So er...

Former Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan has denied killing a rapper in a ritual sacrifice.

Rapper Castro and his girlfriend, Janet Bandu, were believed to have drowned in a jet ski accident while they were on holiday with Gyan at his resort in Ada, southern Ghana.

But authorities in Ghana have so far failed to find their bodies, leading to rumours that Castro’s corpse was used for a black magic ritual, most probably for financial gain.

Gyan, the all-time top scorer for the Ghanaian international side, left Wearside in 2011 on loan to UAE side Al Ain, where he is still playing.

On July 4 Gyan paid for a group of friends to visit the Aqua Safari Resort, in Ada, for a holiday.

The group included Emmanuel Tagoe, alias Game Boy and his sister Naa, Theophilus Tagoe, Castro, Alberta Tetteh (Anim Addo’s associate who brought along two female friends, Nana Akua Ayisi and Janet Bandu), Benjamin Owusu Ansah, Dauda Tetteh, Patrick Botchway, Akwasi Bonsu, Kwabena Boateng, Joseph Kissi, Seth Tetteh, DJ George, and lawyer Kissi Agyabeng.

Speaking from a press conference this afternoon Gyan’s lawyer Kissi Agyabeng said the trip was unremarkable.

On July 5 the group moved to the nearby Peace Holiday Resort where Castro performed alongside Gyan.

But on July 6 Castro and his girlfriend Janet Bandu took a ride on a jet ski and failed to return.

Mr Agyaben, speaking at a press conference more than 80 days since the couple’s disappearance, said the group went on to carry out a search when they spotted an unmanned jet ski and police were then informed.

He added: “When it became apparent that Castro and Janet had disappeared, an article appeared online which appeared to commiserate with Asamoah Gyan citing the recent loss of his mother and now the loss of his best friend.

“One would have thought that this would have been a point of reference to console the Gyans – and indeed, a good number of well-meaning persons expressed this sentiment and sought to encourage us to stand firm.

"To the thousands of individuals and institutions that came to our aid and to offer support, we express our gratitude.

“Sadly, the expression of empathy during a person’s moment of grief and utter dismay does not sell in the media.

"What sells in the media, and what indeed sold and is still selling in the media in Ghana are wild allegations and rumours directed especially at Asamoah Gyan – ranging from the absurd – of the imputation of criminality to him in the sense that he either murdered Castro or had him kidnapped – and ending with the ludicrous – that he sacrificed him spiritually to enhance his career.

“We had no hand in that occurrence. We have no moral or legal culpability whatsoever.

"None of us rode out into the open estuary with Castro and Janet Bandu.

"Castro rode out there on his own volition and none of us have the slightest idea as to what happened to them.

“We have only been guess working and conjecturing and making what appears to us to be intelligent deductions – in light of the facts available to us, especially the fact that when they rode out on the jet ski Janet Bandu was not wearing a life jacket.

“We know Castro all too well. He was our brother. We loved him as one of our own. We did everything together with him.

"You are all witnesses to the hit songs Castro has been featuring Asamoah Gyan on and the added popularity that gave him.

"Indeed, the duo were just about to release another song. We will never do anything to harm him.

“We are in unimaginable pain and shock and we will give anything to Castro and Janet back.”

Hey, at least he denies it.

In other silly news, what's better than a ridiculous, cheese-based football revelation? Two ridiculous, cheese-based football revelations!

Firstly, former Fulham manager, Felix Magath, has admitted to encouraging and injured player to rub magic German cheese on his legs to heal an injury.

Elsewhere, QPR defender Steven Caulker was handcuffed and briefly detained by Tesco Express for the theft of a rub of Philadelphia cream cheese. He was released without charge, and with the cheese.

South Africa's football captain and goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa has died after being shot. South African police say the 27 year old was shot at his girlfriends house in Vosloorus, south of Johannesburg but that is all the information they have released at the moment.

He only played for his club, Orlando Pirates, on Saturday.

Further information has been released on this...

Three men attempted to burgle the house, two entered armed whilst one stood guard outside - when they entered they came across Meyiwa and demanded any cash he had on him plus his mobile phone, when he refused or was not quick to reply (its not clear which yet) they shot him and fled.

The police have offered $14,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
