The new Ghana coach, who last month made a return to the job he had from 2012 to 2014, was speaking at his official unveiling on Tuesday.

 

“I have worked in Ghana for years and people should know my character by now. I do not hold grudges,” the coach told pressmen.

“If Sulley and Boateng are playing well like any other Ghanaian they will be considered.”

Background

During Ghana’s campaign at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Sulley Muntari was sacked from camp for physically assaulting Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah, while and Kevin Prince Boateng was handed a similar punishment for indiscipline, with reports that he verbally abused Kwesi Appiah.
