'We Also Signed Gyan For His Name'

The Ghanaian club that signed African superstar Asamoah Gyan last year has admitted to signing the forward for more than just his footballing abilities.

In October 2020, Legon Cities announced the arrival of the Black Stars icon, who has failed to hit the ground running due to health and fitness struggles.

With many frustrated that Gyan has not yet made a significant contribution back in his home country, the club's chief executive officer Maxwell Terry Aidam has now claimed that Legon Cities are better off financially just by having the player on their books.

"Putting numbers to it, then I will tell you that unless you come to my office then we will see because Asamoah Gyan was signed as a footballer and for his brand essence," he said, according to Graphic Sports.

"You can attest to the fact that Asamoah Gyan coming to add to the Legon Cities brand has given us a big mileage.

"If you are looking at the numbers then you must look at my balance sheet. From where we sit, we have not got it 100%, but we are almost breaking even from bringing him on board in these worrying times of COVID."

Gyan, 35, has played just three times for the Ghanaian club since his arrival, and has so far failed to find the back of the net for Legon.
