GPL Matchday 3: Asamoah Gyan ready to make his Legon Cities debut against Medeama Friday

Legon Cities will take on Medemaa in the Ghana Premier League for the 21st time when they faceoff this evening at the Accra Sports Stadium and Asamoah Gyan is expected to feature for the Royals for the first time since joining them.

Asamoah Gyan

In the 20 previous clashes, Legon Cities have won 10, lost 5 and drawn 5 against Medeama SC.

Medeama who won two out of two of their first two games last season have had a poor start to the 2020/2021 season having lost one and drawn one of their two games played thus far, whereas Legon Cities have also lost one and drawn one, which is similar to last season’s outcome.

The big money spenders have been compelled to part ways with their head coach Goran Barjaktarevic after a poor start to the season. The club couldn’t contain their 3-0 walloping by their fellow Accra neighbours Gt. Olympics on matchday two last week.

The Serbian has been replaced by Coach Bashir Hayford. The former Ghana Premier League champions with Kotoko and Ashanti Gold will be on the technical bench when Legon Cities take on Medeama SC.

However, Asamoah Gyan whom Legon Cities slashed $250,000 on him as his annual salary is yet to kick a game due to lack of match fitness, but reports have emerged that Ghana’s all-time top scorer is likely to make his Legon Cities debut against Medeama today.

Asamoah Gyan is expected to revive the attacking line of the Royals, who are yet to score from an open play this season.

Gyan has proven himself where ever he has been, barren any injury worries.

Baby Jet as he is affectionately called made his Ghana Premier League debut 17 years ago with Liberty Professionals and bagged 10 goals, but he missed several matches because he had to go for trials abroad.

Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals and also Africa’s greatest scorer in the FIFA World Cup with six goals.
