Ghana coach will not call up Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng until suspension is lifted

Muntari and Boateng are serving indefinite bans from the Black Stars

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says he will not invite Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng back to the Black Stars until their indefinite suspension is lifted.

The influential duo have been banned from the Ghana national team for engaging in acts of indiscipline during the 2014 World Cup.

Muntari who plays for AC Milan physically abused a high ranking Ghana FA official while Boateng has been punished for allegedly insulting the coach.

Muntari has since refused to comment on the altercation.

Kevin-Prince Boateng on the other hand has said a lot to the German press throwing allegations at Ghana FA officials and the coach to primarily claim innocence.

The GFA meanwhile placed an indefinite suspension on the duo who were sacked from the Ghana camp hours before facing Portugal in the final group match at the World Cup.

With some growing muted calls for the return of the influential duo, Appiah says they will not be considered for any international assignments unless the indefinite suspension placed on their heads are lifted.

“Sulley and Kevin have been suspended by the FA and until the suspension is lifted I will not consider them,” Appiah confirmed.

“I believe they deserved the suspension for what they did.

“But ultimately they are Ghanaians and cannot be left out of the team that belongs to Ghanaians.”

Sulley Muntari meanwhile is in Ghana with the intention of traveling to Kumasi to offer support to the Black Stars in their opening 2o15 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda on Saturday.

    Lift what suspension from who? You mean those spent talents? ‘akai’ they are finished with the BS for good. They better concentrate on their clubs before some young talents in their clubs relegate them into bench warmers. FOOLS!

    Boro u dont knw wat u ar sayin..we really need these two players..did u see hw our midfield was totally useless against Portugal????sulley is on top form nd he is de man hu cn partner Rabiu nt dose tiny tins lyk agyemang badu

  3. simon says:

    this shows how useless the coach is at least for a person like muntari.
    every good coach in the world will try to find a way out to get his best player .
    why does muntari not behave this way with milan?
    because the coach is a weak person with no personality.
    enough of this scrap. kwasi is a toddler in coaching and should rather quit before he will be over thrown not sacked.

    GUYS I LIKE MUNTARI VERY MUCH BUT CMON WE ALL HAV 2 ADMIT PUNCHIN AN OFFICIAL IS WAYYYYYYY OUT OF HANDS.WW NEED HIM BUT HE NEEDS 2 BE PUNISHED. IF THIS WAS A EUROPEAN
    TEAM HE WOULD HAV BEEN BANDED FOR YRS. GH PLAYERS ONLY SHOW OFF IN GHANA BELIEVE ME.THEY LET THEIR EGO GET IN THE WAY.NOW BACK 2 KEVIN WE DNT NEED HIM.IN THE WCUP HE WAS THE WEAKEST LINKS . NOW WITH ESSIAN THATS ANOTHER ISSUE

  12. Elorm Lucky says:

    @Ibrahim, Sulley is a good player but dont say no one can play his position better.And for ur doubt Kwadwo Asamoah offer a good athletism and working rate more than him in that respect.Baba Abdul Rahman is the young talent 2 occupy the left back role

  13. Emmaxy says:

    What is hitting different from slapping? Is not almost all the same? But suarez even have opportunity that he can play again so those who are criticising muntary should stop it. I don’t care about Kevin but I believe 90% ghanaians still need muntari. Bring back SULLEY OOOOO TOM!!

  14. sterlingz says:

    Ghanaians have forgotten about Essien so soon……

  15. Menshack says:

    Ghanaians talk too much.Pls let’s think of the match ahead.Sulley made a mistake but the GFA also caused it.I think they should all resign too.Kwasi Nyantakyi is a professional thief.He went to report Dr.K.K Sarpong to Otumfo but he n his cronies steals from players bonuses.Shameless Fool.Fire burn all

  16. the pun says:

    hmm…sulley nd kevin’s suspension alone even gives the team members very low morale jux take a deep look at da match wit the Portuguese,it ws da worse match gh played…instead of this suspension i think they shd be rather corrected in a differnt way than causing more harm to the nation nd the die hard funs.
