Black Stars player Emmanuel Gyasi has stated that he feels comfortable in Ghana and his bond with Ghana has not vanished.
Gyasi was born in the Italian city of Palermo in 1994 but was raised by his grandparents in Ghana until the age of 11 when he returned to Italy.
The 27-year-old is thankful for a life that alternates between Africa and Europe.
“I went to Ghana as I was a small child and I lived there with my grandparents and my uncle,” he explained.
“It was a great experience for me, it allowed me to know my origins and the culture of my country. When I then moved back to Italy, I kept feeling Ghana was very close to me.
“Although I was born in Italy and I feel very comfortable here, my land of origin is Ghana. My bond to Ghana has never vanished or diminished throughout the years,”
“Those are my origins. That is my motherland. It’s something indelible in my heart,” he ended.
