“I was very mad and I vowed to help Nigerians instead of Ghanaians if I see them in need”- Former Ghana international

Published

Asamoah Gyan, a former Ghanaian international, has disclosed that after receiving “extremely harsh” treatment from fans, he once swore to support Nigerians rather than Ghanaians in times of need.

In 2008, Asamoah Gyan revealed significant discoveries on his playing career.

The former Sunderland and Stade Rennes forward, who will turn 37 in November, has criticized certain Ghanaians harshly for treating him disrespectfully in spite of his enormous personal successes with the West African superpower.

Gyan has disclosed that he played with excessive pains and groin problems throughout the 2008 AFCON tournament which was hosted by Ghana.

He recounts how he and his family were subjected to harsh treatment by fans with some even threatening his family, leading to his mother crying on the phone.

“During games in the tournament, I had to take injections to kill pains and forced myself to play. There was one game against Namibia, [the fans] were expecting Ghana to beat them like 10-0. It was one of those days… There was one chance from a very acute angle. The goalkeeper couldn’t grasp the ball and I shot the ball and it went wide. People jumped on me that I missed that chance. They threatened my family and insulted my mother,” he said in an audio interview aired on Asempa FM.

The former Udinese striker recalls the experience was far worse than what he was subjected to during the 2010 FIFA World Cup quarter-final incident in South Africa where he missed a crucial penalty.

“It was even worse than what happened at the World Cup in South Africa. I told myself that I am sacrificing myself for you people but, you don’t see it. My mom called me in the morning, crying. I also started crying and that was when I threatened to leave the camp. I took my things and left. But, former President Kufuor spoke to me,” he continued.

Gyan, known for his expressive character, says the situation drove him mad and he vowed not to help Ghanaians in need out of the country anymore.

“That time vowed that when I see a Ghanaian outside and I see a Nigerian I would help the Nigerian. I was very mad,” he stated.
