Alhaji Grusah has apologized to Asamoah Gyan following his disrespect to the legendary striker by opining on the penalty decision made in the Ghana match with South Africa.
The Controversial football administrator slammed the aforementioned striker who have scored 51 goals for the Black Stars just because he claimed the penalty handed to Ghana during the 2022 World Cup qualifiers at the Cape Coast sports stadium was soft.
“I think the incident was a bit casual,” Gyan told Asempa FM on Tuesday. “There weren’t many cameras on the day to give us different angles unlike what we see in other league matches elsewhere.
“From where I sat and how I saw it, the infringement was debatable. I think Daniel Amartey went down too easily.
“This is my thought based on where I sat and how I saw things. However, the referee was closer to the spot and probably had a better view of the situation.
“Remember also that the tempo of the game was also high and that could have influenced the referee’s decision to award the spot-kick to Ghana.”
Gyan’s commentaries on the controversial penalty that is currently being investigated by FIFA as part of the complaint that was filed by South Africa alleging match manipulation has earned strong criticisms.
However, the president and owner of Ghana Premier League club King Faisal jibed Gyan by saying, “The penalty was a penalty. Because he [Asamoah Gyan] wanted to be in control of Ghanaian football, and he was not given the chance.
“Look at how his buttocks have become bloated. Why should he be brought back to the Black Stars? For him to do what? FIFA is more sensible than Asamoah Gyan.
“If not for the Black Stars, who is Asamoah Gyan? Even ball boy doesn’t qualify to be in this current Black Stars.”
However, upon second thought Grusah has realised he went overboard and has asked for forgiveness from the striker.
“I am apologising to Asamoah Gyan for describing his buttocks that way,” Grusah told Pure FM.
