The Kayserispor man wants to make amends for his disappointing time with the Anatolian Star last year

Kayserispor striker Asamoah Gyan is confident of turning his fortunes around in the second half of the Turkish Super Lig.

The 32-year-old has struggled for form but largely due to injuries since completing a move to the Anatolian Star last summer.

His predicaments have limited him to only five league appearances, involving one start and one goal, thus far this campaign.

"I got [other] offers from Turkey before Kayserispor," Gyan told Anadolu Agency.

"Over 20 managers called me. It was Kayserispor who convinced me. 

"The first half of the season was unlucky for me but I'm working very hard for the second half. 

"Our team did a very good job in the first half. 

"We have a very good technical director, a good understanding of tactics [and] a very important place.

"We have a great president. They have supported me since the day I arrived. 

"What is important to me is not how you started, but how it ends. 

"Some things are too early to talk about, let's see how I finish, not how I began."

Gyan's injury setbacks have taken a toll on his career over the past few years.

He made 15 topflight outings for United Arab Emirates side Al Ahli Dubai in 2016-17, before making the switch to Turkey.

And while with Chinese outfit Shanghai SIPG, the former Sunderland forward made 10 league appearances each in 2016 and 2015.
