Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has lauded Sulley Muntari’s leadership qualities after Friday’s 7-0 mammoth win over Lesotho in a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
Muntari, in the absence of John Mensah, skippered a newly-look Black Stars who began their quest for a third successive World Cup finals appearance in devastating fashion.
The 27-year-old led by example by scoring the opener and also set up Adiyiah’s brace before being replaced by debutant Christian Atsu.
Agyemang-Badu-who plays for Italian Serie A outfit Udinese-described the AC Milan enforcer as a fantastic player.
“He is a fantastic player and he also exhibited good leadership qualities in the game,” Agyemang-Badu told MTNFootball.com
“I’m proud to play with him. He gave us support and encouragement through the game.”
Ghana’s squad will fly out to South Africa on Saturday to continue preparations for the June 9 showdown with Zambia in Lusaka.
