The forward talks about his goals for the upcoming football season after a difficult 2020-21
Ghana veteran Asamoah Gyan has yet to bow out of the match, despite a frustrating 20/21 season.
At home in the Ghana Premier League after 17 years abroad, the 35-year-old had a difficult time with Legon Cities, struggling with injuries for most of the campaign as the club battled relegation.
He only made six appearances for the club in Accra and could not find the back of the net, which increased calls for a exit from the beautiful game.
“I did not retire from football,” Gyan said. Kessben FM .
‘There were some injuries last season, but I’m not done with football yet.
“People will criticize me, but I’m just hoping to get back to my normal shape and weight, but if I can not regain my shape, I will turn it off. But at the moment I’m working on myself to lose my body weight .
“I returned to Legon Cities and you could clearly see that things were not going as planned because I had gained weight, but I’m giving myself another season and I trust I’ll be back to my shape. And if I’m up my form is, I do not think I will be overlooked. But for retirement, not now. “
It is unclear where Gyan will play club football in the 2021-22 quarter after meeting his season-long deal with Legon, with whom he joined in the final hour after being heavily linked with 23-year-old Ghana Premier Champions Asante Kotoko.
The striker, Ghana’s greatest player and the highest scorer of all time, returns home after a period with the Indian Super League, NorthEast United.
When he left Ghana for the first time in 2003, he joined the Italian Serie A group Udinese, where he borrowed two seasons from Modena in the lower division.
He switched to the French outfit Stade Rennes in 2008 and left the Ligue Club for the then English Premier League team, Sunderland, after a good performance during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
His career has also led him to play for Al Ain and Ahli Dubai in the UAE, Shanghai SIPG in China and Kayserispor in Turkey.
