When he was a young football player, Asamoah Gyan recalled how Bernard Don Bortey gave him a large sum of money.
Don Bortey, according to the ex-captain of the Black Stars, is the type of person who doesn’t hesitate to share. He was also described as being free-spirited by Asamoah Gyan.
He has been of assistance to me and is a person of freedom. Dong Bortey was at his best during those times. Gyan said in an interview with Dan Kwaku Yeboah, “I remember we were in camp when he came with a rucksack full of money.”
He unzipped his luggage and told me to take what I needed since, although we were friends, we weren’t particularly close. I’m astounded beyond belief.
In his subsequent account, he said, “I pulled out a bundle of cash, and I assured him that the day I too make a lot of money, I will also compensate him for his nice actions.”
“He is someone who can offer you $100,000,000 if it is the last money he has left.” I’m feeling a little emotional… Despite the fact that few people genuinely know him, he acts with sincerity.
“Things happen in life. He was intended to be up there. People are unaware of my friendship with him, yet we occasionally communicate. He is a decent man.
