The former AC Milan midfielder's apology comes two years after he physically assaulted a top GFA official, Moses Parker, at the Black Stars' hotel - a development which got him suspended indefinitely from the national team.

In the letter, Muntari acknowledged that his conduct had caused Ghana embarrassment, adding that upon reflecting on what happened, he was deeply sorry.

He offered an apology to officials at the GFA who he said might have been offended by his actions.

Muntari, however, failed to mention Moses Parker by name.

The midfielder, who played in three World Cups for the Black Stars, indicated his willingness to play for the team when called upon.

Letter of apology

I write to express my sincere apology to the Ghana Football Association and the entire nation for any embarrassment that my action in Brazil brought to the Black Stars Team, the Ghana Football Association and my beloved country Ghana.

I have reflected on what happened and I am deeply sorry and apologize to all the stakeholders in the GFA who were offended by my actions.

Ghana has a special place in my heart, and I will forever be indebted to my country and all the fans who have supported me from the beginning.

I am always available to play for the Senior National Team of Ghana whenever I am invited.

Yours faithfully,
