Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has reacted angrily to Majeed Ashimeru’s shock omission from the Black Stars squad.
The midfielder who is enjoying a fantastic season in Belgium is not in the Black Stars squad for the tie against Nigeria in the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off.
“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,” Gyan tweeted.
He later deleted the tweet and apologised.
“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.”
Ashimeru made his debut for the Black Stars in 2017 against Benin.
For Anderlecht this campaign, the midfielder has netted three goals and added two assists in 31 Jupiler Pro League games.
But has recorded three goal contributions, scoring one and assisting two in his last seven starts.
