Black Stars legend Asamoah Gyan has made revelation about his decision to snub Ghana Premier League giants Asante Kotoko for Legon Cities.
The former Sunderland star was heavily linked with a move to Asante Kotoko but the 2-time CAF Champions League winners failed to reach agreement in a considerable period of negotiations against the run to land Gyan.
And that gave Legon Cities the urge to complete a deadline day transfer for Gyan. The 34-year has now revealed why he end up at Cities instead of Kotoko.
Gyan has stated that his new club (Legon Cities) have a better project and provides a good environment for his football.
“As everybody knows, I am a big fan of Kotoko. Since I was a kid I support Kotoko with my whole heart but this is work. As a professional footballer if something doesn’t suit me I can take my decision,” he revealed.
“It was something brief but it wasn’t anything concrete. I don’t want to even go into details.”
“Right now I’m a player of Legon Cities, I’m here to enjoy my football. Kotoko is a club I always support and you might not know what will happen in the future.”
After the deal, Gyan has been criticized for his decision for snubbing Kotoko with many supporters claiming the forward joined the Cities for money. He cleared those explanations claiming his decision was not based on money.
“It is not about money. As a footballer when you are going to a team there is a lot that should favour you like environment. When it comes to money I’m blessed.
“I think Legon Cities have got a better project. They have got a lot of things to do in the future and I had to evaluate all.
Despite failing to sign Gyan, Kotoko have signed Emmanuel Keyekeh, Latif Anabila, Mubarik Yussif, Evan Adomako, Muniru Sulley, Fabio Gama, Patrick Asmah and Emmanuel Sarkodie.
After Gyan’s deal, the Cities have also steal another deal from Kotoko, announcing a deal for Matthew Anim Cudjoe who played a season-long deal at Kotoko last season.
Gyan and Cudjoe are expected to feature for Legon Cities when their season start this weekend with a clash against Berekum Chelsea.
