“Asamoah Gyan is one of the best players in Africa and he showed it today by scoring a great goal for his country.
“That’s why I respect a lot of African players, players like Drogba, Eto’O, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari. We get a lot of problems with our national teams, we get problems with our countries but we still show commitment and turn up to play.
“Look at the problems Asamoah Gyan and his family are going through. People are saying a lot of things they don’t know about and it’s sad. We all like Castro and we are all praying for him to come back. So I think it’s very bad what people are saying about Asamoah Gyan.
“He showed how good he is today, this is a player who showed how special he is by scoring a great goal today and I say congratulations.” – Adebayor, speaking to Journalist, Rusell Wiafe, after yesterday’s game.
