Muntari will apologise if he is wrong - Richard Kingson

Ghana goalkeeper Richard “Olele” Kingson says under-siege Black Stars midfielder Sulley Muntari will willingly apologise to Moses Armah and Ghanaians if he physically attacked a Ghana FA executive at the World Cup without any provocation.

The Turkey-based shot stopper, who played with the midfielder in the national team for several years, says the AC Milan player will issue a grovelling apology if he realises he has done the wrong thing.

Muntari was suspended indefinitely from the Black Stars last week just hours before Ghana's match against Portugal for physically attacking the Black Stars management committee during a meeting at the World Cup.

The AC Milan midfielder has been criticized in many quarters for actions and has been described as indisciplined for his actions during the Black Stars camp in Brazil.

But Kingson, who knows Muntari very well having played together with him, says the AC Milan midfielder will have no problems with coming out to apologise to the Medeama Sporting Club owner.

“Sulley will apologize if he is at fault,” Richard Kingson told a local radio station in Ghana.

“Sulley is a very nice guy. He is very cool guy. He is a discipline guy and he is humble. I have been with Sulley in the same camp for a long time. I have never had a quarrel with Sulley before.

“But Sulley is one who does not like to be cheated. He respects everyone. But if you confront him in the wrong way he will not take it easy with you.

“So I want Ghanaians to relax. I know if Sulley is at fault he will definitely come out to apologize. He will apologize to the man [Moses Parker] if he is at fault.

"But if he knows he is not at fault, he will never apologize. Because he does not like to be cheated. He does not like lies. He doesn’t like it when you lie to him”.

“This is not the first time we are saying something like this about Sulley. People have painted him black without hearing him out.

"It might be that he is at fault and could also be that he is not at fault. Let all wait for Sulley to come and tell us his side of the story.

“But for me, I definitely know that if Sulley knows he is at fault, he will say sorry. He will apologize to the entire nation only if he is at fault.”

The midfielder is expected to arrive in Ghana this week with friends saying he will visit Armah with him father to issue a personal apology and buy the items that he destroyed during his attack on the Ghana FA executive.

    Folks: Olele knows Muntari as I did Muntari! If Muntari is at fault, not only Muntari would apologize but his mom and dad would accompany him to go and apologize. In fact that's how we do things in the Zango (Zongo) quarters . Besides to err is human! For cheating, we all know that this mafia FA have been playing mind games with the playing body since time immemorial and it's about time it stops and stop now

    sulley not all of us condemn your actions but yes if that is what they want inoder for their bruised big man image to be restored then do so. Ghana was the nation that gave us kwame nkrumah, naa dede akaibi, okomfo anaokye, osei tutu and yaa asantewa who said if they take away all our men our women would lead the fight.It is a shame that overtime we sometimes forget what makes us ghana. respect is two ways. they showed you, those you care about and the rest of the team little respect but in the light of the day you still intend to give em back some respect. that is very admirable. But brother you and some have been with u17,u19,u24 and bs. you have served under redknapp, mourinhno and host of winning coaches. If anyone believes that you have nothing to say to help the system work better then they are not from ghana. in time please let us hear you, ollele and all. check out upcoming site the good luck with the rest of your career. you are the real bigman not the corrupted akoroase football adminstrators. God bless Ghana and damn the goathead and pepper soup adminstrators pulling us back all the time.,

    Ghanaian leaders and elders would want people to keep mute even if they are killing you. Sulley should have slapped Nyantakyi as well. Sulley should not apologise,even if he is at fault.Nyantakyi took his wife and children on a free holiday trip to Brazil at the expense of the tax payer .When people are cheated for a long time right and wrong is indifferent. I wish Essien Muntary ,KPB,Kwarasey also do a press conference to unveil the truth.

    Sulley is not wrong. He should not apologize. Let us stop this nonsense of being afraid to confront injustice of folly of these so called "big me". Sulley has to listen to his father and do what he says out of respect, but should make is point very clear. Armah, if he has any integrity, should also do the right thing by admitting his faults and render a national apology. His actions partly ruined the world cup for us.

    AA is just good on scouting and recruiting young and talented players and could probably be a trainer but he is not a coach .he lacks technical abilities and how to use the right players at the right time.i wish GFA should keep him as an assistance coach or a trainer not a head coach .And if Ghana needs a local coach,we all know what selas Tetteh can do moreover these current young players were the same player he used to win the under 20 wc in Egypt playing 10 against 11 with Brazil.GFA is corrupt K.Nyantakye should be fired with immediate effect.Thank u Sulley for your incredible performance during Gh & German game.u guys have showed the world how to score Germany.This cup could have being our had it not been this stupid tactics of our coach and this GFA corruption scandals .Arise and shine mother Ghana!
