Asamoah Gyan warns blogger
Former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan has threatened to sue a Ghanaian blogger for publishing fake quotes linked to him.
The blogger at the centre of the issue, which got Gyan trending on Twitter days ago, Thosecalledcelebs shared fake quotes made up of a parody account.
The parody account using Asamoah Gyan’s name tweeted about the Ghana legend’s infamous penalty miss at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
“I intentionally missed the penalty because of my ex…I wanted to break her heart” the fake Asamoah Gyan on Twitter tweeted.
The blogger without checking started sharing the fake quotes and that has got Asamoah Gyan, who now plays his club football in Ghana for Legon Cities, angry.
“Those called Celeb! pull this useless story linked to me down and retract with an apology with immediate effect, if you fail to do that within the next 3hrs, you will hear from my lawyers. This abuse in social media must stop. My account is verified on Twitter… your work as a journalist involves due diligence,” Asamoah Gyan captioned a screenshot of the post on his Instagram.
