‘You’re ungrateful’ – Alhaji Grunsah blasts Asamoah Gyan for saying South Africa penalty was soft
Football administrator Alhaji Karim Grunsh has hit out at Asamoah Gyan over his remarks on Ghana’s penalty against South Africa last month.
A first-half penalty from Andre Ayew was enough to separate both teams after Daniel Amartey went down from a challenge from De Reuck.
The penalty decision has, however, been contested by South African FA, who have since lodged a complaint at FIFA alleging match-fixing and match manipulation.
Reacting to the incident, Gyan suggested the penalty was a soft one, insisting Amartey went down too easily.
“I think the incident was a bit casual. From where I sit and how I saw it I think Daniel Amartey went down too easily but the referee was closer to the spot and probably had a better view of the situation,” the ex-Ghana captain said.
However, his remarks did not enthuse Alhaji Grunsah, who has described the veteran striker as ungrateful and a pretender.
“Asamoah Gyan is ungrateful and a pretender, he won’t even get the opportunity to become a ball boy, he should stop talking about the penalty against South Africa,” the King Faisal owner lashed out on Asempa FM.
Meanwhile, FIFA is yet to rule on the South Africa FA’s complaint against the referee who officiated the game against Ghana.
