SuperSport United’s versatile defender, Edwin Gyimah, says that he’s learning from his Ghana teammates while in camp with the team.
The 22-year-old recently earned a call-up to the Black Stars, following an injury to John Boye, and he will be hoping to feature in today’s World Cup qualifier against Egypt, though he can only do that from the bench having been left out of the starting XI.
However, the experience of spending time with such a talented squad of players will be reward enough for Gyimah, a player who has been in fine form for Cavin Johnson’s side over the last 18 months.
Speaking from Ghana to his club’s official website, he said, “Sulley (Muntari), the Ayew brothers, (Michael) Essien, for me are some of the best players in the world. They have football brains and have made known their quality on the biggest stage."
“I am surrounded by great players in the national team, training with them and watching what they do and in games playing with them and learning from the best players. For me I can only see one way to go, and that’s for me to improve and become a better player.”
Gyimah will return to SuperSport in time for their upcoming Telkom Knockout game against Moroka Swallows and he will be hoping that his nation’s place in the 2014 World Cup has been secured by then.
