Kwesi Appiah didn’t have me in his plans for AFCON 2019 – Asamoah Gyan

first_imgFormer Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan believes that head coach of the side, Kwesi Appiah did not have him in his plans for the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.Gyan, who came off the bench against Cameroon and Tunisia, believes that this might have accounted for the lack of minutes at the competition.He said he accepted the coach’s decision not to start him but suggested that not using him off the bench a lot more was unfortunate.“I feel I wasn’t in Kwesi Appiah’s plans for the AFCON. With my 17 years of experience, I could tell.“If I’m not a starter, I accept it, that’s the coach’s decision but at least…,” he told Accra-based station, Joy FM, tailing off at the end.Gyan did not play in the Black Stars group opener against Benin but came off the bench in the 76th minute against Cameroon in the next game.He then remained on the bench for the game against Guinea Bissau, a match the Stars won 2-0.Against Tunisia in the Round of 16, Gyan came on in the 84th minute, with Ghana down by a goal and played a role in the own goal scored by the North Africans.He then played the full duration of extra time but did not take a penalty in the shootout as Ghana went out.The player is convinced that he could have made a big difference to the Stars’ performance at the tournament had he been a regular in the team.He feels that he was unable to make a significant impact for the Black Stars due to his limited gametime at the AFCON.“I think I could have made a difference if I had played more but that’s the coach’s decision,” Gyan addedGyan was particularly peeved by being left on the bench for the Black Stars’ match with Guinea-Bissau even when the Stars were 2-0 up.When Gyan was asked whether he believes Kwesi Appiah should remain as coach, he responded that the decision was not in his hands.“Those who employed me are the ones who’ll have to make that decision. They see the facts, they see what’s going on. The fans will also have their opinions but they will make the decision. Kwesi Appiah is a human being and he makes mistakes.”He, however, stated that he was still willing to play for the Black Stars under “any coach”, including Appiah, should he be called into the team.“Maybe he’s changed his decision. If I’m called, I’m available for the Black Stars”last_img read more

Scandal rocks FIFA Player of the Year awards as coaches cry foul

first_imgCoaches from Bolivia, Albania, Equatorial Guinea, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Kuwait and Vanuatu have alleged that the 2013 Ballon d’Or votes were rigged, according to Catalan outlet La Xarxa and and Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo. Via Danish paper BT and Norway’s Dagbladet (h/t 101 Great Goals), the aforementioned coaches all suggest their original votes were recorded and published differently from what they had initially submitted. Jorvan Vieira, who coaches the Kuwait national team, reportedly told La Xarxa (via BT), “I think there has been any fraud here. I voted for (Zlatan) Ibrahimovic.” That despite FIFA’s official record of the submissions showing that he voted for Lionel Messi as the winner, followed by Neymar and the eventual winner, Cristiano Ronaldo.  The same applies to the coach of the Fijian national team, Juan Carlos Buzzetti. FIFA recorded his vote with Ronaldo in first position ahead of Franck Ribery and Robert Lewandowski. He also insists his votes have been amended, claiming, “I voted for Cristiano, Messi and Ribery. I have in no way voted Lewandowski. He is not on par with the other three.” But the harshest, most colourful of all the criticism came from Albania’s coach, Gianni De Biasi. He didn’t hold back in a statement (NSFW), telling Mundo Deportivo what he thought of the scenario after his first-place vote for Ronaldo apparently changed to one for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.  “I gave five points to Ronaldo, three to Messi and one to Ibrahimovic. I did not give five to Ibrahimovic,” De Biasi said. “This is bullshit and lies.” These allegations are the second within a week which refer to the Ballon d’Or votes being doctored, as Qatar national coach Fahad Al Zarraa previously claimed his president forced him to vote for Ronaldo, as per sportsfan.com.  The showpiece event saw Ronaldo pick up the gong for the second time in his career, staving off competition from Messi and Ribery, who accompanied him on the three-man shortlist. Whilst it would be difficult to deny that Ronaldo deserved the award, these emerging allegations will cast doubts over the validity of the vote, especially after FIFA extended the voting deadline until after Ronaldo’s one-man show in the World Cup playoffs, according to Ian Ladyman of the Daily Mail. The extension only served to raise suspicions that FIFA were pushing for a Ronaldo win after Sepp Blatter’s unsavoury remarks about the Portuguese winger.  The FIFA president claimed back in November that Ronaldo has “more expenses at the hairdresser” than his great rival Messi, per The Guardian. Ronaldo scored a sensational 66 goals in 56 games in 2013, per BBC Sport. He’s started 2014 in excellent fashion too, scoring four times in Real Madrid’s first five games of 2014, per WhoScored.last_img read more
