In an interview with Delay on ‘Delay Show’, the Shanghai SIPG striker revealed what went down between him and Sarah Kwablah.
‘She sent me a message on social media and we became friends, so after 2015 AFCON tournament, I came to Ghana and we met at STC where I train and because I’m married I introduce her as friend to my colleagues and after the training we drove in my dirty training kits to her house and we had sex” he explained.
Although the captain confessed to having had sex with Sarah, he denied raping her
“I will not deny sleeping with Sarah Kwablah, we both enjoyed the love making but she twisted the story and accused me of raping her, we had a good time”.
According to him, the lady and her family made those accusations up in order to extort money from him. Gyan also revealed that he told his wife with whom he has three children about it when the news started making rounds online.
“I told her the whole truth about the whole incident. She understood me because she knows I will not lie and forgave me. I would not have held a grudge against her if she decided to file for divorce over the incident”, he revealed.
