Asamoah Gyan not interested in owning Liberty

Published on: 07 November 2016

A director of Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals, George Afriyie has disclosed that the Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has cooled his interest in taking-over the cash-strapped team.

Gyan was reported to be in advanced talks with the board of his boyhood team over claiming a majority stake in the team.

However, Afriyie insists that the on-loan Al Ahli striker is not interested in buying the team despite helping to pay outstanding salaries of the playing body last season.

“It’s important that when we are with players you also have to advise them because he won’t be playing forever.

“At a certain point he would want to go into administration or coaching or what he thinks the future can do for him. But some of us felt that why can’t we convince him to be a shareholder in the club so it was a suggestion,” Afriyie said in an interview on Starr FM.

He added: “But the truth is that I don’t know how some portion of the media picked it and so for now he has informed me that he is no more interested so I can’t say whether in future, he would want to come on board, but the last time I spoke to him, he is no more interested.”
