Business Travel Demand Won’t Bounce Back In 2021, And Maybe Not For Years. That Will Be Devastating For Airlines.

Even if a vaccine for Covid-19 becomes widely available – and widely used – around the globe, and if the very onerous government restrictions on international travel largely disappear, airlines still will continue to struggle with extraordinarily weak demand for business travel through the end of 2021, and likely beyond.

Asamoah Gyan’s business manager Anim Addo responds to reported $500,000 Asante Kotoko demand

Media reports claim the striker’s asking price has become a barrier between a possible move 

Asamoah Gyan’s business manager Samuel Anim Addo has revealed speculation that the Ghana striker is demanding an amount of $500,000 [€426,530] from Asante Kotoko before joining the local giants are untrue.

The former Sunderland and Udinese striker, who has been without a club since January, has been heavily linked to the Porcupine Warriors ahead of the commencement of the 2020-21 football season in November.

Rumours of an imminent move have been heavily fueled by the 34-year-old’s long-held dream of wearing the Kotoko jersey before calling time on his playing career.

He played for Liberty Professionals before leaving the domestic league for Italian side Udinese in 2003, but the Kumasi-based outfit is the most successful club in the history of the Premier League, having won 23 titles.

“I don’t know where the news is
