AC Milan ace Sulley Muntari launches first attack on Ghana FA over World Cup shambles

the 29-year-old said.  Muntari who has been branded as a ‘black sheep’ together with KP Boateng during Ghana’s 2014 World Cup debacle however attempted to shelve a follow-up question asking if he didn’t feel loved at the national team but went on to speak of his love for Ghana and promised to make a statement on his ‘bitter’ World Cup experience at an appropriate time.  “[Ghana] is my country. I love my country; I can never exchange any place with my country but [you know] there are certain things that I want to say but I’ll say them at the exact time. For now, I don’t want to talk about it but my country is always going to be my country,” he stated.  Muntari who was recently handed a new contract by Milan says he is concentrating on having an improved season with the Rossoneri. Milan are currently on a pre-season tour in the United States.

Sulley Muntari implies the Ghana FA cannot be trusted

AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari has launched a disguised attack on the Ghana Football Association in his first statement since being booted out of the World Cup by implying that the federation cannot be trusted.

The Italy-based midfielder, who was speaking at the pre-season training camp of his club in New York on Thursday, suggested that he did not have ‘peace’ in the Black Stars camp in Brazil.

Muntari insinuated that their needs in the Black Stars camp were not met and did not feel loved during their participation in the World Cup in Brazil.

The midfielder was booted out of the Ghana camp for physically attacking Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah during a meeting with the players over the delayed arrival of their appearance fees at the World Cup in Brazil.

According to reports, the AC Milan star attacked the respected Ghana FA Executive committee member in an unprovoked manner during a meeting at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

When asked to compare his experiences in the Ghana World Cup camp to the AC Milan training, Muntari said: “Well, AC Milan family is totally different; you can trust AC Milan family.

“They give you exactly what you want so at any time you want to give whatever you have inside you. So it always feels good to be loved and be back where you have peace.”

This revelation by the player takes the rift into uncharted territory after previous moves by his family to smoke the peace pipe with Moses Armah over the attack.

Muntari’s father, Alhaji Muniru Sulley, has already issued a public apology on behalf of his son and promised will move a step further to bridge the difference by holding a meeting with the owner of Medeama Sporting Club in the Ghanaian top-flight.

This was not the only scandal to occur in the Ghanaian camp during the country’s shambolic appearance at the world stage as Kevin-Prince Boateng was also sent home for verbally insulting the coach Kwesi Appiah

The players had threatened not to board a flight to Brasilia to face Portugal in their crucial game until they received the $3.8 million they were owed following several failed promises of the arrival of the money.

The Ghanaian government had to send a plane with the money to them.

    As much as I agree with you over the flaws of the GFA, it’s still wrong to physically assault your fellow human being.
    Otherwise most Ghanaians will be slapping our leaders especially NDC politicians On daily basis.

  2. to risky says:

    Muntari should have slapped more than one official

  3. shine says:

    Thats right Sulley Muntari,your heart is always with a team that love you. A player cant fight with any commitee member without any reasons. Moses Parker did a stupid thing to provoke him. How can someone slapped another without anything? Noo never theres something Parker did wrongly and he must pay for it. Ghanaian primary Journalists are the causes of all wrong news that are raining in this country. GFA commitee should have sit down Muntari and Parker for envestigation to the matter but sacked those players shall never solved the problems. Thats why Nyantekyi must resign cause he knows nothing about football. We the fans want Moses Parker and Nyantekyi and coach to be sack forever.

    Keep your temper to yourself here in the U.S. They don’t worship nobody here, not even the President. You hit somebody here you’ll sit in a jail house for a long time. Remember this is not Africa.
