Former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has chided JOY FM, a station under the Multimedia Group Company Limited for a post about how Ghanaians feel about his last gasp penalty miss at the 2010 world cup against Uruguay which was sighted by unitedshowbiz.com.gh. The Twitter handle of the media house read ” Fellow Ghanaians, does Asamoah Gyan’s penalty still hurt you?
Let’s hear from you, share your tweets with a hashtag #JoySMS ” A very angry Gyan replied by saying ” I have lost respect for you guys. From today, @Joy997FM is out of my list. You should be ashamed of your self.Learn how to respect. Smh “
Events of the said match are very fresh in our minds as Ghana played Uruguay at the 2010 WorldCup quarterfinals with the scores tied at 1-1 when a goal-bound header in the dying embers of the game was stopped by Luis Suarez with his hands. This earned Ghana a spot kick and the what happened afterwards is something a very Ghanaian does not want to relive.
Also, if it can be remembered,this is a very emotional issue for Mister Gyan as he his late mum advised him never to take a penalty for Ghana, hence may have fuelled his anger with the media outfit for bringing up the topic.
