Charles Taylor, a former Hearts of Oak and Kotoko player, has urged Black Stars coach Otto Addo not to invite Sulley Muntari to the vital World Cup play-off against Nigeria.
The Black Stars will face the Super Eagles in a two-leg match, with the winner of both games winning qualification to Qatar’s greatest soccer tournament.
Ghana will host Nigeria on March 25, 2022, with the rematch taking place at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on March 29, 2022.
Interim coach Otto Addo has yet to name his squad for the upcoming games against Nigeria.
However, speculations in the local media say that the coaching team, led by Otto Addo, is considering calling up the Phobian midfielder for the Nigeria match.
Taylor, who believes Muntari is ineligible, has asked Otto Addo not to invite him to the game against the Super Eagles.
“Muntari is not a Black Stars material,” he declared on Angel TV. The Nigeria group poses a threat to us, so I will advise the coach to invite individuals who can play the entire game. Muntari has been a member of the national team for several years, but his style does not fit the Black Stars at the present, he remarked on Angel TV.
“To be honest, he can’t play for the Black Stars right now, especially against Nigeria.” I’ll beg the coaches not to invite him since he’s not in good enough shape. People are talking about experience, but I believe that at some point in time, experience does not matter.”
“We’re not talking about players with a lot of experience; we’re talking about players who are doing well.” “It’s past time to stop talking about the experience since it doesn’t guarantee you a bank loan,” he remarked.
Sulley Muntari joined Hearts of Oak in February and has contributed one assist in four Ghana Premier League matches. He was also on fire when the Phobians won the President Cup by defeating Asante Kotoko.
