Asamoah Gyan laughs over haircut warning

Asamoah Gyan

Ghanaian footballer Asamoah Gyan has made a joke out of a warning fired by the United Arab Emirates Football Association (UAEFA) over his haircut.

The 31-year-old is among 46 foreign players plying their trade in the United Arab Emirates who have been warned for unethical haircuts.

This comes as a call for a change of hairstyles to suit the Islamic environment.

Having received the warning, Gyan is said to have laughed over the matter contrary to expectations. As a matter of exercising human rights, he was expected to act defiant.

According to Gyan’s manager Samuel Ado, the Black Stars hitman took it as a joke, a sign that he is going to comply with UAEFA rules.

In an interview with BBC Radio, he implied that his charge has knowledge about the rules considering that he switched to another haircut when he was moving to the Arabian Gulf League side Al Ahli from Chinese side Shanghai SIPG, on loan.

According to UAEFA, a written warning to the concerned party is the first stage of the process. Failure to take heed to the warning will attract heavy penalties ranging from fines to dismissals.

In this regard all the warned players are expected to cut their hair to suit the environment.

United Arab Emirates is an Islamic country and some teachings of the religion prohibits haircuts that only removes hair from selected parts of the head.

This is in fear of corrupting kids as they may end up copying the unethical hairstyles and in the end find themselves in conflict with Islamic religion.

Gyan is in mohawk haircut but as the saying goes, when you are in Rome you do what Romans do, he does not have a choice but switch to a proper style according to the rules.

  2. An engineer said: When I was young I decided to go to medical school. At the entrance exam, we were asked to rearrange the alphabets P N E I S and form the name of an important human body part which is most useful when straight. Those who answered SPINE are doctors today, while the rest are Engineers…

    3. Zimenez ndizimene amaziwa akristu akumalaw bas zomvetsa chison kwambiri kut sakuziwa chimene akuchita pempho langa kwa inu aslam let this people hi don’t know nothing about Islam

    1. Quran 3:85, ” and who ever seek religion other than Islam , it will never be accepted of him and in the here after he will be one of the losers.

    2. If the Muslims are in minority, they use Quran 5:59 ” o people of the scripture , do not hate us for what has revealed to us because most of you are not righteous. BUT IF THEY ARE IN MAJORITY THEY USE Quran 5: 51″ o you who have believed, do not take Christians and Jews as a friend. They are in fact the friend of each other and who ever is a friend to them among you, then he is one of them.”

  4. zomwe amalesatu asilam ndi zoipa.salesa munthu kupanga zabwino.moti ngankhale iweyo ungamete ngati momwe wametela gianimo? uganize mofasa. chikhriatu usafanizile ndi chisilam ndizosiyana kutalika kwake ndi kumwamba ndi pasi.chisilam chimadzudzula chinthu choipa pomwe chikhristu poti ndi gen samadzudzula akuti kuopa kuthangitsa anthu.ukiti bwaaaa

  5. That’s stupidity of its own kind 4 the inhabitants of that land. A country whereby nobody is allowed 2 feel free in his own skin. We can’t be stupid Moslems all of us in the world. They must respect the rights and feelings of people outside their religion. If Islam is like that then its not from God but just from mere barbarians. Laws must be from God but not frm humans. Where did God advised the people how to keep their heads? Fuck Islam and its people!

    1. They must learn from Christians whereby we welcome people from all nations to practice what they believe in without interfering with their religions in our countries. We respect the fact that they don’t eat pigs. We don’t force them to eat it.

      1. Atola nkhani aku Malawi ndi olephera , as u can see the pic…the hair cut ilibe vuto koma zomwe dzalembedwa m’mbalimo ndi zomwe zayambitsa nkhani so mukati mulankhure monyoza Islam mupindura palibe cos ali m’dziko mwawo sakulamura a Malawi. be civilized pliz


    2. Aise dont speak like that ngat ulibe mzako msilamu or as if ur neibour is nat a muslim or as if someone near you isnt a muslim mmalakhula bwanj kodi ndi pa facebook tu apa

    3. Fuck u Abdul Rashid Asima, yes this is Facebook and I speak my mind. U can’t tell me wht to speak or not. I’m not a moslem and will never be. It looks like u people are dictators. U want when u say ‘ jump’ then everyone must do so. This is a platform where we express our views with no fear. It is where we educate each other and whereby the blind like u can open their eyes. Where did u see a person of his status like Asamoah be told what 2 do on his hair as if he has no brain? Islamic people got no brains. All wht u know is war. U are not even afraid now to hunt 4 me just to put me a bullet yet u say u are holly. I’m not scared of u murder fuckerz!

    4. kamwanadala…calm down brother n think twice swearing doesnt make u a good man unless showing ur stupidy n hatred.

    5. How can I calm down while Moslems still exist? I’ll never cool down as long as this ruthless religion is present together with its idiots.

    6. For fuck sake… we all know who the best judge is, how the hell do u call Muslims names like that? Stop feeling like you good at swearing and chatting shit

    7. The very same fact that you can swear like this, clearly proves that Christianity is not a good religion either, because you didn’t and you still not showing courtesy either! Showing so much rancour, proves that you have personal deep sitter issues you want to vent it at Islaam! It’s a shame.

  6. Kungoti a silamu mmmmm bodza, ndi anthu oti mitu yawo mmmmm kaya, always they try their best sugarcoating themselves, there is no any connection btwin hair cut and fearing Almighty GOD, now mukamapita maiko achikhristu, monga Philippines, Rome southern region of Ghana as well as Malawi etc muzimeta ndevu zanu zambirizo, n take out yo robs put on suits, bwanji mumadzikonda chotere???

    1. Then kumalawi kuno malamuro amenewo abwera ndi ndani? kupepera kweni kweni uku

  7. Go there u wil see urself, strictly SHARIA LAW. No smocking, no alcohol drinking just to mention a few. so they dont like Western life even muzik u cant listen to hiphop there. Men are forced to keep beards no shaving, jst imagine such kind of life

    1. Thats not true, the truth is that when u want to be consuming alcohol u must apply for a licence and u must not b a Muslim. Not every 1 there is a Muslim

  8. Ithink ugot nothing 2 post at ‘e moment,how can u let us know about #Asamoah? pali nkhani zambiri zomwe zuchitika mayiko akunja komanxo mdziko muno lyk ma#floods ndi zina zambiri.inu nde bax bizzy posting this?#M24 uneed 2b serious this pointing tym

  9. I remember the then President of Republic of South africa Thabo Mbeki Once Visited there ,He was forced to Dress in Those Gaons( lobs),name it your self. The same Applies with this Assamoah Gyan story and I’m not Surprised.

  10. Ithink ugot nothing 2post at this time,how can u tell us about #Asamoah but their’s more things in our country to let us know about it??kodi #Madzi panopa axiya kuwononga katundu,komanxo #Chaponda waleka kuotcha ma #files?
