Agyemang-Badu triumphs over Muntari, Essien as Udinese compound AC Milan misery
Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu helped his Italian club Udinese to overcome giants AC Milan 1-0 with his compatriots Sulley Muntari and Michael Essien playing for the losing side on Saturday.
While Muntari was substituted in the second-half, Essien came on in the 57th minute but Udinese claimed the vital win over the disappointing AC Milan in the Italian Serie A game.
Badu came off the substitute bench five minutes from time to shore up Udinese’s midfield, helping them to record their ninth victory of the Serie A and a second win over Milan this season.
Milan went into the tie at the Stadio Fruili with revenge on their minds after Udinese kicked them out of the Coppa Italia competition and manager Clarence Seedorf named Muntari in his midfield but had to replace him in the 71st minute.
Essien took the place of Bisra in the 57th minute but could not pull a chestnut out of the blazing fire for a tattered Milan side.
For Muntari, it was a return to face his former club but things did not end in a desirable way.
This has given Badu the bragging rights over his compatriots who are struggling in the Serie A this season.
