Asante Kotoko deputy captain, Emmanuel Gyamfi has been rewarded a land by Goasomanhene Nana Kwasi Bosompra I for uplifting the image of the Ahafo Region with his impressive performances in the Ghanaian top-flight for the Reds.
Gyamfi, who hails from Mim near Goaso, visited the chief, Nana Kwasi Bosompra I, on Monday, September 6, 2021, to present a customised Asante Kotoko Jersey to him.
Expressing his appreciation after the presentation, the Omanhene of the Ahafo regional capital gave the plot of land to Gyamfi – who once played for Goaso-based Unity FC before joining Wa All Stars (presently Legon Cities FC).
He wished Gyamfi the best of luck ahead of the upcoming 2021/22 football season which is slated to kick off October 29.
“Gyamfi hails from Ahafo and he has taken us far. I will urge him to do more than he did last season for Asante Kotoko. It’s our prayer that he gets an injury-free season to be able to perform more than last season. I know he’ll not disgrace, ” the Omanhene said.
“He has to build here. So, I have given him a plot of land to build his dreamland on it. I will urge him to start building now with the little he gets.
” We’re doing this to encourage all people from this area to perform well in every profession they find themselves in.”
Gyamfi is one of the longest-serving players in the Porcupine Warriors team having joined in 2016 from Wa All Stars after a short stint with an Armenian side.
Gyamfi, 26, has won 5 major titles with the Kumasi-based club since he arrived in 2016 including the 2017 MTN FA Cup with 18 goals to his credit.
