2014 Wold Cup: Ghana ace Muntari in top physical shape ahead of mundial

Published on: 28 May 2014
Sulley Muntari in top shape

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari says he’s in an excellent physical state ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

Muntari, 29, is guaranteed a place in the final 23-man squad after being named in a provisional 26-man squad.

The highly-rated midfielder has been a key pillar of the side for the more than a decade and will be required to bring his experience to bear on the team as he prepares to make his third successive appearance at the global piece.

The former Sunderland man endured some difficult spells on the sidelines due to injuries this season but says he’s physically and mentally fresh ahead of the tournament in Brazil.

“I got minor knock during the latter stages of the season but I’m feeling 100% fit for the tournament,” he said

“I’m feeling great and ready to die our country. We want to well in this tournament and I believe we’re all physically and mentally prepared.

“If we stay fit, the sky will be the limit for us. We’ll keep working hard to ensure we get to the top.”

The Africans have drawn USA, Germany and Portugal in group G.

    Now I believe the goalkeepers trainer when he said Kwarasey lacks confidence!! I went to the training today and wauw dauda is good. Dude is really good with penalties. On the hand Kwarasey lacks confidence big time!! Dude will get angry at any goal he concedes at training then starts cursing. He's putting unnecessary pressure om himself for nothing. I mean come on, this is just training. The other players were really impressed with dauda and they were all clapping for him and making jokes with him. I think Kwarasey should just have fun at training like dauda it's doing. Kwarasey even refused to take a pic with me after training. Why? Cause he's angry -_- but he came later to apologise and took a pic with me. One thing I noticed is, KPB didn't train with his teammates. While his teammates took the bicycle to training, KPB was in a car. Like Wtf who's is this and why is he playing the boss in camp? When he got to the training ground, he got in a conversation with AA and left with some German guys. He didn't train. After the training session, KPB showed up with this German guys at the hotel and walking like a boss. I don't who he thinks he is but **** him!! He was even shooting at fans, including me. Jordan did well at training today. He and his brother and Gyan were practicing free kicks watch out!!! Anybody wants the foto's? Leave your email behind and I will send them . Bless

    Muntari is a Ghanaian hero, a true Black Star, a real patriot and I hope some day the Ghana FA acknowledges his intangible contributions to the team. He was the tie that bound the team together when current captain Gyan had to take time off after the last Mundial. I than God and I thank Muntari for his faithful and quiet leadership qualities. Allah will bless you in Brazil for your commitment and dedication to Ghana and to the game that we all love so much. Help bring the lads together off and on the pitch. I believe with you, Gyan, Essien, KPB, (Stephen Appiah, technical team) as the elder statesmen with the team and future generation of Stars, Atsu, Waris, Dede, Wakaso, Agyeman Badu.... Wow I could name every single member on this team. to provide leadership and commitment. I think we will be all right in Brazil no matter what. Ghanaians are special. We know how to love and that is the key ingredient in team sports and besides most of the World and Brazil are now Ghana fans so we will be right at home. It will be like playing Accra or Kumasi. I urge the team to train hard, listen to the Coach and technical team, set aside all ego and work for team glory. Bring your best to help the team. if you disagree with the Coach, technical team and their tactics just swallow your pride and do your best for the team. Express yourself on the pitch. On the pitch you are the boss and you can let the ball dance, you can work your magic for the whole world to see. Remember this is not only about football. You are on a mission to bring the Ghanaian brand of peace to Brazil. There are demonstrations on the streets but every single one of you are ambassadors. You have been hand picked, you are the best of the best. You will play the beautiful game and bring peace to Brazil. You will make music with the soccer ball, you will play a symphony that will capture the heart of the poorest people of Brazil and calm them down. When you leave Brazil after the Mundial you will leave a legacy that will be remembered for all time. Visit the soccer museum in Brazil, be inspired to be immortalized in that museum. Love each other as brothers, respect and love your Coaches and technical staff, bring your best skills, courage to Brazil, do not compromise the good inside you and you will go all the way. I know it, I believe it. "Yes you can" OBAMA says so and he proved it on the ground. You can do the same on the pitch. "Yes you can"!
