And he added: "I don't really believe Gyan will have a future here.
“Anyone who has seen Asamoah play will know that he hasn't been himself in recent months”

"It baffles me how he can leave the best league in the world to play in the United Arab Emirates. I'll let people make their own conclusions why."
On Friday Bruce had claimed "parasites" turned Gyan's head after his goal in the 1-1 draw with England at Wembley in March.
And, in a
statement released on Saturday morning
Bruce said: "Anyone who has seen Asamoah play will know that he hasn't been himself in recent months. This option suits all parties at the present time and the club is well-protected in the deal."
Throughout the transfer window, Gyan was linked with a move to a big European club and Bruce blamed agents for turning Gyan's head.
"Since that game at Wembley, all the parasites, as I call them, hover around," said Bruce.
