Ghanaian International Afriyie Acquah says he has not spoken to Black Stars coach CK Akunnor over a return to the team.
Afriyie Acquah who plays for Turkish club Yeni Malatyaspor has been missing in action for the Black Stars since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation.
He was not called up to the Black Stars team that played Mali and Qatar in friendlies recently.
Speaking on Max FM’s Sports Pack 1, the ‘midfield general’ said he is ever ready to return if giving a call-up.
“I always say the national team is not for one person, there are many Ghanaian players but this is not like club football, so a coach needs a group of people who will play together for a long time so they get to each other. I have no issues not been called but anytime I am called I will give my all like I do always. Since we returned from 2019 AFCON and changed coaches, the new coach has not called me on phone yet to discuss my return but I am still working hard so that anytime I am called I will honour the invitation”.
When asked if he merits a call up considering the caliber of players available currently in the team he said: “Of course, everyone watches football, I am doing well, anyone who knows me knows what I can do, ever since the season started I play week in week out”.
Afriyie Acquah has 36 caps for Ghana and has scored a single goal in return.
