Gyan reveals why he accepted pay cut to stay at Kayserispor
Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has revealed that he decided to reward Kayserispor’s supporters with a huge pay cut to enable his stay at the club due to their support.
The former Liberty Professionals forward joined the Turkish giant’s from Shanghai SIPG last season, but could only boast of one goal after 12 appearances in the Turkish Super Lig.
Ahead of the new campaign, Gyan was rumoured to be on his way out of the club following concerns about his earnings as compared with his performance, he decided to settle for a pay cut to prove a point.
“I’ve explained the situation leading to my decision for a pay cut to the administration. I believe it was an unfair profit [for me] after the first season, so I offered a refund,” Gyan said.
“Ahead of the upcoming season, we’ve had a discount in my contract and I’m going to play for one portion out of three as compared to my previous contract. It is well deserving due to the factors.
“I cannot leave the club and the love of the fans without a reward since I believe I’ll return to my old days [next season],” he added.
Gyan has been joined at Kayserispor by countryman Bernard Mensah from La Liga side Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan deal, with the duo expected to lead the club’s attack.
