PHOTO: Asamoah Gyan to wear Number 35 at Shangai SIPG

Asamoah Gyan will wear the number 35 jersey at new club Shangai SIPG. Gyan had to settle for the shirt number as his favourite number 3 is unavailable.

Gyan has signed a new two-year deal with SIPG, with the option of renewing the contract when it expires in 2017. 

The new deal will see him earn some 350, 000 dollars a week in wages. 

If he succeeds in China, he will be remembered as one of few players who didn’t need a bigger league to succeed in mainstream football.
