Sulley Muntari endorses decision to axe him from Ghana's AFCON squad

Sulley Muntari has endorsed the decision by coach Kwesi Appiah to exclude him from Ghana’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations squad.

The AC Milan midfielder is unhappy he is not part of the Black Stars team for Africa’s flagship tournament because the coach has taken the decision in the best interest of the country.

Muntari was excluded from the Black Stars 26-man squad for next month’s tournament in South Africa on Thursday.

This came on the day he returned to action for his Italian Serie A side AC Milan after a six-month injury-induced absence.

The decision to exclude Muntari has been condemned by a section of the Black Stars fans but the midfielder insists only fully fit players must play for the national team.

“It’s better that the national team coach takes players to the African Cup of Nations who are 100% fit and I’ll stay here,” Muntari said.

“I’m sorry to be out of the national side but it’d be impossible to be out for 6 months and then go straight to the African Cup of Nations.

Muntari will stay to play for AC Milan when the tournament starts in South Africa on 19 January.

Ghana have been drawn in Group B to face DR Congo, Mali and Niger.

    If he can be featured at AC Milan then he is fit. The coach needed to consult extensively before excluding him.

  11. Boba Fett says:

    The AC Milan midfielder is unhappy he is not part of the Black Stars team for Africa’s flagship tournament because the coach has taken the decision in the best interest of the country – WHAT KIND OF ENGLISH IS THAT.

  12. PENDRIVE says:

    I really respect the way you have shown how profe ssional you are.

  13. king Ramon says:

    @boba fett,I think if u know the right grammatical expression,put it across rather than condemning vaguely. No one is perfect,we re all still learning. We want to learnt from u bro.

  14. bond says:

    see what marriage can cause. Sulley has really matured ever since he got married to Menaye. Sulley i really respect you now.GOD BLESS YOUR CAREER

  15. josh says:

    When AA was given this job, it was his man-management skills I was worried about. But looking from how Muntari (and Jordan) have been humble despite each’s exclusion. I want to commend our coach on what he is doing. I would like to believe the axing didn’t come as a shock to either player and the coach spoke to them in advance, but I won’t know, I guess.

  16. TRUE MATURITY,,Allah is with you, go blackstars

  17. PHOENIXKING says:
