Ghana FA defends response to Gyan return
Asamoah Gyan rescinded his retirement last Wednesday
Gyan-who suffered a torrent of abuse after the 2012 Nations Cup-announced his availability for international football last week after stepping down in February.
Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi issued a statement to congratulate the 26-year-old and pleaded with fans to be measured in their criticisms.
The federation, particularly Nyantakyi, was heavily criticized by former chairman Nyaho Tamakloe for raving about the return of the Al Ain ace.
But Nyantakyi has dispelled suggestions that their action will encourage indiscipline in the national team.
"We should appreciate that they (players) are made up of different psychological make-up," Nyantakyi told Joy Sports.
"Two different people from the same mother are not even the same.
"And so you don't expect two human beings to respond the same circumstances the same way.
"Some can withstand hardship, pressure and criticism and so on but others are not able to do that.
"So it is the responsibility of all of us; media and the public to try to encourage these people to overcome these challenges."
