Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah has put all talks of his possible return to the Black Stars to rest by stating he is no longer interested in a comeback.
The 30-year-old told GHANAsoccernet.com last month that he would consider a return after retiring from the team last year.
Pundits have been craving the recall of the Cesena star but the 30-year-old has explicitly stated rejoining the national team is not an option.
Popular sports administrator Isaac Tetteh was the latest to make a plea for his inclusion after dazzling in the Michael Essien Peace Charity match played in Accra two months ago.
But reaction to his recall was mixed which has resulted in his decision to pull the plug on his possible return.
“I don’t want to talk about the Black Stars. I’m not interested in a return. I have taken a decision and that is final,” Appiah said.
Appiah quit international football after the 2010 Fifa World Cup finals in South Africa last summer.
He received a Sports Writers Association of Ghana Award on Saturday night for his dedicated service to the Black Stars on Saturday night.
