Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has reacted angrily to comments made by Prince Tagoe about the Black Stars captaincy insisting that the former striker wants to ride on his name for fame.
Tagoe who played alongside Gyan in the Black Stars on numerous occasions, believes coach Kwesi Appiah made a huge mistake to pick Gyan ahead of Sulley Muntari and Michael Essien in 2012 since the duo were the seniors in the team at that time.
“What I can say is that everybody have his or her opinion. Even when a president is elected, someone will still argue that he doesn’t deserve to be the President,” Gyan told Hot FM.
“Others will also oppose to that comment and say he deserved it. Prince Tagoe is also saying his mind but I was expecting him to say it when he was in camp with us. We played together so he had the best of opportunities to express his grievances.”
“When people want to become famous ,they often try to use my name. The captain was given to me six years ago so why now? These people are only tarnishing my image because they know they can get the fame they are craving for after this.
“I worked really hard to earn the fame that I’m enjoying. Prince Tagoe and Nana Aba Anamoah are only using my name for fame,” he added.
Gyan is Ghana’s all-time topscorer with 51 goals and has admitted he will hang his boots after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations holding in Cameroon.
