Asamoah Gyan, who is in the twilight of his career, has acknowledged that he will love to play for Asante Kotoko, his ‘childhood club’ before hanging his boots.
Gyan made a dramatic return to the Ghana Premier League last season with Legon Cities. However, occurrences following his signing denied fans of a fairytale return to the league where it all began for the legend.
The 35-year-old made just seven appearances for the Royals in all competitions last season, failing to complete 90 minutes in any game.
The former Sunderland player ended up being limited to 130 minutes in total for for Legon Cities due to injury. The Accra-based club failed to extend Gyan’s contract at the end of the season.
Gyan, currently a free agent, once again took the chance to speak about his aspiration to play for Kotoko on Otwinoko TV.
“Anything is possible. Asante Kotoko is my childhood club and I support them. I want to wear the jersey of Kotoko, even if it’s for one day I will be okay. I would be glad but I’ve to look at the body and my health first.”
“If it is Kotoko or any other club, it will be fine but the most important thing is for me to be fit and ready again to play,” the striker added.
Gyan was quick to point out his fitness deficiency stating that he will only be ready to play again in 2022.
‘Right now I am not active because of injuries. All these years, injuries have broken me down a bit. So I gave myself time off to check my body.’
By God’s grace I’ll be back to action in January 2022. I just want to enjoy football because I can’t play football forever. Now I have some strength so I want to return to playing,” he concluded.
The Ghana football season kicks off on October 29 and Gyan being a free agent is free to join any club even though the transfer window has been shut.
