Former Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan has hit back at football fans who jeered at him during a game for club side, Legon Cities FC against Kotoko in the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League.
The veteran striker was making an appearance for the Royals in match day 22 when he replaced experienced forward, Hans Kwoffie on the 75th minute.
His inclusion was not enough to salvage a point for Legon Cities who had already succumbed to an Augustine Okrah tipped-in goal from Fabio Gama’s free kick in the 13th minute for Kotoko.
The former Sunderland striker was booed by some fans but Gyan describes their actions as hypocritical.
“There is only one Asamoah Gyan.
“They [fans] can boo, they know they are hypocrites but they know there is only one Asamoah Gyan.
“There is only one Asamoah Gyan, they can say I am arrogant, I will be arrogant because they know the hard truth.
“I’m just here to help my team.They should even be thankful I’m in the league.
“So it is what it is.” Asamoah Gyan said.
Gyan, who is Ghana’s all time top scorer with 51 goals is yet to replicate his old form at Cities ever since his acquisition in a reported $1 million deal.
The 35-year-old has travelled wide after cutting his teeth with Dansoman based Liberty Professionals.
Notable among clubs he has featured for are, Rennes of France, Sunderland in England, Udinese and Modena in Italy and Kayserispor in Turkey.
He has spent some time in Asia with Al-Ain of Dubai, Shanghai SIPG of China and NorthEast United of India.
