Why does Asamoah Gyan wear 3?
Fans often wonder why former Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan wore the number 3 jersey for the majority of his career.
He did so because of his religious beliefs.
Gyan has explained why he picked the number 3 jersey in almost 95 percent of the clubs he played for and the national team.
Relation to Trinity
The Christian Trinity talks about One God existing in three coequal persons; the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
“It was given to me by my senior brother, Baffour Gyan. He was with the number 3 jersey when I was coming to the national team,” Gyan told Pulse Ghana.
“This question I asked him when I was a kid and he told me God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, which is three.
“And three number is very powerful, the number 3, for example, you want to lift something very heavy. You count three in your mind. One, two, three, so the three is very powerful, so you warn somebody for the first time, you warn the person for the second time, so the third one is very powerful.
“So, for me, number three is a powerful number that is why.”
