Former Ghanaian professional footballer Kweku Charles Bismark Taylor Asampong popularly known a as “Charles Taylor has called out former Blackstars captain, Asamoah Gyan for siding with Bafana Bafana over his country.
Charles Taylor speaking on Angel Tv wondered why Baby Jet, called the penalty awarded to Ghana as “soft”, when he has benefited from such penalties, taken them, scored and jubilated wildly.
Charles Taylor is of the view it would have been better for Asamoah Gyan to have kept his opinion to himself, than take sides in such a delicate issue.
The celebrated former Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko footballer, feels Asamoah Gyan has stabbed the Blackstars and its managers in back and must never be allowed to come anywhere close to the team.
He said ;
“If I were in Asamoah Gyan’s shoes, I’d not comment on this South Africa penalty saga. His comment was unfair to Ghana as a legend.
“He shouldn’t have made that comment knowing he is a former captain and a huge figure. Sometimes you don’t have to have opinion on everything especially when you know your status”
“Someone will also argue that he Gyan was awared some soft penalties when he played. But he didn’t say they were soft so he will reject.
“He scored and celebrated. Why didn’t he say he was honest and reject them then”
