Asamoah Gyan & Legon Cities on the brink of relegation following Sharks’ protest


The Royals could head to the lower tier should they lose the protest filed against them by Elmina Sharks

Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan could be heading to relegation with Legon Cities few months after joining them as they battle relegation in Ghana Premier League.

The Royals need a win at all cost against Eleven Wonders on final day to survive the relegation scare as they are fourteenth on the log with 39 points.

However, their troubles could move from bad to worse following a last minute protest made against one of their players by Elmina Sharks -16th on the log- who are also looking for all available options to stay up this season.

Although, Sharks defeated Legon 2-0 in matchday 33 last weekend, they have still filed a protest against Legon’s defender Issaka Mohammed whom they insist was ineligible to play part of the game. They want the disciplinary committee to deduct three points from their accumulated points.

According to a report by Asempa FM, the top hierarchy of Sharks have argued that Issaka left their club to join Legon ahead of the second round of the season and was already having three accumulated yellow cards with the last one coming in their 1-0 defeat to WAFA on matchday 25 in Sogakope.

However, since Issaka joined Legon, he has been ever present in all their games and played full throttle which they claim is contrary to what the rules of the game suggest.

Should the disciplinary committee finds Legon guilty of the offence, they will be docked three points which will leave them with 36 points and a win of any margin against Wonders on the last day of the season will do little to save Asamoah Gyan and Legon.

Gyan, despite his immense impact off the field for the club, has failed to live up to the expectations on the field. The Ghana’s all-time top scorer is yet to score a goal for the club after several appearances this season.
