Asamoah Gyan banned 2 matches

By on

asamoahgyan_qqcy92ln4sek12njqyki8sm23-443x330Black Stars forward Asamoah Gyan has received a two-match ban for a foul committed in last season’s Asian Champions League.

The player was red carded by referee Ravshan Irmatov for the two-footed scissor tackle on Salem Aldawsari but after a review of the offence, the Ghanaian was given further punishment.

The incident occurred during the last 20 minutes of the  knockout stages of the Asian Champions League  when Al-Ain faced Al-Hilal of Saudi Arabia.

Gyan said afterwards that the foul was in retaliation to a distasteful comment made by Hilal’s Romanian player Mihai Pintilii during the match.

Gyan will miss his team’s next match against Al-Wahda on Wednesday 10th December, 2014.
