Muntari makes return to training

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has returned to training with Italian side Inter Milan after two weeks out with injury.

The 23-year-old trained with his team-mates for the first time on Tuesday evening following the injury he suffered last month.

His return is a massive boost for coach Jose Mourinho who has spoken openly about the negative effects of Muntari's absence on his side.

The Ghanaian was carried off on a stretcher in the 53rd minute of their clash with Genoa in the Serie A with a thigh muscle problem.

He spent the two weeks with his doctors who gave him the clearance to return to training.

Muntari's return is also a further boost for the Black Stars who take on Tunisia on 19 November.

Two other key Ghana players - John Mensah and Asamoah Gyan- returned to training on Monday after suffering similar injury setbacks.
