Gyan joins Essien, Ronaldo and Maradona with dodgy statue tribute

Asamoah Gyan has become the latest Ghanaian star to have a statue unveiled, after former national teammate Michael Essien received the same honour last week.

The handiwork of a local artist, Essien's decidedly dodgy tribute was placed on display in Kumasi a few days ago and quickly attracted derision from across social media.

Now, the very same sculptor has returned with a similarly angular homage to the Black Star's all-time leading goalscorer.

It would appear that we truly are living in a golden age as far as awful football statues are concerned, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Diego Maradona both receiving equally objectionable commemorations.

Question is, which one is worst?
