Liberty Professionals head coach George Lamptey has tipped Sulley Muniru to follow the footsteps of his elder brother Sulley Muntari abroad.
Lamptey, then in-charge of the youth team of the Ghana Premier League club, coached the offensive-cum-defensive midfielder for eight years.
He is convinced the CFR Cluj new recruit has what it takes for him to make a huge impact in the coming years.
“I am more than excited. This is something I’ve been wishing for in a long time,” Lamptey told Accra-based Joy FM.
“Sariki (Muniru) should have been there a long time ago but he had some minor injury issues.
“After his full recovery, we had no doubt he was going to make it this far.
“The boy has everything, you can use him as a holding midfielder, as an offensive midfielder, he is a double-footed player as well.
“He can jump very well, his game intelligence is very high. We have every belief that come what may, Muniru is going succeed at CFR Cluj.”
Muniru, 20, has joined Romanian champions on a three-and-a-half year contract after rejecting a move to Real Madrid’s youth team after impressing on trial.
His elder brother Muntari, a Ghana international, has played and excelled for Udinese, Portsmouth, Inter Milan and now AC Milan.
