Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan speaks on why Legon Cities spell was a disaster

Published on: 22 August 2022

Former Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan has said that persistent injuries was the reason behind his struggle at Legon Cities.

The 36-year-old before the start of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League season signed a one-year deal with the Royals.

However, Gyan made five appearances for the club without finding the back of the net.

In an interview on the Dentaa Show, Gyan stated that niggling injuries stopped him from enjoying his second stint in the Ghana Premier League.

"When I was at Legon Cities, I was battling with injuries. Anytime I am in form and I tell my people this week I feel good and I am going to score then I get injured then I go back for another two months," he said.

"I went for check-ups and the doctor said my muscles are tired. So I needed a long break to make sure everything heals because it looked like my body was stressed, the body was tired," he added.

The former Liberty Professionals forward has been clubless for the past two years after leaving Legon Cities.

However, in a separate interview with the BBC, Gyan hinted that he is aiming to make a return to the Black Stars squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The legendary striker has played at three FIFA World Cups and has scored six goals, making him Africa's top scorer at the global showpiece.
