A persistent innuendo by Frank Giage, a carpenter, infuriated the Al Ain Forward, who descended on him, giving him dirty slaps. The incident occurred when Gyan, in the company of some Black Stars players and celebrities, made a stopover at Linda Dor Restaurant, near Kibi in the Eastern Region.
The carpenter followed Ghana in his comfy Escalade cream 4X4 casting insinuations and referring to him as “over the bar’. The player and those who were with him cautioned the victim to stop following Gyan but he persisted, compelling Gyan to alight and give him a dirty slap. Many condemned Gyan for his action considering the fact that he is a star and recently crowned peace ambassador. Consequently, John Mensah pleaded on ‘Baby Jet’s behalf for the unfortunate incident saying, “I was not around when the incident occurred, but I must say I am sorry for the incident.
The victim should have also considered that errors are part of the game – and the fact that the incident is past and gone and should not be revisited. “In as much as we need the fans because they play very important role in our careers, they should be tolerant and be patient with us,” Mensah said on Happy FM.
The victim did not sound remorseful for his action and even promised that he will repeat it whenever he comes across the player. The Stars and their celebrities’ counterparts travelled in a convoy last Saturday to Kumasi for the 6th Stars Soccer Fiesta Reloaded. The unfortunate incident happened on their return to the capital city on Monday evening.
