Asamoah Gyan Claims Presence of Juju in Football In An Interview

Ghanaian football legend Asamoah Gyan reveals that his childhood club, Cedar FC, used traditional practices, known as juju, in their matches at the juvenile level in Accra. The all-time leading goal scorer for Ghana and the African player with the most goals at the World Cup states that the team would partake in rituals, such as bathing in certain substances, as a means of seeking victory in their colts league games

According to Gyan, during his time playing for the colts football team, there were occasions when the team would participate in activities meant to help them win games. He also mentioned that some players may engage in practices involving juju, but that this is kept secret. He explained that sometimes players would be asked to perform specific actions and that failure to do so could be blamed for the team losing a game.

He also stated that while some players may be open about their use of juju, others may keep it hidden and that it's hard to know who is engaging in these practices. He also mentioned that some people may be deeply involved in juju but still present themselves as holy and pious.
