“I have reflected over some comments I made this morning on Facebook and I wish to render my sincere apologies for these unguarded comnents.
I accept that as an ambassador for my country Ghana and a role model for many across the globe, I should not have reacted this way even in the face of the insults directed at my mother.
The words I used are unacceptable and offensive and does not represent my true values.
I hope the general public will accept my apology as I focus on helping the Black Stars to win the Africa Cup of Nations title.
I also want to use this opportunity to thank the fans for the overwhelming support they have given the Black Stars that has helped us to reach the stage of the competition.”
