‘I Wanted To Punch Luis Suarez When We Met After 2010 World Cup Loss’ – Asamoah Gyan Reveals

Former captain of the Ghana Black Star team, Asamoah Gyan has revealed that he wanted to hit the Uruguayan player Luis Suarez after the loss in the 2010 world cup.

The Black Stars during the South Africa world cup reached the last-eight stage in what was just their second World Cup campaign.

Ghana was on the verge of becoming the first African team to reach a World Cup semi-final when they were awarded a penalty in added time of the second period of extra-time after Luis Suarez had used his hand to prevent Dominic Adiyiah’s header from finding the net.

The Uruguayan was given a straight red card but Asamoah Gyan wasted the consequent penalty after smashing it onto the bar before the ball looped over.

In a recent interview monitored by GhArticles.com, Asamoah disclosed that he wanted to hit Suarez after they met again in a Sunderland vrs Liverpool match.

According to him, he was navy at first but let it go because he would have done the same thing if he happens to be Suarez.

“To be honest, I wanted to punch him during my days at Sunderland. We (Sunderland) were playing a home game against Liverpool, so they came to exchange handshakes with us. To be frank, when he came close to me, I wanted to hit him because of the things people said to me but I decided to keep my cool” he said.
