Samuel Anim Addo, the Business manager of Asamoah Gyan, expresses that he is amazed by the reports stating that the Al Ahli Dubai striker has been found guilty for having “unethical hair” which don’t conform to the laws in the UAE.
It was being reported that the player is included in the list of 46 players who were fined by the UAE Football Association for breaching its guidelines. The 31-year old iconic skipper is notorious for his Mohawk style of hair, with its famous number 3 inscription.
However, his Business manager says, “There is no problem at all because Gyan is aware of the rules. He changed his hair style before heading from China to the UAE on loan and even after the AFCON, he made sure his hair was good for the league.’’
Addo added, “I even thought that he had forgotten to work on his hair, thus, the story. Even if Gyan wants to try anything fancy with his hair, he will inform his club and the club will give him a response.’’
The manager further made it clear by saying that, “Nothing like that has happened. Gyan has played in the UAE before and is well aware of what pertains in the UAE and so, I do not understand where the story is coming from.”
The whole controversy arose as according to some interpretations of Islam, ‘Qaza’ styles of haircuts, are unlawful. Moreover, Waleed Abdullah the Saudi Arabian goalie was asked to cut his “un-Islamic” hair by the referee before a match for club side Al Shabab in 2012.
While Gyan was in club action on Wednesday despite of all this controversy and got a 3-0 victory over Hatta in the Arabian Gulf League.
