Chief Executive officer of King Faisal and veteran Ghanaian football administrator, Alhaji Grunsah has said that former Black Stars player and captain, Asamoah Gyan must apologize to the good people of Ghana over his soft penalty claims
Ghana beat South Africa by a lone penalty goal in the world cup qualifiers to qualify to the play-offs of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, and in commenting on the penalty, the former Black Stars Captain said the penalty was a soft penalty and that Ghana was very fortunate to be awarded the penalty
“I think the incident was a bit casual. From where I sit and how I saw it I think Daniel Amartey went down too easily but the referee was closer to the spot and probably had a better view of the situation,” the ex-Ghana captain said.
But Alhaji Grunsah is not in agreement with the comments of Asamoah Gyan, saying that his comments are unfortunate and he must apologize for such reckless comments.
“If it was a penalty or not a penalty and the matter is with FIFA, we don’t need our former captain to come and say it was a soft penalty. It doesn’t work like that”, he told Happy FM.
“SAFA doesn’t have any case against Ghana in this matter so we don’t need Gyan to be making such reckless comments. If he was part of the team would he have said so. We can pardon Andy Yiadom but not Asamoah Gyan for making such comments”.
