Captain's wish: Gyan wants Muntari return

Asamoah Gyan ssay he would love to see suspended Black Stars midfielder Sulley Muntari back into the national team.

31-year-old Muntari remains suspended from international duty after attacking a high-ranking GFA official at the height of players agitation over the delayed payment of appearance fees at the 2014 World Cup.

The former AC Milan man was earlier this year widely reported to be ready to send an official apology to the Ghana FA, igniting hopes of his return to the team.

Muntari has however refused to satisfy this condition by the GFA over a year on after the Black Stars’ disappointing campaign in Brazil.

Gyan said: “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 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.’
