In issue no 966 of Soccer Laduma, Gyimah revealed four centre backs from around the world that he idolises. The first name on his list was Brazilian centre back, Thiago Silva, who is currently playing for PSG in the French Ligue 1.

“I really like him (Thiago Silva),” Gyimah told Soccer Laduma. “He is very calm and plays with a lot of intelligence…”

Gyimah went on to name Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, Chelsea’s Gary Cahill and Soweto rivals, Kaizer Chiefs’ Erick Mathoho as the other players that he idolises. On Mathoho, Gyimah identified his work rate and his humility as respectable qualities.

“I respect Mathoho,” Gyimah added. “His work rate is very high and he is also very humble..."

Gyimah has made 15 PSL appearances for Pirates this season, after joining the Buccaneers last August.
