The former Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan, has apologised to Ghanaians for verbally abusing the CEO of Websoft Solutions, Godwin Martey.
He admitted to using bad and harsh language at Martey that he was not supposed to have used.
In a new video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Asamoah Gyan made his apology asking Ghanaians and his fans to forgive him.
He added, however, that the audio of the assault circulating on social media has been doctored as that was not what happened there.
“The audio is out of context. I didn’t hit the guy. You hear voices, there was anger. I apologise for the words I used. They are not words I was supposed to use,” Gyan said.
He and his big brother Baffour Gyan were accused of beating Martey during a tennis ball match.
The game was between Asamoah and Martey with Baffour taking part as the umpire.
As they played, Martey said he realised that Baffour was “stealing” and awarding undeserving marks to his brother, therefore, he decided to stop the game.
However, Baffour would not accept his excuse and forced him to go and resume playing.
When he stood on his grounds not to return, Baffour, according to Martey, slapped him many times.
When he reported the case to Asamoah Gyan, Gyan was said to have told him that “you deserve it”, perhaps followed by the words he later used.
Martey said he threatened the brother with a lawsuit, but, he was dared by Baffour, who said to him: “go to any court, go to any police station, they can’t do anything”
He has decided to pursue this issue with his last drop to ensure that criminal charges are brought against Asamoah Gyan and his brother.
