Legendary Ghanaian football player, Michael Essien, has undone his action of publicly supporting the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana after he shared a post about it via his verified Instagram handle.

As YEN.com.gh earlier reported, he wrote, “We see you, we hear you, we support you. Our LGBTQIA plus Community in Ghana.”

It appears obvious that most Ghanaians are against the LGBTQ+ community in Ghana and thus, Essien's advocacy didn't go down well with many social media users as they roasted him.

Following the public uproar and possibly some personal advise the ace footballer received, he decided to take back his support by taking down the post.

A new check conducted by YEN.com.gh shows all the other posts among which his statement in support of the queer community was seen previously.

However, the one in question, together with its countless comments about Essien being a deviant is currently missing but it looks as though most people are yet to notice.

Meanwhile, renowned Black Stars player Kwadwo Asamoah has made a remarkable history in Serie A after becoming the African player with the highest appearances of all time in the league.

As myjoyonline.com reports, Kwadwo Asamoah was able to bag the achievement after he was substituted in the 77th minute in the recent match between his club Cagliari and Crotone.

This appearance brought the midfielder's total number of caps in Serie A to 271 which outdoes the record that was previously held by Sulley Muntari at 270.
