Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has revealed the source of his inspiration is Sulley Muntari.
The 22-year-old has become the newest sensation in the Black Stars team ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
Wakaso impressed on his international debut where his goal saw Ghana beat Cape Verde 1-0 in a friendly match played in November.
The Espanyol midfielder who was likened to Muntari during the early stages of his career now reveals the AC Milan player is indeed his role model.
“I really love him (Sulley Muntari) because he is a great player,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“But I can never be Sulley Muntari even though when I was a kid they used to call me junior Sulley.
“I only have good things to say about him and I hope one day I achieve the level he is.”
Wakaso is one of the players likely to make the final Ghana squad for the Nations Cup in South Africa.
His versatility makes him a must have player both at club and national team level.
