Asamoah Ghana has denied a meeting with Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo, launching a tetchy social media fight with GHANAsoccernet.com
The football website reported on Tuesday that Gyan, together with Andre Ayew were billed to hold a meeting with the Ghanaian leader.
Circling media reports claimed the meeting is aimed at ironing out the differences and seeming tension between the two players.
But Gyan, who plays for Kayserispor, has been ruffled by the news, launching a tirade at the website and threatening to block their account on twitter.
“Make stupid stories for money cos negative stories travel. I don’t blame you. Next unnecessary story again and you blocked cos you not credible and you at unprofessional. You will never learn,” Gyan wrote in reply to the tweet of the story on twitter.

It appears the continuous talk of the captaincy row has irked the country’s all-time leading scorer, who has continuously attacked GHANASoccernet.
The former Sunderland hitman has been on a crusade against GHANASoccernet.com over negative reportage claims against him in recent times.
Gyan has used several unprintable words on a portal which has been at the forefront of highlighting his positives for the past 12 years.
The Ghanaian leader is determined to smoke the seeming tension between the two players and their allies over continuous banter over the leadership of the national team.
Both Gyan and Andre have consistently brushed aside claims of power struggle in the team, but reports of disquiet between the two is just refusing to wash away.
Gyan, who is Ghana’s all-time top scorer, took the armband from Stephen Appiah.
But his reign has been punctuated with controversy amid claims Andre Ayew has been undermining him in the team.
It is widely feared the tension between the two players could derail the team’s chances of ending a 36-year wait for an African title in Cameroon 2019.
