Ghana midfielder Muntari red-carded in Italian derby clash as AC Milan lose

Posted On Sunday, 22nd December 2013
Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari was sent off as his AC Milan team were defeated 1-0 by arch rivals Inter in the Italian top-flight derby on Sunday.

This is the second time Muntari has been sent off in a Milan derby match

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari was sent off as his AC Milan team were defeated 1-0 by arch rivals Inter in the Italian top-flight derby on Sunday.

A brilliant back-heel finish from Rodrigo Palacio with five minutes left gave Inter the victory over Milan on Sunday.

The Argentinian’s 10th goal of the season, which came when he met a cross from the right with a delicate touch that left the Milan keeper, Christian Abbiati, standing, lifted Inter to fifth place on 31 points.

Milan have won only one league game in two months and are languishing in 13th place on 19 points, only five above the relegation zone, after a poor performance in which Muntari was sent off in stoppage-time following a late scuffle.

In stoppages it erupted into a touchline brawl when Muntari shoulder-charged Kuzmanovic for time-wasting, as he wouldn’t give back the ball. The Ghanaian was shown a red card.

The defeat could have been worse had Inter been given a penalty five minutes before the break when Palacio was brought down by Cristian Zapata but struggling Milan still ended 2013 in miserable fashion.

    Muntari played well, except for his needless red card!

  2. Kofi(Atlanta) says:

    I agree with you, Yaw. He was fantastic but for the Card. I still think the card was a little bit harsh.

  3. milky says:

    Why do this athletes do this stupid things? Its so stupid when this professional athletes do this. I guess they are paid for their soccer skills not their mental abilities.

  4. Eben says:

    I think it’s high time Muntari realized that enough is enough.

  5. Tete says:

    Muntari has to exercise a little patience cos in football u’ll be annoyed when u are losing

  6. Ebenezer Acquah says:

    Muntari played very well but then, he must realise that he isn’t getting any younger. The Youth are watching his style of play and everything and therefore his attitudes most of the times are uncalled for. Perhaps, he wasn’t the only player on the pitch to act for that RED CARD. We still love you Sulley but let’s be proud of you. Unnecessary Red Cards- forbid!!!

  7. Kofi(Atlanta) says:

    Eben, you people always crucify Muntari for no other reason. Fine, criticize him, but to say enough is enough what does it mean. Did you watch the match? He was the best for Milan and they were behind with a minute to go and this idiot doesn’t want to give the ball back. Muntari went there for the ball and unfortunately bumped the guy who fell like falling from a cliff.
    It’s not good for him but to say enough is enough is overboard. This is probably his first Red for this year.
