Captain of the senior national soccer team of Ghana, Asamoah Gyan has come out to explain that he sees no reason why he should be hanged in the court of public opinion for wearing a customized armband.
Despite the Black Stars 5-0 win over Ethiopia on Sunday in an AFCON 2019 qualifier, Asamoah Gyan became the most trending news for leaving the pitch with a ‘special armband’ when he was replaced in the second half by Abdul Majeed Waris.
But speaking to www.myjoyonline.com on Monday, the Al Ahli striker [Asamoah Gyan] claimed he’s petrified that people are making comments about his armband and not the team’s performance on the day.
“That is what I heard which is quite strange that people are making comments about this armband thing after a huge win,” he said.
“Honestly I don’t know what people want again, Zanetti of Inter Milan had his picture on his arm band, Icardi of Inter Milan and Sergio Ramos as well so why is it that anything Asamoah Gyan does is becomes an issue,” the Baby Jet added.
“At the end of the day we have won and we should be happy with that,” he noted.
