Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan will arrive in the country from his United Arab Emirate (UAE) base this Thursday for the final funeral rites of his late mother Cecilia Love Amoako.
CEO of the Asamoah Gyan Foundation Sammy Anim Addo told Daily Guide Sports in a telephone interview yesterday that all is set for the funeral which is expected to draw high profile sports personalities from far and near this weekend.
He hinted that the bereaved skipper may be joined by top officials of Al-Ain on Thursday for the expected grand funeral which would be preceded by a wake keeping at the deceased’s Gbawe residence in Accra.
“He is arriving on Thursday. He will be playing for his side in their Champions League on Wednesday and it is most likely he will be flying home with officials of his club on Thursday,” Sammy said.
Besides coming to bid his mother farewell, Gyan would be expected to lead the Black Stars against their Sudanese counterparts in the 2014 World Cup qualifier next weekend, March 24, at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The deceased, 61, was involved in a motor accident at the Accra Teacher’s Hall last November and was pronounced dead at the Ridge Hospital, Accra shortly on arrival.
