Former team manager of the Black Stars, Opoku Afriyie has insisted that he will not be surprised to see Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari in Kwesi Appiah's final squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
The pair have been out of the national team after they were sacked from the camp of the Black Stars during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Boateng and Muntari were accused of using vulgar words for Kwesi Appiah and the management members of the Black Stars.
However, the Normalisation Committee chairman, Dr Kofi Amoah had made comments about their inclusion into the Black Stars squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Egypt.
But according to the Opoku Afriyie, the two players had insulted the management members of the Black Stars and not the coach as reported earlier and he will not be surprised if Kwesi Appiah includes them in his squad for the AFCON.
"I will not be surprised if Sulley Ali Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng make into the Black Stars Afcon squad because coach Kwesi Appiah used to talk to them on phone since that incident in 2014.
"I can confidently say that the two players never insulted the coach, it was rather Black Stars management and the two players did that because the management failed to fulfil their promises, he told Light FM.
