Sulley Muntari reacts to calls for Ghana return


Former Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari has responded to the calls about potentially getting a call-up for Ghana's World Cup qualifiers.

The 37-year-old has been plying his trade for Ghanaian outfit Hearts of Oak for the past month and also scored his first Ghana Premier League recently.

Muntari is flattered by the rumours of a return to the Black Stars, but insists he's focused on helping Oaks in their league campaign.

“I’m pleased but the most important thing is Hearts of Oak now,” Muntari told StarTimes when asked about calls for a Ghana return.

“I came in, I got the chance to play for the club, it’s a big team here, the guys are amazing, coach and the staff also.

“So, I am very pleased to be here and also the fans are making things right, I’m home and it’s just a joy to be here.”

The Black Stars battle Nigeria in a two-legged affair later this month, with the winner securing a spot at the World Cup in Qatar.
