Workers go on strike about pay, yet footballers are insulted over bonuses,' says Gyan.

 




The reaction that generally precedes player demands for winning incentives has been branded as hypocritical by former Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.

He claimed that footballers ought to be paid for their job just like how employees typically go on strike to collect their unpaid wages.

"Bonus payments are made to the national team. The veteran striker claimed on the Dentaa Show that "one journalist comes up with a narrative and people jump on it."

"This is our career; as a football player, I must be compensated. Why do doctors walk out of work? Footballers are the only ones you criticise because they receive bonuses, but you go on strike when you are not paid.


"Those same folks will tell you "you have a case" behind the scenes. However, they show hypocrisy when they use social media.When the Ghanaian national team threatened to boycott games during the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, the winning bonuses of the team came under scrutiny.


The Black Stars' participation in that competition was marred by problems with delayed bonuses; before the nation's last group match against Portugal, players even threatened to boycott.


The government flew more over $3 million in cash to Brazil to compensate the players, which was a scandalous incident.


Following that, many Ghanaians distanced themselves from the Black Stars, with others condemning their behavior as mercenary-like.
