Guinea goalkeeper Naby Yattara feels no regret for injuring Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan in the final minute of Sunday’s emphatic 3-0 Afcon 2015 quarter final defeat to the Black Stars.
The heavily-criticised shot stopper thrust his foot into Gyan’s mid area in a rush challenge, and he was subsequently sent off for his action. But the goalkeeper says he does not feel remorse for the career-threatening challenge on the Ghana striker.
‘It is not an intention to do that [hurt Gyan],’ Yattara told a group of reporters on Tuesday.
‘If I lost the ball, he [would have] scored. It’s normal I go to take the ball,’ he continued.
‘Apologise? No, because it was not my intention. If I do apologise, it means I did it intention[ally]. It is not my intention to do the bad thing,’ the Guinea goalkeeper maintained.
Gyan currently looks very doubtful for Thursday’s semifinals clash with tournament hosts, Equatorial Guinea in Malabo.
