Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari was an unused substitute in AC Milan’s 2-2 draw at Palermo on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old has made a tremendous recovery from a serious knee injury sustained in the summer to make the Rossoneri team for the Serie-A game.
Muntari was however deemed not match fit to play a part in Milan’s fight back from two goals down.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side were two down by the 47th minute with goals from Fabrizio Miccoli and Franco Brienza.
However a Riccardo Montolivo goal in the 69th minute put the former champions well on their way to recovery which was achieved with a late Stephane El Shaarawy strike.
The draw now sees Milan who have had a woeful start to their Serie-A season rise to ninth ahead of the second batch of games to be played on Wednesday.
