Asamoah Gyan will play for Al Ain on Thursday despite mothers death

By Patrick Akoto

Ghana Captain Asamoah Gyan will play for Al Ain against Al Shabab on Thursday despite the death of his mother.

Mrs Cecilia Love Mensah Gyan met her untimely death when she drove her car into a pillar after she lost control of the steering wheel at the Ghana National Association of Teachers in the capital, Accra on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old will defy his grief to turn out for his club side before heading home to be with his family.

Al Ain first team supervisor, Mohammed Obeid Hammad visited him at home on Wednesday and said the Ghanaian international was ready to play through the sorrow.

‘“Al Ain consider Gyan as one of the family and his decision to play the match in such circumstances proves this fact,” Hammad said

“Cosmin [Olaroiu, head coach] gave the player permission to leave to go to Ghana but he insisted on playing the match.

‘So we decided to give him permission to travel to Ghana after the match to meet his family and receive condolences in Accra.”

Al Ain Football Company Board Chairman, Shaikh Abdullah Bin Mohammad Bin Khalid Al Nahyan, telephoned Gyan to offer the club’s condolences.

    Gyan you love money more than your mother?.Your mother is dead and you still have the enthusiasim and energy to play for your club.

    ….but has been given permission to and has agreed to skip the Ghana-Cape verde friendly.Brave Anthony Annan on my mind.

    He is not normal. Your real mother??? You will be cursed at the next AFCON 2013 so that you continue missing more crucial penalties and causing more Ghanaians deaths by heart-attacks. Come AFCON 2013, it’s like he is raising money for the funeral that is why he decided to play whilst his dear mum is in the mortuary.

    • KWAME PITO says:

      stupid moron. like someone said illiterate Africans love the dead than the living. Gyan is coming to Ghana on friday after he has done job on thursday. Is that not wise? Or you think he is the only human being in his family. It takes strength for someone to keep a clear head and make sensible decisions when a loved one dies.

    …but why are we like this? Can’t we just respect the man in these tough times. We’re like a bunch of dogs just waiting for any opportunity to bark. The man has lost his mother; whether you hate or love him the right thing to do is send your condolences. Why all the critisizing and judging?!?!

  6. Bebe says:

    @Kwame Nti n 9gman; you two shd learn how to talk, @9gman: let me remind you that you are not God n can never be, n you cnt curse Asamoah if God does not pave way
