General Captain of the Black Stars Asamoah Gyan, has apologised for using some unflattering words on his tennis opponent, Godwin Martey, who accused him of assault.
Speaking in an interview, he stated that the words were said out of anger because of the disagreement that had been ensuing between them on the tennis court.
The words, Asamoah Gyan said, were uncalled for and asked his fans to forgive him for that.
His apology comes after Godwin Martey, the CEO of Websoft Solutions accused the Black Stars’ General Captain and his brother, Baffour Gyan of assaulting him during a tennis match.
The incident is said to have occurred at the 37 Army Officer’s Mess tennis court on the evening of Wednesday, October 14.
According to Mr Martey, the singles game which was set up by a mutual friend took a sour turn when he noticed that all controversial points that were supposed to go in his favour were given to Asamoah Gyan by his brother Baffour Gyan who acted as the umpire of the game.
After observing this for some time, Mr Martey said he was unhappy and asked for a proper tournament to be arranged with a match commissioner and a neutral umpire to ensure fairness to both parties.
After telling them this, he said Baffour Gyan shouted at him in “a very aggressive tone” saying: “My friend shut up and stand there and play”.
Feeling intimidated by the angry rants, he quit the game and sat down on the sidelines.
