Ghana international midfielder Sulley Muntari has shown his commitment to his club – AC Milan after he was sacked and suspended by the West Africans. 

The 29-year-old, along with Schalke 04 star Kevin-Prince Boateng, were thrown out of Ghana’s World Cup camp hours before kick-off against Portugal in the final Group G game of the 2014 World Cup in Brasilia.

Muntari was accused of attacking and slapping a Ghana team official in Ghana’s camp and hours after his dismissal, the former Inter Milan star turned his attention to AC Milan who have rewarded him with a new one-year-contract, saying he is happy to return to Milan.

“I am happy to be back . Forza Milan,” he tweeted hours after he was dismissed.

Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah has said he has not shut the door to the face of the two players.

Schalke midfielder Kevin Boateng posted a picture of himself and Muntari with a post: “Friends for life…..#dontbelievethehype @sulleymuntari.”

    sulley dont be distraught .some of us supports your stance.doing is better than cheap talk. we saw how you applied yourself on the pitch the passion of a true ghanaian, you showed us with your play that you support the cause 100%. the same cannot be said about the players who went out there and refuse to pass the ball to colleagues more experienced and who were in better position to score than themselves. please train well and may be curb your passion off field., all humans learn from experience or persih and i have no doubt you will too. At the opportune time am sure we will read your book. i will help with publishing even if you want. As for Ghana FA shame unto you. cocoaase adminstrators. God punish them.For too long bad ass ghana big man bully and try to intimidate young people.Welcome to 2014 for corrupted big man who cant behave himself. If they were real big mans they will stay in their own hotel at their own expense and be in touch regular or only when their presence was really needed. effoum big men my ass.

    i now understand sulley n kpb.
    Afriyie Ankrah was the main cause foe our downfall.
    AA must be blamed as well for fielding unqualified players like dauda.
    kwarasey will never play for ghana again.
    if i were to be him,i will never play under AA again.
    We need a competent coach.We had too many people as well as gfa officials in the stars camp.
    a white coach wouldnt have allowed all these ppl to come around the team.
    There was no seriousness in the blackstars training.
    Even italian coach prandelli resigned immediately after failing as well as the italian FA boss avete.
    can that be said of kwesi appiah n kwesi nyantakyi?
    tweeeeeeaaakaaiii

    Kelvin: There are a lot of issues revolving this team which Ghanaians dont know so they say what they feel like.
    They are all corrupt and they always want ti make money from us without working for it.
    I know i may not be called into the team again but im highly elated dat i belong to anti corrupt group in the team ( Sulley, Dede Ayew, Jordan Ayew ,Kwarasey, Kwadwo Asamoah, Essien n myself)
    It is very insane for John boye n Gyan to tell the Manager to drop Kwarasey for Dauda just 45min before the match, all because he cant speak the local language to command the central defence.
    Im very dissapointed in the manager and the entire staff. What is the use of so many GFA officials here.
    We are very sorry to Ghanaians for what happened but we were pissed, for they were using us as their “cash cow” to dube the nation.
    How can players dictate to the manager. So i asked, what is the role of the so-called technical bench?

    I told u guyz frm day 1 that k. Appiah is not a coach,he will continue to disgrace us this is just the bigening.To the so called GFA needed to march to the nearest military barracks where they will be searched and punished, these guys are soo corrupt and ready to do every thing to benefit on the expense of the players greedy,and money making GFA.To the sports minister, shame u are a disgasting and know that money is not everything and if u follow it what u get is disgrace.And to A.Gyan our captain love is the key uphold it and work with it opportunity come but once division breaks camp. I’m done.
