Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan, has revealed that he misses duo Sulley Ali Muntari and Michael Essien and would love to see them back in the national team.

But, Gyan was quick to add that the return of the duo will depend on the head Coach Avram Grant.

Muntari was thrown out of Ghana’s camp at the 2014 FIFA World Cup for his violent behavior, where he allegedly attacked and punched a Ghana FA official.

Essien refused to warm-up before the Black Stars played Portugal in the final Group G match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

His conduct was referred to the Ghana Football Association Executive Committee for punishment and has since not been invited to the national team.

But speaking on Starr Chat with Bola Ray, Gyan said Essien and Muntari still have a lot to offer the national football team.

“Yes, I miss Sulley and Essien, they are Ghanaians and we do miss them. Of course I want to see them in the team but that will depend on the coach but we surely miss them,” Asamoah Gyan said on Accra based radio station, Starr 103.5 FM.
