Ghana’s new coach Avram Grant has named his first Black Stars’ squad with an initial list of 31 players for January’s Africa Cup of Nations finals.
However there is no place for Sulley Muntari or Kevin-Prince Boateng, despite talk they maybe recalled after being sent home from the World Cup.
Both are suspended indefinitely for gross misconduct while in Brazil.
Muntari misses out despite having what Grant described as fruitful talks with the player.
Shortly after being appointed as Ghana coach Grant had said: “The door is open for everybody, but there are criteria.”
However AC Milan midfielder Muntari is yet to apologise for the physical altercation with a management committee member that triggered his indefinite suspension. Muntari’s AC Milan teammate Michael Essien is another player to miss out as does goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey.
Kwarasey, who was part of the World Cup squad, is looking to build a new career in Major League Soccer in the USA with Portland Timbers following his recent move from Norway.
