2014 World Cup: Ghana midfielder Sulley Munatri fraternizes with poor community in Maceio
Ghana midfielder Sulley Munatri spent time with the inhabitants of the poor community close to the Estadio Rei Pele in Maceio before their final training session on Thursday.
The AC Milan ace was granted permission by head coach Kwesi Appiah to fulfill his desire of fraternizing with the under privileged.
Muntari walked in the community by signing autographs and taking photos with many residents.
He brought smiles on the faces of the occupants especially the children who were delighted to be close to a prominent player.
When questioned about why he decided to visit the community, Muntari replied: “This community reminds me too much.”
Muntari is not new to such humanitarian gestures as he donated to the Muslim community in Ngouni to buy PA system for the mosque during the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
He is expected to start for Ghana against Germany in Fortaleza on Saturday night.
