Gyan is like your best friend next door- NorthEast United player Panagiotis Triadis

Published on: 03 June 2020

Panagiotis Triadis, a former team mate of Asamoah Gyan at NorthEast United described the Ghanaian as a very friendly person.

The pair teamed up at the Indian outfit earlier this season but injury and a quick end to Gyan's contract shortened their partnership on the pitch.

According to the Greek midfielder, Gyan brought some excitement to the club.

"To be honest if you could compare Asamoah and Obetse, they are the complete opposite," he said when asked to share his experience with Asamoah Gyan as a roommate on Let's Football Live. "Obetse is very very serious, very very focused and takes this ship role and Asamoah is more like just your best friend from next door," he added.

"You can't feel like this is Asamoah Gyan, he is one of the top scorers in the whole world cup, like this man has played everywhere, this man has made millions in football.

"He is not that guy at all, he is literally a friend to everyone, to the young guys, young Indian boys that came to the first team, to the top players. He was very lovable, very very funny guy and when his opinion, should have been heard, he was there to speak."

He also revealed that he still speaks to the striker to this day.

"Speaking for myself as well I had a great relationship with him, we are still friends, we spoke yesterday and I think on the court we also had great chemistry. Too bad the season had to end so early."

In his eight appearances for the Indian top flight side, the former Sunderland man scored four goals.
