Muntari's father to meet Medeama president over son's assault case
By Patrick Akoto
The father of Sulley Muntari will meet with Medeama president Moses Armah this week to resolve the impasse between his son and the football administrator.
The AC Milan star attacked the respected Ghana FA Executive committee member in an unprovoked manner during a meeting at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The 29-year-old who acted as if he was ‘possessed’ charged on him in a brawl which resulted in the indefinite suspension of the player.
Muntari’s father, Alhaji Muniru Sulley, has already issued a public apology on behalf of his son but will move a step further to bridge the difference by holding a meeting with the respected football guru.
The Italy-based midfielder slapped the Black Stars Management Committee member during a meeting to calm the players over their appearance fees.
However, Muntari sprung from his seated to land some blows on the face of the Medeama Sporting Club owner before he was thrown out of the Ghana camp in disgrace.
Fans of Medeama have threatened to ‘deal’ with Muntari either physically or spiritually but the meeting this week will settle the matter between the two families.
This was not the only scandal to occur in the Ghanaian camp during the country’s shambolic appearance at the world stage.
The players had threatened not to board a flight to Brasilia to face Portugal in their crucial game until they received the $3.8 million they were owed.
The Ghanaian government had to send a plane with the money to them.
