Ghana Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has debunked media reportage suggesting that he failed medicals with English Championship side Reading.
He insisted that “the reports about the failed medical were unprofessional” and “false”
Gyan moved straight to the UAE to sign for Al Ahli on a season-long loan from his mother club Shanghai SIPG following news that he would require eight more weeks to reach full fitness with the English Championship side.
However after sealing a deal with UAE side and returning to Ghana for the AFCON qualifier against Rwanda, the 30-year-old revealed in an interview with the media that he failing medicals at Reading is never true.
He said the deal with Reading was practically done and he was moments away from signing but when the club demanded that he skipped the AFCON, he walked away.
Gyan added that “Reading’s demands were disrespectful so he walked away,” saying “I did not fail the medical.”
