Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari says he feels virtually no difference on his return to the Black Stars.
The AC Milan star missed key games for Ghana including the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations due to a bad knee injury.
Muntari had surgery to fix a knee problem last summer that kept him out of action for almost six months.
The 28-year-old has however made a triumphant return to first team action for his club – leading to his expected return to the Black Stars for the crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan.
The former Inter Milan midfielder however says he detects minimal difference in the Black Stars team despite being away for long.
“It’s like I have been out for just a week so it doesn’t change anything,” he said.
“It is my home, it is my family – the national team so there is no much difference.”
Muntari alongside captain Asamoah Gyan are the only surviving members from the golden generation of players that qualified Ghana for their maiden World Cup currently in the Black Stars team.
