Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has been left out of AC Milan’s squad for this season’s Uefa Champions League.
The 28-year-old is currently nursing a serious knee injury he picked up while on vacation in his native country.
The ex Udinese man has thus paid the ultimate price for his injury as he has been dropped from the 28-man squad for Europe’s flagship competition.
Muntari will however get the opportunity to feature in the Champions League if he is able to recover and prove his fitness by January when amendments will be made to the squad.
The Rossoneri are hoping to better their quarter final finish achieved in last season’s competition where they were kicked out by Spanish giants Barcelona.
AC Milan squad for Champions League:
Goalkeepers: Christian Abiati, Marco Amelia, Gabriel and Davide Narduzzo (B list)
Defenders: Ignazio Abate, Francesco Acerbi, Luca Antonini, Daniele Bonera, Mattia De Sciglio, Djamel Mesbah, Philippe Mexes, Mario Yepes and Cristian Zapata.
Midfielders: Massimo Ambrosini, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Kevin Constant, Nigel De Jong, Urby Emmanuelson, Mathieu Flamini, Ricardo Montolivo, Antonio Nicerino and Andria Carmona (B list).
Strikers: Robinho Stephane El Shaarawy, Bojan Krkic, Giampaolo Pazzini, Alexandre Pato and Simone Andra Ganz (B list).
