Asamoah Gyan loves it in South Africa, after making some of his best memories during his playing career in the country and seems to continue that legacy while working as a pundit on SuperSport.

The 36-year-old former Ghana captain took time off to visit South African club Mamelodi Sundowns, where he was given a tour of their multipurpose facilities.

In photos posted on Twitter, sighted by Sports Brief, the footballer turned pundit was impressed with what he saw from an African club.

"The Brazilians were visited by two special guests, Ghana International legend Asamoah Gyan and Sports Presenter Moeez Praiz of Nigeria at training today," wrote Sundowns on Twitter.

Asamoah Gyan who last played for Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities was in awe of the facilities he saw, taking to Twitter to express his delight.

Asamoah Gyan is yet to hang his boots following a glittering football career, but it won't be surprising to see him give his career the last dance at Sundowns.

The legendary forward remains Ghana's all-time leading scorer with 51 goals from 109 international appearances.

He is fondly remembered in South Africa for leading the Black Stars to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Asamoah Gyan, Ghana's all-time leading scorer, will be part of SuperSport TV's specialist analysts when the Africa Cup of Nations begins on Sunday, January 9, 2022.

The legendary Ghanaian forward may have missed the competition after he was not named in Milovan Rajevac's team for the tournament.

However, in an announcement made by DSTV on Friday, the former Ghana captain was named a pundit for AFCON 2021.
