Manager Steve Bruce has snubbed striker Asamoah Gyan in the best players he has managed in his career but ex-Black Stars captain John Mensah made the cut as a substitute.

Bruce signed the two Ghana internationals during his spell at Sunderland.

Gyan at a successful debut season at the Stadium of Light where he scored ten goals in 31 league appearances.

But the following term, he was transferred to UAE giants Al Ain in a bumper loan deal and Bruce accused the striker of chasing the money from the Gulf.
