“I’m not lazy” – Asamoah Gyan replies Herve Renard

first_img Source: Footy-Ghana Ghana’s all-time top scorer, Asamoah Gyan has hit back at former Black Stars assistant coach Herve Renard’s perception of him as lazy in training.Now the head coach of the Saudi Arabia national team, Renard worked under Claude Le Roy as the Black Stars’ physical trainer during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations.The 51-year-old, in an interview with TV3’s Juliet Bawuah, touted Gyan had qualities that should have seen him achieve better than he had in his illustrious career but expressed reservations about the striker’s attitude to training saying:“The quality of Asamoah Gyan was amazing. I was always impressed with his timing of headers. He was a very good goalscorer, fantastic player, amazing player.“But I have something to tell him. He was supposed to have a better career but he was lazy.“In training, he was lazy. He only likes the games. But he was the most important player but I know him and he didn’t like the training, he only likes the competition, the games.”But Gyan disagrees with the perception, arguing that there was more to delivering consistently than just ‘killing’ himself at training.The former Sunderland hitman is quoted by a Footy-Ghana.com source as saying:“I am not lazy. I put in 70% hard work and practice the basics needed at training. And, then, I give everything I have in games.“I work hard in games; the final output is what matters, and not during training. Consistency is what matters.”Footy-Ghana.com gathers Herve Renard’s opinion of Gyan’s attitude to training could be informed by an incident that occurred in the Stars camp. The striker, then with, had spoken up against the excessive nature of the physical training the Frenchman was putting the team through at training, our source revealed.Asamoah Gyan, is Ghana’s all-time leading marksman with 51 goals and Africa top-scorer having netted six times at the Fifa World Cup.last_img read more

Kenny Stills calls out Dolphins owner for hosting Trump fundraiser

first_imgDolphins owner Stephen Ross plans to host a big-ticket reelection fundraiser for President Donald Trump on Friday in the Hamptons — and wide receiver Kenny Stills thinks the move is hypocritical.”You can’t have a nonprofit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump,” Stills wrote on Twitter, sharing both a link to the Washington Post report about the fundraiser and a screenshot from Ross’ anti-racism RISE initiative’s website. 🤔 You can’t have a non profit with this mission statement then open your doors to Trump. https://t.co/sNBWfEXvLn pic.twitter.com/nNkRf2wJep— Kenny Stills (@KSTiLLS) August 7, 2019The RISE mission statement reads, “We are a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice and improve race relations.”MORE: An NFL player’s rant: Who do you cheer for? Developer Stephen Ross, of The Related Companies, (which developed Hudson Yards and owns @Equinox and @soulcycle) is hosting a fundraiser for President Trump in The Hamptons. $250,000 for lunch, a photo and a private roundtable. https://t.co/unTnaKTMav— Derick Waller (@wallerABC7) August 6, 2019From the Washington Post:”The price of entry to the events ranges from $5,600 to $250,000, according to invitations obtained by The Washington Post, with the costliest tickets offering the greatest access to Trump.”Stills was one of three players who continued to protest racial injustice and police brutality in 2018, either by kneeling during the national anthem or staying in the tunnel before each game. Fellow Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson and Panthers safety Eric Reid were the others.As news about the fundraiser spread, Trump faced criticism over recent anti-immigration rhetoric that several Democratic presidential candidates condemned as “racist.”Trump has also been vocally opposed to players protesting during the anthem, saying they are disrespecting the flag and the military.During an Alabama rally for then-Sen. Luther Strange in 2017, Trump collectively called NFL players who kneel during the anthem a “son of a b—” and said they should be removed from the league.In May 2018, NFL owners unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room.Prior to the league-wide policy, Ross was criticized by some for establishing a team policy that could fine or suspend players who protested during the national anthem. Ross backed down from that policy a day later, saying he’s “passionate about the cause of social justice” and he would not enforce punishment for protests. “You have to stand, proudly, for the national anthem or you shouldn’t be playing,” Trump said following the NFL’s announcement. “You shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. You have to stand proudly for the national anthem.”President Trump: “You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or you shouldn’t be playing. You shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country.” https://t.co/WbF4OMoDbM pic.twitter.com/m3VQJpKD2P— CNN (@CNN) May 24, 2018Stills caught 37 passes for the Dolphins in 2018 and recorded six touchdowns.He has been with Miami since 2015.last_img read more
