For the Ghana Premier League Season, Legon Cities have signed Ghanaian veteran striker Asamoah Gyan to stregthen the team. The Royals completed this operation just before the summer transfer window ended.
At the season start, the former Sunderland striker was however unavailable for the club’s first two league games. This was due to fitness concerns.
The Black Stars record goalscorer did not stay away from his teammates during the period. In some footage recently revealed, Gyan was coaching his new teammates in the dressing room during the team’s first two games. During his team’s battle on matchday three, Gyan was once again seen coaching his teammates during his warm-up.
After the game, he was asked about his recent actions. And he explained that he is just trying to contribute to the success of the team.
“I am a very passionate person. I am very funny, jovial and I can make everybody laugh. But when it comes to working, I don’t joke. If somebody is going to stab my brother and I am there I won’t allow it.” Gyan said.
“The coach is not perfect. I am just behind him shouting at players. That doesn’t mean I am the coach. I am also trying to contribute.” Added the 35-year-old striker.
Gyan lasted just 20 minutes against Medeama on matchday three.
He will be playing under new coach Bashir Hayford after Goran Barjaktarevic was sacked. It was following the team’s devastating 3-0 defeat against Great Olympics.
