Former Ghana international Asamoah Gyan has revealed his interest in coaching his boyhood club, Asante Kotoko, in the future.

Gyan, who holds the record as the Black Stars’ all-time leading scorer with 51 goals and is the highest African scorer in World Cup history, missed the opportunity to play for the Ghanaian giants upon his return to the local scene.

Gyan retired from professional football in October 2023 after joining Legon Cities during the 2021/22 season, marking his return to domestic football since he left Liberty Professionals in 2003.

Despite many expecting him to join Asante Kotoko, he opted for Legon Cities instead.

In a recent interview with UTV, the former Sunderland star expressed his willingness to take up a coaching role at Kotoko in the future.

Asked if he’d be interested in coaching Asante Kotoko, Gyan told UTV: “Why not? I will gladly accept Kotoko’s coaching job if I’m into coaching.”

Gyan, who has already secured his UEFA B coaching license, is qualified to undertake such a role.

Since retiring, Gyan has been active in various projects, including the All Regional Games set for November 2024.

Additionally, he leads Dr. Bawumia’s manifesto committee ahead of the 2024 general elections.
