester City’s Yaya Toure and will make $16 million annual profit from his salaries, wages and endorsements as well his private businesses.
Gyan who moved from English Premier League side Sunderland in September 2013 to Al Ain in the UAE for a record loan fee now earns more than Manchester City and Ivory Coast star Yaya Toure who has an annual aggregate of $15.4 million.
He joins the top ranks of Togo star Emmanuel Adebayor who at the moment earns roughly $13.3 million, while three-time African Footballer of the Year Samuel Eto’o earns a little over $13million annually.
Chai! There is God o!
