We all know the best clubs to be Kotoko and Hearts of Oak in some time now. With all due respect to these teams the better they win games and continue with their team to bring back glories is enough said. With time, looking at how the young teams are coming head to head with Hearts of oaf Oak is becoming unbecoming from now onwards. The Nigerien forward left Ghana earlier this year to join Danish outfit HB Koge having ended his stay with Inter Allies FC. Although he was signed with a lot of expectations, Victorien Adebayor struggled to settle in and hence secured a loan move to Legon Cities FC for the rest of the season. Earlier last week, the Ghanaian side unveiled the new signing to put an end to speculation of a likely hijack from Hearts of Oak. Subsequently, Victorien Adebayor has been taken through a serious of medical examinations and will in the coming days train with his Legon Cities FC. Antwi has also joined the club on a free transfer after ending his stay at Sudanese giants Al-Merrikh SC last year.
Multiple media reports suggest that the midfielder was close to signing for South Africa side Baroka FC earlier this year but the deal fell through in the later stage. He was top scorer of the Sudanese Premier League in 2018/2019 where he netted 19 goals for Al Khartoum Al Watani. Antwi joined Al-Merrikh halfway in the 2019/2020 season scoring 7 goals in 13 matches to helped them clinch the Sudan Premiership title. Legon Cities have been reaping some good results under veteran coach Bashir Hayford.
Gyan’s club career has seen him play for the likes of Udinese, Rennes, Sunderland and Kayserispor, while he was last on the books of Indian Super League side NorthEast United. The deal sees Gyan earn over “$1 million dollars in cash and packages” according to his agent, Sammy Anim Addo, as per Joy Online. “Here we go. I’m back home to continue my career with Legon Cities,” Gyan wrote on his Twitter page. “I’m happy to join this club because they have a future plan for Ghana football. Don’t blink when the second half of the season starts. Follow my new club for every details of the club. Thanks for your support.” Gyan’s acquisition is the latest statement of intent from Cities, who are embarking on their first full top flight campaign after being rebranded from their previous name – Wa All Stars – last year. Gyan will be in line to make his debut against Berekum Chelsea on the opening day of the new season in just under two weeks’ time.
Before, the centre-forward was heavily linked to Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko, whom he had publicly maintained a personal desire to represent, before calling time on his professional career.
If the upcoming clubs can spend like this then what the rest and most traditional clubs waiting for. In most times the conditions of the team doesn't meet the demands of the players which makes it difficult for the club justify their vitality. In some time past the players will help the team to rise from the bottom but as we can see they are still struggling with consistency. Gyan's acquisition is the latest statement of intent from Cities, who are on a re-branding course following their re-christening from Wa All Stars last year. He could make his debut for The Royals against Berekum Chelsea on the opening day of the 2020-21 GPL season in a fortnight. In December, Legon signed Ghana international and former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda ahead of the 2019-20 season which was prematurely terminated halfway due to the coronavirus disease disruptions.
