Old Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has rigged out a strong message to a few Kotoko fans who ridiculed him throughout a Ghana Premier League sport against Legon Cities during the weekend.
Asamoah Gyan who has usually described himself as a Kotoko fans stated he was saddened that supporters of the team he has followed since his youth could call him names only due to the fact he decided to fold his trade with Legon Cities in the Ghana Premier League.
Taking to his social media pages to respond to the issue, Gyan stated “This one goes to the Kotoko fans in Accra about what happened yesterday (Saturday). What you guys did was unnecessary, unnecessary. Now I know we are all hypocrites. I will advise them that same way when they travel they should mention the names of their players outside because they are proud of their players, right? You can not go outside and use a player’s name to boost saying I know Baby Jet and he is a Ghanaian and I am also a Ghanaian and yet when you see me at the stadium you start booing”.
Gyan who’s yet to score in the Ghana League was a second-half replacement for Legon Cities and came on after Emmanuel Gyamfi had scored to offer visiting Kotoko a 1-0 win at the Accra Sports Stadium. He came on in the 75th minute, whilst Legon were severely throwing everyone forward searching for an equaliser, and at once drove a free-kick just over the bar with his first touch of the ball.
Before he came on, the fans began mocking and calling him names and in the post-match press conference who reporters requested him what he thought about the incident, he stated.
“There is only one Asamoah Gyan and they [fans] know it. They should even be grateful that I am playing in the Ghana Premier League,” Gyan, who has also been heavily criticised for putting on weight, said in response to the booing incident during the post-match press convention.
