- Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe argues Sulley Muntari should not be forced onto the Black Stars technical team
- Muntari's recent performance with current league champions Hearts of Oak has sparked discussions of his inclusion into the Black Stars squad
- Meanwhile, Black Stars head coach Otto Addo is yet to announce his squad to face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the World Cup play-off
Board member of Accra Hearts of Oak Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has hinted that Sulley Muntari should not be pushed to the handlers of the Black Stars.
Muntari's performance for the current Ghana Premier League champions has been impressive.
He has mustered a goal and an assist in six outings for the Phobians, laced with virtuoso displays from midfield which has generated discussions of his inclusion into the national team.
With fast-spreading calls for his inclusion in the yet to be named Black Stars squad, Dr Nyaho Tamakloe believes such a call should be left to the technical team.
“Don’t push him to the Black Stars. If he feels like doing it, he will offer himself." The experienced football administrator told Accra based radio station Asempa FM.
Dr Tamakloe was, however, quick to note that Muntari will deliver should he receive a chance to return to the senior men's national team.
“And when he gets there, he’s a hardworking boy and he will deliver,” he added.
Ghana will play the first of the two-legged affair with Nigeria on Friday, March 25, at the Cape Coast stadium, with the reverse fixture staged at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on March 29.
