Asamoah Gyan, the ex-captain of Ghana, has revealed that he is subjected to personal insults from time to time.
Despite the fact that criticism is a part of the game, the experienced striker believes he is human and does not deserve to be insulted.
Despite being Ghana’s most-capped player and all-time top scorer with 51 goals, Gyan has been the subject of controversy on multiple occasions.
When he missed a penalty against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup quarter-finals, the 36-year-old was heavily chastised.
The Black Stars were unable to become the first African team to reach the World Cup’s last four as a result of that penalty miss.
“I’m human. Sometimes, it would get to you. Sometimes too, you’d be strong. In this world, nobody has to like you. That is why we keep on pushing,” Gyan told Joy FM.
“You can criticise me. Why not? This is the job I chose to do, and I’m for the people. When you criticise me with facts, then we go. Sometimes, people attack you personally. It’s like a personal thing. That is where I don’t get it.”
“At the end of the day, football, we’re for the people. Asamoah Gyan scores today; he’s the best player in the world. He misses tomorrow; he’s the worst player. It all comes with the territory.”
