‘I’ve Not Been Happy With Asamoah Gyan Since He Reported Me To President Kufuor’- K.T Hammond

Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa, Kobina Tahir Hammond, has revealed he has not liked Asamoah Gyan since 2008.

According to the lawmaker, the ex-Ghana captain reported him to then President John Kufuor to punish him for making comments about his performance.

Although he was not there, but the report of his discussion with the president got to him and has since not liked the striker.

“In 2007/2008 AFCON, Asamoah Gyan reported me to President Kufour that I’ve made a statement to the effect that they were messing with our hearts so Mr Kufuor, should do whatever was in his power to punish me or something,” he recounted on the floor of Parliament.

“I wasn’t there, but you know even walls have ears. So those who were there came and told me, ‘Asamoah Gyan has reported you to the President,” he said. “Somehow, however, the President did not take any actions against him.

“I have never been happy with Asamoah Gyan until today, and come to think about it; look at what he did to us, the penalty.

“[Obviously] the President had got so many national matters on his mind. I’m sure this one escaped him. So I waited for his call, but the call never came. So I’ve never been happy with him up to today and come to us with the penalty.”

Ex-GFA Boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi Reacts To Dede Ayew’s ‘Senior’ Players Comment

Ex-GFA Boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi Reacts To Dede Ayew’s ‘Senior’ Players Comment

Former Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has stated that Black Stars captain Dede Ayew only expressed his opinion on senior players being selected for Ghana’s final World Cup squad.

According to Nyantakyi, who makes the squad is a decision made by the head coach, and Dede Ayew’s opinion has no bearing on that.

Nyantakyi explained to Kings TV that Ayew’s comment was not definitive because he used the word “may.”

“The coach has the final decision. What Dede Ayew said was just his opinion and it doesn’t mean that is what the coach will do. Because he(Dede) is not a coach. Even with what he said, he used ‘may’,” he said.

” He(Dede) said the senior players ‘may’ be able to earn the coach’s selection. But it doesn’t mean it is automatic because there have been instances where senior players were dropped for younger players, while younger players have also been dropped for senior players. So, it all depends on the strategy of the coach. We don’t select players based on age or experience only, but the player’s performance in totality, that is what the coach will consider,” he added.

Dede Ayew, in a previous interview with the Daily Graphic, stated that the current senior players in the squad may have an advantage when it comes to selection into the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Dede Ayew said that selection into the team is based solely on merit and that no one is guaranteed a place in the team.

“The newcomers are talented, but we already have a strong team that qualified for the World Cup, so every position is competitive. Apart from senior players who may have an advantage, I believe no one is guaranteed a place in the squad just yet”.

Ajax Want To Qualify From The Group Stage – Mohammed Kudus

Ajax midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, says the target for his side is to make it past the group stage of the UEFA Champions League this season.

Ajax started the 2022/23 season well, beating Rangers with a 3-0 scoreline in their opening game before losing to Liverpool in the second game.

The Eredivisie side current sits second in the group with three points, three behind Napoli who are top of the group after wins in their opening two games.

But Kudus, who has scored in both games so far in the competition believes despite a good start, Ajax need to do more and qualify from Group A.

“We are not done yet, it’s a long way to go,” he told Ajax’s media team.

“Most importantly is about getting the three points and getting out of the group stage, so that is the team’s goal and when that happens, the individual stuff will come naturally so the target is to get out of the group stage for now.”

With two goals in two games, the 22-year-old will look to continue that run when Ajax play host to Napoli in Tuesday’s fixture.

According to him, the Champions League is one of two competitions that every kid dreams to be involved in.

“Champions League and World Cup I think are the two biggest competitions we all dreamed about playing so it’s a dream come true but also having an impact and then trying to help the team,” he added.
