(PHOTOS): Controversy over alleged Asamoah Gyan private jet

imagesA Facebook page claiming to belong to Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan created a storm online Tuesday when it shared pictures of what it said was a private jet that had been purchased by the Al Ain striker.

The accompanying caption read: “When you go to Rome, you do what the Romans do, when you come to Dubai, you live like a ‪#‎King, my new baby about to be unleashed, thank you Lord for your blessings and guidance. This is the meaning of my name BabyJet…”

The post generated mixed reactions on Facebook with some fans commending Gyan for acquiring the plane, while others critcised the striker for being wasteful.

Graphic Online can, however, point out that the said account is suspicious, because Asamoah Gyan does not have a publicly known Facebook account.

The striker mainly uses Twitter and Instagram to keep in touch with his followers.

Gyan himself took to Twitter to disassociate himself from the account, saying: “I want to repeat it again. I AM NOT ON FACEBOOK! So if you are talking to someone on FB that says it’s me it is NOT! Report it to the police.”
