Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan says he consults Mallams to pray for him before games and there’s nothing wrong with that.
The 31 year old Al Ahli forward says Mallams are like the Islamic version of pastors, yet people misinterpret their role as being purveyors of black magic when they are simply like pastors.
Gyan appeared on the Delay Show when he revealed his penchants for seeing Mallams.
According to to him, football is a ‘spiritual exercise’, therefore one needs to be fortified spiritually to be able to perform well in it.
“You can’t just rise up and say you’re going to play football because it is a spiritual exercise,” the embattled Ghana captain told the tv show host.
“People have just used the word Mallam to mean something out of this world. Just as pastors lead Christians in prayers, Mallams lead Muslims in prayer.
“So there is nothing wrong in them praying for you to get success in your career or any endeavour in your life.
“You will need spiritual fortitude before you get into play and it’s not just for football but every other work.”
Gyan’s comments were passed on the Delay Show, which was aired over the weekend.
