“Let Muntari/Kevin Apologize First”-Sam Johnson Tells FA

Former Black Stars defender Sam Johnson, has advised the Ghana Football Association not to allow ‘bad boys’ Sulley Ali Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng back into the fold of the Black Stars until they make an official apology to the FA and to Ghanaians.

Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng have been suspended indefinitely by the Ghana Football Association for different acts of indiscipline showed during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Whereas Kevin is said to have insulted the then Ghana coach, James Kwesi Appiah, Muntari is also alleged to have slapped Black Stars Management Committee member, Moses Armah, also known as ‘Mospacka’.

During his unveiling, the new Black Stars head coach Avram Grant mentioned that his doors are open for the return of the suspended duo, though he was quick to add that he will first meet them personally to ascertain the way forward for the two players.

But this, according to Sam Johnson, should not be allowed to happen unless the two players make an official apology to the FA and the entire nation.

“I don’t want to judge the two players because we have not heard their side of the story. But whatever the situation is, they shouldn’t have done what they did in Brazil, especially Muntari”, Sam Johnson told sportscrusader.com.

“Whatever happened, they had no right to slap and insult people the way they did and I want the FA to stand its grounds to make sure that even if the coach talks to them and everything is rectified, they should follow it up with an official letter.”

“If they fail to do so, then we might as well forget them and move on as a nation.”
