Former Black Stars of Ghana forward, Asamoah Gyan has claimed that he has never smoked marijuana or drink alcohol in his entire life.
He made this revelation in an interview with Sompa FM based in Kumasi, where he stated that he hangs out with people who drink and smoke hard drugs and that he has never had a feel of it.

However, he claimed that maybe the smoke from Shisha while with the boys at the club will be the only smoke that may have entered his system.
“I’ve never drunk alcohol in my entire life. I don’t drink alcohol and I don’t smoke marijuana too. The only thing I have smoked in my life is shisha,”
The football star also spoke about his book “The Legyandary” saying that it provides a blueprint for people who want to be like him.
Gyan made his international debut at the age of 17, three days before his 18th birthday. Gyan scored on his senior International debut for Ghana against Somalia on 19 November 2003 in the 90th minute.He came on for Nana Arhin Duah in the 77th minute in a 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier, three days before he turned 18 years; helping Ghana to win that game, and making him the youngest ever player to score for Ghana.
He scored four times in seven matches during that successful World Cup qualifying campaign, helping Ghana to qualify for their first world cup in the history. He was part of the 2004 Ghana Olympic squad, who exited in the first round, having finished in third place in Group B.
He also scored the fastest goal of the tournament after 68 seconds. The strike was also Ghana’s first ever goal in the FIFA World Cup, coming in the game against the Czech Republic on 17 June at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne, Germany, which set the Black Stars on their way to a 2–0 victory.
He missed a penalty later in the game, and received a yellow card ruling him out of the final group game for trying to take the penalty too early. In Ghana’s defeat to Brazil in the round of 16, he was sent off in the 81st minute after collecting his second booking of the match (for diving).Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
