Legon Cities new signing Hans Kwofie has revealed Asamoah Gyan played a huge role when he was making his decision to join Legon Cities.

Kwofie joined the Royals in the early part of the second transfer window from AshGold.

The 32-year-old started the season the well with the Miners scoring five goals in nine games.

At the time of the transfer, AshGold were in the top four and Legon Cities were in the relegation zone.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with Joy Sports, Kwofie says he still opted for the switch because he was excited by the prospect of playing with Asamoah Gyan.

“My coming here [Legon Cities] was influenced by Asamoah Gyan. I wanted to play with him. I’ve admired him for a very long time and he is my role model. Whenever I see him play, I am very happy.”

Since Kwofie joined the Royals, Gyan is yet to make an appearance in the Ghana Premier League. However, the former AshGold striker is eager to play with Gyan.

“The idea of coming to play with him is an idea that was very good for me. It’s even a morale booster for me and I can’t wait to play with him.”

Legon Cities resume the second round with a game against Berekum Chelsea at the Golden City park.
