Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has revealed he enjoys a ‘very good’ relationship with his club manager Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Gyan reunited with Swedish trainer earlier this year with his headline move to Chinese big-spenders Shanghai SIPG.

The move for Gyan was driven at the instance of Eriksson who Gyan claims tried to sign him earlier on in his career for Manchester City.

Both figures have now been presented with the chance to knock rivals Guangzhou Evergrande off their perch in Chinese football next season while they make a debut campaign on the Asian Champions League.

The Black Stars captain says he enjoys working under Eriksson who he regards as one of the best coaches in the world.

“I will say he has been a great fan since day one so he knows my capabilities and everything, therefore our relationship has been very good,” Gyan revealed.

“Talking about experience, he is one of the best, he has coached one of the best teams in the world and he has coached one of the best national teams in the world.

“So the experience is there but talking about relationship, he’s very good.

“It’s like a father and son relationship He tries to understand what the players want and he adds his experience to it and he delivers on the pitch which is a good thing.”
