I was expecting the fans to properly welcome me back to the GPL - Asamoah Gyan

Published on: 19 August 2021

Striker Asamoah Gyan has expressed his disappointment on how he was welcomed back to the Ghana Premier League by the supporters.

The Ghana legend prior to the start of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season joined Legon Cities on a one year deal.

Gyan was expected to revive the local top-flight but failed to glitter due to consistent injuries.

According to him, he was expecting the fans to hugely welcome him back to the local scene but was disappointed with how he was welcome back.

"I was expecting the fans to respond positively to my Ghana Premier League comeback, but unfortunately it wasn't so but life goes on," he told Asempa FM.

The 34-year-old prior to his move to Legon Cities was strongly linked to Asante Kotoko.

The former Sunderland, Al Ain and Shanghai SIPG striker ended the just ended Ghana football season without scoring a goal.

Gyan grabbed the headlines when was host to help conduct the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] draw on Tuesday in Cameroon.

He is the country's all-time leading goalscorer with 51 goals but has been out of the senior national team, the Black Stars after the last edition of Afcon in Egypt in 2019.
