Spread the love

Former Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has leapt to the defence of current skipper, Andre Ayew after he was sent off against Comoros.

 

A 3-2 loss to unfancied Comoros confirmed the Black Stars exit from the competition, the first time Ghana had left an AFCON without a win.

Despite making contact with the ball first, Ayew’s momentum carried him into the goalkeeper’s arm.

 

 

 

 

After watching a few frames of the footage, the official decided to send off the Ghanaian captain.

 

On social media, most Ghanaians felt the decision was extremely harsh, insisting that the ball was there to be won after the keeper spilled it.

It was a sentiment shared by Asamoah Gyan when he offered his thoughts on the incident at halftime on SuperSport.

Gyan described the referee’s call as harsh, stating that his former national teammate only had eyes for the ball when he slid in.

“It was a harsh decision by the referee,” Gyan lamented.

“He was sliding in, he was trying to score. He got the ball first but unfortunately, he collided with the goalkeeper’s hand.”

The Black Stars need to win to stand a chance of qualifying for the next round of the competition but are down 3-2 .
