The captain of the Black Stars Asamoah Gyan has launched a verbal tirade at radio presenter Patrick Osei Agyemang alias Countryman Songo for describing the players of the senior national male team as fools.
Gyan who found his voice after the Stars thumped Congo 1-5 in the reverse fixture had some harsh words for the popular radio presenter in an interview with Accra-based radio station Hot FM.
“Some people were born to be negative thinkers and always wish for something bad to happen to get themselves going. It is unpatriotic and unnationalistic for anyone to wish for something bad to happen to the state simply because he will have people to lash at,” he told Hot FM.
“In every country, we have builders of the state and destroyers. That particular guy (Songo) is a destroyer. He does not care about positive news. He only dwells on negativity.
“But I don’t blame him. I blame those behind the show because they make money from it and do not care about the development of the state,” he added.
“They allow such a stupid guy to always go on radio or television to talk foolishly. For him to have gone on television to call Black Stars players as fool is unfortunate.
“After the game in Kumasi he was hailed by some people and he was happy because he had something to say since the tem had failed to win. I don’t care about someone like him because I think he does not have somebody like me in his family,” Gyan noted.
