Former Chairman of the Ghana Football Association Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe says there is no need to question the sincerity of the letters written by four Black Stars players Kevin-Prince Boateng, Sulley Muntari, Andre and his younger brother Jordan.
Kevin officially announced his return to international football after a two-year self-imposed exile.
Likewise, the Ayew brothers also wrote to the Ghana FA to confirm their availability after taking temporary breaks from the team in February.
Muntari had to apologize to Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah and his coaching staff for his unruly behaviour in the dressing room after Ghana beat Lesotho 2-0 in a world cup qualifier.
There are doubts about the actions of the players but Dr Nyaho Tamakloe, a disciplinarian says the written communication from the quartet should end the matter.
"These boys have decided to come back and I think we have to receive them with open arms and should not create the situation as if we have doubts about them, I believe that will do the trick," said Dr Tamakloe in an exclusive interview with Joy sports.
"We should allow them to enter in the field of the Stars and see how best they can help.
"They have written letters individually, so that tells you that they themselves are ready to join the team so I don’t think there is the need for us to talk to them for longer.
“They are young guys but responsible as well so if they have written to the Ghana FA that they want to come back then I think we should just let sleeping dog lie and just leave them so they can focus on the task ahead and there won’t be any problem.”
