Twitter meltdown over Asamoah Gyan's captain's armband 'noise'

Sports Twitter meltdown over Asamoah Gyan's captain's armband 'noise'

Twitter went overdrive after Asamoah Gyan wore an armband for Ghana - with his OWN FACE on it during a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia on Sunday.

Gyan, 31, has justified the decision insisting it's nothing new.

But the action has heightened talks of a perceived 'fight' for the captaincy between himself and Andre Ayew - a claim he has consistently denied.

Many fans reacted on social networking site Twitter over the development which overshadowed the country's convincing win against the East Africans in Kumasi.

Did you see what I saw? @ASAMOAH_GYAN3 has his own arm band...I smell something fishy @CoachOpeele @OtiAdjei

Asamoah Gyan has CUSTOMIZED his captains armband. So Andre has to go for new one instead of just changing.
