Gyan has indicated that he has no regret buying that mansion.

I don’t regret buying my house, but maintaining my house after retirement is one of the challenges I have right now. I think about it every day. I tell myself that after retirement, I will need to maintain this house. That is why I have to save money and invest well so I can maintain my house. This is one of my challenges.”
