Black Stars management committee member Yaw Boateng Gyan has emphasized the importance for ‘retired’ Ghana players desirous of making a return to make their decision official.
The Ghana FA is expecting letters from Kevin-Prince Boateng, Andre and Jordan Ayew on their hinted decision to return to the Black Stars.
Many Ghanaians are clamouring for the return of these players as they feel their quality will strengthen the Black Stars ahead of future assignments especially with the deciding 2014 World Cup qualifier against Zambia fast on the horizon.
There are however no signs at present these letters will be coming anytime soon.
The Ghana FA however says it will not settle on a compromise on the mode of the return of these players – insisting they must put in official letters to seal their return.
And Black Stars management committee member Boateng Gyan whose relative Kevin-Prince Boateng is amongst players expected to write to the Ghana FA to rescind their decision to leave the national team supports the stance taken by the association.
“I initially did not understand the whole fuss about players writing letters to rescind their decisions not to play for the national team,” he told Accra-based Montie FM.
“However upon seeking further education I have come to the conclusion it is very vital for administrative purposes.
“Their clubs may not release these players because understandably they will have no official notification to this effect.
“So you are presented with a case where players can be called and their clubs will refuse to release them and even drag you to FIFA and all that. This we don’t need.”
