AC Milan boss Fillipo Inzaghi has given a strong indication of his preference for Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari by handing him the captain's armband in their pre-season tournament against English giants Manchester City. 

The 29-year-old scrolled onto the pitch at the Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, leading the Milan side as they go seeking for their first pre-season win since arriving in the USA.

After sitting out of the four previous games played, Muntari was named in the Milan squad for the first and Inzaghi, who took charge after the departure of Clarence Seedorf, named him as his captain for the game.

In a strong squad that excluded Mario Balotelli and Michael Essien, Muntari is expected to marshal the Rossoneri midfield.

    displaying passion and showing your dedication to the cause is always a cherished attitude in professional team sports yet ghana wants a mr quiet AA regardless whether he is up to the job and nyantakyie and; so we reject and resent the outspoken or fiery character choosing instead yes sir massa yes sir massa peopley. AC Miln is a successful institution with turn over of over hundreds of millions of pounds every year. A captain is an important part in the way they operate so if they thought for one minute that sulley was a trouble maker i doubt it very much that they will make him the face of AC Milan on the playing field.Shame on all those whack man's who continue to pour insinuations and castigations on sulley and are even calling for denaturalising of sulley or ban from the national team. Do they know better than AC Milan?Nonsense the problem is with the management, conditioning, preparation, poor communication with players, poor tactics and inability to focus team on the task at hand. These no doubt the things that Sulley was not happy about and what ruined our world cup 2014 capaign.
