However, Charles Taylor, who is a former Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak ace says the 37-year-old must concentrate on gaining full fitness at the club and not to think of returning to the Black Stars.
“Sulley Muntari is not a Black Stars material for the Nigeria clash. We need serious players!,” he told Accra based Angel FM.
“He should focus on Hearts of Oak so he gains fitness. He can be called when Ghana qualifies for the World Cup,” he added.
Ghana will host the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast Stadium on March 25 before travelling to Abuja for the return game on March 29.
