Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari is desperate to return to the Black Stars team ahead of the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
Sulley Munatri has pleaded with the chairman of the Normalisation Committee, Dr. Kofi Amoah, to be included in the squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
According to Amoah, he received a phone call from the Spain-based midfielder who said he will even accept the chance to play for the Black Stars for 15 minutes at the tournament in Egypt.

However, Amoah has now told Black Stars coach Appiah to consider whether to name Muntari in the squad even if he won't play a starting role in the squad at the tournament in Egypt.
“I had a call from Sulley Muntari and the way he was talking with passion I couldn't believe it,” Amoah said on Metro TV.
“He said if coach Kwesi Appiah will only play him for 15 minutes, he will be grateful and accept it.
Amoah added that, the final decision to include Muntari in the squad for the 2019 AFCON relies on coach Appiah.
Appiah is keen on naming a strong squad for the tournament but Muntari has made just two appearances in the Spanish second tier since joining Albacete five months ago.
Muntari has played 84 times for Ghana with 20 goals to his credit.
The Black Stars will play in Group F of the AFCON alongside Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
The 34-year-old has not played for Ghana since he was sacked from the Black Stars during the 2014 World Cup for indiscipline under coach Appiah who is keen on instilling discipline in the squad.
