Paramount chief of the Ashanti kingdom, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II praised former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan during the legend’s visit of Manhyia.
The former Sunderland player paid a courtesy call on the Asante Kotoko patron ahead of the launch of his maiden memoir on Saturday, April 30, 2022.
The visit coincided with the thanksgiving of Otumfuo Osei Tutu’s 23rd anniversary as chief of the Ashanti Kingdom.
Having spotted Asamoah Gyan during the event, Otumfuo through Daasebre Osei Bonsu hailed Asamoah Gyan and urged him to contribute to the development of football in Ghana.
“One of Otumfuo’s loyal children is here, and he has asked me to introduce him. He is known as Asamoah Gyan,“ said Daasebre Osei Bonsu.
“He has been visiting Otumfuo and the King is grateful for that. He was the best striker during the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted in Africa as he scored many goals for Ghana.
”Otumfuo says; ‘Continue to do your best for Ghana football to improve and also as a way to honour your late mother’.”
