Boateng & Muntari must apologise
The Ghana FA have insisted that Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari must apologise for their World Cup conduct before being considered for an international recall.
Upon his confirmation as Ghana manager, Avram Grant admitted that the door was open for disgraced pair Boateng and Muntari to return to the national side.
His revelation perhaps came as a consequence of the Black Stars’ tricky group—the Israeli manager, a Cup of Nations novice is keen to enlist as much high-end quality as possible.
The GFA have confirmed, however, that the players will only return if they issue an apology for their actions during the summer.
Ibrahim Sannie Daara, the FA’s spokesman, has supported Grant’s policy, but has admitted that the players must acknowledge their previous misdemeanours.
He had the following to say on Muntea FM, as reported by Ghanaweb: “Coach Avram Grant has not said anything different from what pertains. The fact that he said the door is open for them (Muntari and Boateng) doesn’t mean they will be considered for selection automatically, Sannie Daara told Muntea FM.
“The coach said one of the key conditions for call-ups is discipline. This means the players must abide by the demands for apology before they are considered.
“It is still on the files that the (two) players are suspended indefinitely so for them to be considered, that suspension must be overturned.
“It is the reason why the coach said discipline will be a key factor in call-ups so the two players must do the right thing before they are considered.”
