Father of Asamoah Gyan, has denied the quotes about the age of his son that have been attributed to him by some reports.

George Baffour Gyan has been alleged to say that the striker is ten times older than his known age of 30.

The reports about his alleged quotes went viral as the Black Stars captain celebrated his 30th birthday recently.

The Shanghai SIPG striker threw a lavish party over the weekend at his Accra mansion to mark his birthday.

The father of four has however denied those reports saying it was an attempt to get at his successful son.

“I am very shocked by these reports. How and where did I say that Asamoah Gyan is 40, how old is even my first born?” Baffour Gyan father of Asamoah Gyan told Montie FM.

“I have never granted an interview with anyone or any media house. I have four children with the first being a lady and the last being Asamoah Gyan.”

He went to clear up the reports by confirming the age of all his four children.

“My first born is 39, Baffour who follows is 36, then comes Opoku who is 33 before Asamoah who is 30. They all have three-year intervals separating them,” the father continued.

“I just can’t understand how someone will make such a publication.

“Perhaps these reports are motivated by jealousy because I just can’t understand.

“It is very clear that some people want to use all means necessary to destroy my son but he is blessed and no one can destroy him.”
