Gyan blasts Tamakloe for criticizing his Ghana return
Asamoah Gyan is furious with former Ghana FA boss Nyaho Tamakloe
Tamakloe, a former chairman of the Ghana FA, criticized the current administration for re-admitting the Al Ain attacker into the Black Stars after he went on a self-imposed leave.
Gyan, 26, took a temporary break from the national team after he suffered a torrent of abuse after missing a semi-final penalty against Zambia at the 2012 Nations Cup finals.
But he rescinded his decision after five months, claiming he has recovered from the psychological trauma.
Tamakloe claimed the move was in bad taste and a recipe for setting a bad precedent for players to decide when they want to play for the national team.
But the Al Ain striker says he is shocked at his outburst but remains focused on his career.
"The man is fond of doing that, I believe he is an elderly person but he remarks on most of us the Black Stars players have been very distasteful,Ē Gyan is quoted by the Captivating Ghana Sports newspaper.
"I donít even know him, who is he? To be honest I donít know him in person. Even if I meet him I canít recongnize him so I am surprised how he reacts to issues concerning my persona especially and other Black Stars
players in general.
"This is not the first time, during the nationís cup in 2008, he passed a similar demoralizing comment about me.
"It is quite unfortunate but I wonít want to pay attention to his comments, what is important for me now is to concentrate on my return to the Black Stars and do well to impress my fans."
