Erstwhile Public Relations Officer of the Greater Accra Regional Circles Council, Nii Darko has added his voice to the ongoing impasse between supporters of Asante Kotoko and striker Asamoah Gyan.
It would be recalled that when Asante Kotoko crossed swords with Legon Cities in the most recent round of fixtures in the ongoing Ghana Premier League, some section of supporters of the Porcupine Warriors reportedly booed Asamoah Gyan.
It appears the jeers did not sit well with the former Sunderland and Al Ain forward who aimed a slight dig at the supporters of the Kumasi-based outfit but since his slight dig, the followers of the club have come in hard at Gyan.
Latest to add his voice is outspoken Kotoko fan Nii Darko who has thrown light on the reasons why Asamoah Gyan was subjected to the boos.
“The supporters who booed Asamoah Gyan at Accra Sports Stadium were not only Kotoko supporters in Accra because Kotoko have supporters across the country,” Nii Darko told Kumasi-based radio station Ashh FM.
He continued: “Gyan was booed because Legon Cities had a freekick and they wanted Gyan to come from the bench to take it so one of the Legon Cities players fell just to delay the time for Gyan to finish dressing and come on to take the freekick,”
“The Greater Accra Regional Circles Council are still waiting for the representative of Gyan to come out with a press statement to condemn Gyan’s act.”
Nii Darko further called the bluff of the legendary Ghanaian striker claiming fans of the club would not have to mention Gyan’s name before they acquire visas at embassies as intimated by the player.
“There are so many legends in Asante Kotoko so there’s no need for anyone to go to the embassy to mention his name before getting Visa. Gyan should put that at the back of his mind
“I will go to the embassy and mention Stephen Oduro, Opoku Nti, even we will mention George Abege and Adingra before I will acquire my visa not Gyan’s name,” he ended.
Gyan, Ghana’s all-time leading scorer has previously confessed his profound love for the Porcupine Warriors expressing his desire to play for the outfit before he hangs his boots but considering his recent impasse with fans of the club he might reconsider his decision.
