AC Milan ace Sulley Muntari launches first attack on Ghana FA over World Cup shambles
The Italy-based midfielder, who was speaking at the pre-season training camp of his club in New York on Thursday, suggested that he did not have ‘peace’ in the Black Stars camp in Brazil.
Muntari insinuated that their needs in the Black Stars camp were not met and did not feel loved during their participation in the World Cup in Brazil.
The midfielder was booted out of the Ghana camp for physically attacking Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah during a meeting with the players over the delayed arrival of their appearance fees at the World Cup in Brazil.
According to reports, 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.
When asked to compare his experiences in the Ghana World Cup camp to the AC Milan training, Muntari said: “Well, AC Milan family is totally different; you can trust AC Milan family.
“They give you exactly what you want so at any time you want to give whatever you have inside you. So it always feels good to be loved and be back where you have peace.”
This revelation by the player takes the rift into uncharted territory after previous moves by his family to smoke the peace pipe with Moses Armah over the attack.
Muntari’s father, Alhaji Muniru Sulley, has already issued a public apology on behalf of his son and promised will move a step further to bridge the difference by holding a meeting with the owner of Medeama Sporting Club in the Ghanaian top-flight.
This was not the only scandal to occur in the Ghanaian camp during the country’s shambolic appearance at the world stage as Kevin-Prince Boateng was also sent home for verbally insulting the coach Kwesi Appiah
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 following several failed promises of the arrival of the money.
The Ghanaian government had to send a plane with the money to them.
