Embattled Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has agreed to change his hairstyle to enable him to continue to play in the United Arab Emirates.
Asamoah Gyan is among a group of more than 40 players deemed to have “unethical hair” under United Arab Emirates Football Association guidelines.
The Saudi rule bans mohawk-style cuts. Some Islamic teachings ban ‘Qaza’ hairstyles, which include mohawks, because only part of the head is shaved, leaving other parts unshaven.
But speaking on the matter, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Asamoah Gyan Foundation, Samuel Anim Addo, says the Al Ahli striker will make amends to his trademark mohawk hairstyle before returning to the United Arab Emirates.
“Asamoah Gyan got that Mohawk hairstyle because of the AFCON and he will cut it before returning to the United Arab Emirates.
“If you have taken notice, any time he is the UAE his hair is down, so that is what he will do when he gets back,” he said on Happy FM in Accra.
