GFA dismisses report of Asamoah Gyan fight with Andre Ayew over captaincy
ght before their crunch clash with Uganda in a dispute with Andre Ayew over captaincy.
“Promptly ignore false report that Asamoah Gyan has left Ghana camp at Africa Cup of Nations in a dispute with Andre Ayew,” the GFA statement on Twitter read.
“All players resting for match against Uganda after this evening’s prayers. The Black Stars are united and focused.”
The GFA was forced to issue the midnight statement on Twitter after a website published the sensational news claiming Gyan has left the tournament in Gabon after the bust-up with the West Ham ace.
The report claimed that there was a heated exchange between the two before during the team’s dinner on Monday night in Port Gentil.
However the GFA was quick with its response with a series of Tweets to assure Ghanaians that the news is untrue as the players are focused on defeating the Cranes in Tuesday’s Group D match.
