GFA Confirms Asamoah Gyan’s Vouch “Majeed Ashimeru” Is Injured Among Other Five Players

Viral tweet post shared by former captain of the Black Stars Asamoah Gyan has raised many to share their controversial opinion to the tweet.

The former Sunderland player posted “This guy Majeed Ashimeru is the best midfielder in Ghana, after Thomas Partey, PERIOD. I have kept quiet on this but this nonsense must stop. SMH”.

The Black Stars coach Otoo Addo has released his 27 players to face Nigeria in the World Cup qualification come Friday 25th March 2022 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Culled from the official website of the Ghana Football Association [GFA] with the headline “GFA WISHES INJURED PLAYERS SPEEDY RECOVERY”, the GFA has listed six players who were called to face Nigeria but were injured.

According to their release, Asamoah Gyan’s favourite Majeed Ashimeru, Antoine Semenyo, Baba Abdul Rahman, Samuel Owusu, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, and Kamaldeen Sulemana were all handed call ups to the senior national team and were expected to report to camp on March 20, 2022, but failed to join the rest of the squad due to injuries at the respective club sides.

Team Doctors of the respective clubs of the players wrote and officially inform the GFA of their injury situations and confirmed their unavailability for the double-header against Nigeria.

The GFA will continue to communicate with team doctors of the respective clubs and monitor the recovery of the players.

It’s the hope of the Association that injured players will recover quickly and join the senior national team for future assignments.

As they continue their recovery process, the GFA remains firm in the belief that the players will join all Ghanaians to support the team in our quest to make a fourth appearance at the FIFA World Cup.


However, Asamoah Gyan has apologised for his earlier tweet made on the official handle tweeting he was carried by emotion.

I still insist that Ashimeru deserves to be in this current Black Stars BUT am sorry for using the word “ Nonsense “ in my statement so I unreservedly withdraw that word, I was carried by my emotions. Go Ghana
