Chairman of the Ghana Football Association Normalization Committee, Dr Kofi Amoah reveals he has received a call from Sulley Muntari for a place in the Black Stars squad ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Muntari is desperate to make the Ghana squad for the Cup of Nations after some time away from the team.
The former AC Milan midfielder together with Barcelona forward Kevin-Prince Boateng are currently serving suspensions from the National team after a fall-out with Coach Kwesi Appiah during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The two were sacked from camp for misconduct towards the Coach and has since been unable to get an invite to the Black Stars team.
Muntari, who is currently on the books of Spanish Segunda Division side Albacete is craving to make his second AFCON appearance having played for the Black Stars at the 2008 Cup of Nations hosted in Ghana.
“I had a call from Sulley Muntari and the way he was talking with passion I couldn’t believe it,” Amoah said on Metro TV.
“He said if coach Kwesi Appiah will only play him for 15 minutes, he will be grateful and accept it.”
“This is a player who was clubless but now playing regularly but I think the final decision is in the hands of the coach,” he added.
The 34-year-old last played for the Black Stars in the team’s 2-2 draw with Germany at the 2014 World Cup.
Coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to name a provisional list of 26 players in the coming days.
