Italy-based midfielder Sulley Muntari arrived in Ghana on Tuesday night to watch the Black Stars match against Uganda on Saturday despite being indefinitely suspended from the national team, can exclusively reveal.

The AC Milan star, who was indefinitely suspended from the Black Stars for incidents at the World Cup in June, arrived at the Kotoka International Airport on Tuesday night.

He took permission from his Italian club to travel home to offer his support to the Black Stars to ensure qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.

With this weekend declared as a break for matches as it is international break, AC Milan granted him to permission to come to Ghana to support the Black Stars.

Muntari, who is known for his intense passion for the Black Stars, is not letting the suspension stand in his way of offering his support to his team-mates to ensure qualification for Africa's flagship football competition.

He will travel from his Accra base to Kumasi by the weekend to offer his support to the team but it is not known if he will turn up at the team's training ground to meet his colleagues, sources close to the player have told Ghana's leading football news outfit,

Muntari has been in excellent shape since the World Cup and scored in their opening Serie A match against Lazio resulting in their 3-1 victory.

He was suspended from the Black Stars for physically assaulting Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah and it is unknown when his suspension will be lifted.

    People don't get it. Sulley is in the country to catch the eye of the world cup commission set up by the president Somebody should please inform Justice Dzamepe for me that Sulley is in town and therefore he should invite him to tell his part of the story.

    On a more serious note,the FA should consider lifting the suspension based on his commitment and passion to the course of the Black Stars.Not that we dont have players to play but at any point in time,our best players should be paraded against any opposition....Sulley,just apologise to Ghanaians for what happened but not to any individual.You were indeed our best midfielder in the two matches you played at Brazil.

    Sulley should apologise to Ghanaians and Moses Parker as well. We are Africans and we must respect our elders. How will he feel if someone even insults his father the chief, not to talk of slapping him for whatever reason. Come Sulley, win my applause, take the move.

    He is also a Ghanaian and no one can prevent him from supporting the BS. He only has to stay away from the team because he is a bad example. He shd just give it up for ever playing for the BS b:cos that will not happen again.
