Former Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan has disclosed how he wanted to hit Luis Suarez after the Uruguayan used his hand to deny Ghana from qualifying to the semifinals stage of the 2010 World Cup.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM, the former Sunderland player said he has let the issue off his mind after putting his legs in Suarez’s shoes.
“People spoke about the incident and it got into my head a bit. I remember when Sunderland faced Liverpool, during the exchange of handshakes, I watched him with some eye,” Gyan said.
“I wanted to even punch him because people had said things that had gotten into my head, but I realized I had to let it go because I would’ve done the same thing if I was Suarez.”
It will be recalled that the Black Stars were on the verge of becoming the first African team to reach the last four of the World Cup before losing on penalties to Uruguay after Luis Suarez used his hand to stop Dominic Adiyah’s goal-bound header.
