Ex-Ghana defender Sam Johnson says Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng must render an unqualified apology to Ghanaians before they are allowed to return to the national team.
The former Hearts of Oak defender added that allowing the controversial duo to return without the apology will damage the need for discipline in the squad in future.
Johnson says the Black Stars must forget about calling up the two players if they fail to write the letters of apology demanded by the Ghana FA before the two players return.
The two players were indefinitely suspended for their roles in incident that negatively affected the Black Stars at the 2014 World Cup.
Ghana coach Avram Grant has hinted of his desire to recall renegade players without stating that there would be conditions on their return.
Johnson fears that the return of the two players without an apology could lead to future occurrences of such incidents which could negatively affect the national team.
“I don’t want to judge the two players because we have not heard their side of the story,” the former Hearts of Oak players who played for the national team for more than ten years said.
“But whatever the situation is, they shouldn’t have done what they did in Brazil, especially Muntari.
“Whatever happened, they had no right to slap and insult people the way they did and I want the FA to stand its grounds to make sure that even if the coach talks to them and everything is rectified, they should follow it up with an official letter.
“If they fail to do so, then we might as well forget them and move on as a nation.”
Muntari was sacked from the team for physically attacking a management member of the Black Stars while Boateng was kicked out of the camp for verbal insults on coach Kwesi Appiah.
