Former Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko playmaker, Charles Taylor has questioned the current fitness of Sulley Muntari and states he isn’t good enough to be part of the Black Stars squad for the game against Nigeria.
Muntari- the 2010 UEFA Champions League winner with Inter Milan, made a sensational 20 year return into the Ghana Premier League to sign for reigning champions, Hearts of Oak prior to the commencement of the second round.
His presence has really been felt, though he is yet to taste his first league win but starred very well in the ‘Phobians’ 2-1 victory over sworn rivals Asante Kotoko to win the President Cup.
Having exhibited his set piece and ball distribution qualities, there has been lots of commentaries in the country with football fans calling on Black Stars head coach Otto Addo to recall him back into the senior national team.
But Charles Taylor shares different opinion and believe the country need serious players for the game against Nigeria and not Sulley Muntari who is now looking to regain a full match fitness. He said on Angel TV;
“Sulley Muntari is not a Black Stars material for the the Nigeria clash. We need serious players! He should focus on Hearts of Oak so he gain fitness, he can be called when Ghana qualifiers for the World Cup
The 37 year old has been out of the national team for almost eight years now with his last appearance happening to be the 2014 World Cup which was held in Brazil.
