Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is ready to call up quartet Kevin-Prince Boateng, Sulley Muntari and the Ayew brothers for next month’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia.
Boateng and the Ayew brothers-Andre and Jordan- officially communicated their return to international football last week after self-imposed exiles.
Muntari apologized to Appiah after openly confronting the trainer and questioning the rationale behind his substitution in the dressing room after June’s World Cup qualifier at Lesotho.
There have been questions about the sincerity of the letters written by the four players but Appiah is focused on the task ahead.
“It’s not important to scrutinize their – players – decisions to return to the team,” Appiah told the Ghana FA’s official website.
“I think the focus should be on the game against Zambia and nothing else. Every Ghanaian who is available for the national team will always be considered.
“No disrespect to the other players. They have done a fantastic job up until now and we can and should only get better with the return of the players.”
Appiah is expected to name his squad by midweek for the two assignments against the Chipolopolo and a friendly against Japan three days later.
