- Asamoah Gyan says it is foolishness for people to complain about the money paid to footballers
- He took a video of himself in snow complaining that players go through a lot to achieve results
- Gyan was in the news for being dropped by Coach Kwesi Appiah but included in the team again because the president intervened
YEN.com.gh has seen a video of general captain of the Black Stars insulting those who complain about money paid footballers.
In the video, Gyan was seen wearing a coat and walking in the snow, complaining of the struggles footballers go through.
According to him, they endure so much in getting results and so whatever huge money paid to them is deserving.
A seemingly angry Asamoah Gyan concluded his statement with “sia sem”, an Akan word which literally means “foolish talks”.
“Snow snow snow it’s snowing here. So keep your mouth shut when they are paying us because we deserve it. You sit there and say whatever you like when they are paying us. sia sem,” Asamoah Gyan said in the video.
Some Ghanaians have reacted to his comments with many of them insulting him too.
April used the same “siasem” on Asamoah Gyan:
aprils_finestboy: “Lol siasem no bi.”
Reginald said he would not blame Asamoah Gyan for insulting Ghanaians:
reginaldbaako: “It isn't his fault. It all Nan Addo's fault to beg him to play and later insult us. What at all has Gyan got for Ghanaians this afcon?”
Fante girl said Asamoah Gyan is uncouth for his comments:
fantegirl: “Do you know what others go through yet they're paid peanut. Please go and do the needful and leave us to mind the business that pays us. What's with all the insults, after all the money you're still uncouth, smh.”
Richard was said that Gyan could talk that way:
wyclefrichard: “Awww Gyan paaa why?.”
Laurissa wondered why Asamoah Gyan cannot sacrifice for his country:
laurissa_boateng: "Ur ancestors when through pain, to sacrifice for their country !someone like Mandela spent 27 “polE polE” years in prison that is called sacrifice !! U r sacrificing for your country n u r there complaining about snow!♀️."
There are other comments which show how disappointed fans are watching Asamoah Gyan speak that way.
Some time ago, Ghanaians raised concerns about money paid to the Black Stars with some people complaining that it was too much.
Also, the players were in the news for boycotting an international match because their bonuses were delayed.
This made the then NDC government under former president Mahama airlift $3 million dollars to Brazil before they played.
Ghanaians complained bitterly about that incident, and perhaps, Asamoah Gyan felt he had to clap back at them.
Meanwhile, Gyan has also been in the news for his initial decision to resign from the senior national team.
But President Akufo-Addo intervened and he rescinded his decision.
Gyan had thus been given a new role as General Captain of the Black Stars.
