The 34-year-old has made just two appearances since joining Spanish second-tier Albacete on loan in January.

“I had a call from Sulley Muntari and the way he was talking with passion I couldn’t believe it,” Amoah said on Metro TV.

“He said if coach Kwesi Appiah will only play him for 15 minutes, he will be grateful and accept it.”

“This is a player who was clubless but now playing regularly but I think the final decision is in the hands of the coach,” he added.

Muntari, a one-time favourite of Ghanaians. has not featured for the national team since 2014 when he was sacked from the Black Stars camp during the Fifa World Cup in Brazil for indiscipline.

He has been capped 84 times by Ghana and scored 20 goals.

Ghana will play in Group F of the Afcon alongside Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.
