Ghanaians fancy the downfall of people instead of lifting them - Ex-Hoffenheim forward Tagoe

Published on: 04 May 2021

Former Ghana and Hoffenheim striker, Prince Tagoe says Ghanaians fancy the downfall of people instead of lifting them after Asamoah Gyan was booed by a group of fans during Legon Cities game against Kotoko.

Gyan, who climbed off the bench in the 75th minute was booed by the Porcupine Warriors at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Royals suffered 1 -0 defeat to Kotoko courtesy Emmanuel Gyamfi's first-half strike in their match day 22 encounter.

“I think what happened to Gyan tells us the kind of country we are leaving in. Ghanaians fancy the downfall of people instead of lifting them," Tagoe, who played together with Gyan at the 2010 World Cup, told Angel TV. 

"I didn’t expect such a thing to happen, what happened was disgusting because he is here to help raise the standard of the Ghana Premier League.

“His presence in the league is a plus because the young ones are learning a lot from him.

"We have a lot of players who are willing to return to the GPL but what is preventing them from coming, it is because of something like this."

He added, “Gyan has not taken money from anyone [for which he should be booed for joining a different club]."

"Although he had an intention to play for Kotoko but if one reason or the other he is unable to join them, it doesn’t mean they should boo him because it might be that Kotoko were unable to meet his demands.

“I think it is unnecessary because Gyan has made his name in the game so we should be proud of what we have. I will not be surprised if Asamoah quits the GPL. I think it was a childish act from the fans.”
