Legon Cities striker Asamoah Gyan is expected to return to action before the end of the first round of the Ghana Premier League, according to Bashir Hayford.
The former Sunderland forward has been out of action for some weeks after suffering a groin injury at training.
Gyan who joined the club in a big-money move on transfer deadline day is yet to impress as he continues to battle with his fitness level.
The Royals beat the Ashantigold 5-2 to record their second win of the season in matchday 10 of the Ghana Premier League.
Speaking after the game, the former Asante Kotoko trainer hinted the veteran striker could be back before the end of the first round.
”Asamoah Gyan complained about groin just two days to our game and the physio gave him two weeks to come back, there is no coach who will have Asamoah Gyan in his team and bench him”
“If Gyan is even just 20% fit I will use him, I can only say that hopefully, we might see him before the end of the first round” He added.
