Ghana's No. 1

I didn’t swerve Kotoko for Legon Cities because of money – Asamoah Gyan

Published on: 12 November 2020

Black Stars General Captain Asamoah Gyan has opened up on his decision to sign for Legon Cities ahead of Asante Kotoko. 

The legendary striker was linked with a move to the Porcupine Warriors after expressing his desire to play for them on several occasions.

However, on Ghana Premier League transfer deadline day he signed a mouthwatering contract with Legon Cities.

There were reports that Kotoko could not meet his financial demands with the Legon reportedly agreeing to pay Gyan $1 million for a four-year contract.

And according to Gyan, Kotoko's offer was not concrete to attract his signature.

"As everybody knows, I am a big fan of Kotoko. Since i was a kid I support Kotoko with my whole heart but this is work. As a professional footballer if something doesn't suit me I can take my decision. It was something brief but it wasn't anything concrete. I don't want to even go into details," Gyan told reporters.

"Right now I'm a player of Legon Cities, I'm here to enjoy my football. Kotoko is a club I always support and you might not know what will happen in the future.

He added: "It is not about money. As a footballer when you are going to a team there is a lot that should favour you like environment. When it comes to money I'm blessed. I think Legon Cities have got a better project. They have got a lot of things to do in the future and I had to evaluate all."

Gyan signing for Legon Cities mark his return to the local league after 17 years. He is hoping to make a big impact.
