Asamoah Gyan hopes for Black Stars return for Sulley Muntari

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has lauded the qualities of midfielder Sulley Muntari as he admits the former AC Milan man will be a welcome addition to the current Black Stars setup.

Muntari has not featured for the Black Stars since the debacle at the World Cup in 2014 where he was sent out of the team’s due camp due to disciplinary issues alongside Kevin Prince Boateng.

Gyan was full of praise for Muntari but was quick to admit his inclusion in the team was out of his hands.

“We all know Sulley and what he brings to this team. His quality is immense and I will very glad to welcome him back,” he said

“He has scored very important goals for our country and so yes, we need him.”

“But I am not the coach and so can’t determine when he will earn a recall.”

“If the coach decides to recall him, we’ll be happy to have him back. But those kinds of decisions are not part of my job really.”

It is believed a public apology from Muntari will be the only way back to the Black Stars for him.
