Medeama angrily rejects threat on Sulley Muntari's life ahead of Uganda clash

Published on: 04 September 2014
Moses Armah and Sulley Muntari clashed in Brazil

Ghanaian side Medeama have issued a strongly-worded statement to condemn a threat issued by one irate supporter Okodi on the life of suspended Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari.

Okodi, who is believed to be a staunch supporter of the Mauve and Yellows, issued the daring threat on Accra-based Happy FM on Wednesday morning.

He claimed angry fans of the club were bent on teaching the AC Milan star a lesson after he physically assaulted their club president Moses Armah during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

But the club has issued a statement to distance itself from the threat and says such barbaric attempt on the life of an individual will not be countenance.

“Our attention has been drawn to a publication on Ghana’s leading football website, that one Okodi has threatened to organize supporters to beat Sulley Muntari when he shows up in Kumasi for Ghana’s 2015 AFCON qualifier against Uganda on Saturday, club spokesman Tony Nkrumah Boateng told the club’s official website.

“We condemn in no uncertain any attempt to link the club to such a barbaric and  unguarded talk and want to distance ourselves from the purported threat.

"We find the comment as childish, unfortunate and ill-informed as the club does not endorse any form of threats that may lead to violence.

“Our club president Moses Armah is a highly-respected football administrator in Ghana and will not do anything to tarnish his hard won reputation.

“He’s had a cordial relationship with Muntari’s father since the incident happened and has therefore expressed shock on the threat on the life of Sulley Muntari.

“We firmly believe the appropriate authorities are making progress in resolving the unfortunate incident that occurred in Brazil, between our club president Moses Armah and Sulley Muntari.

Muntari has arrived in his native country to support the Black Stars despite his suspension from the national team.

    Cowards! Any one make attempt on muntari life should aswer to muntari supporters both Ghana and abroad; cowards!! Muntari is the one of the best player Ghana have ever produce. He speaks his mind and express himself in expense of stupid Black Star management during the world cup. They should as a society make room for people views and tha actually helps us to grow. They should call him back to black Star line-up with immediate effect. Stupid management: With their stupid ego

    Medeama president Moses Parker is giving himself a vast troubles if anything happened to Sulley Muntari Parker and his whole intired family shall be wipe by Muntari fans. We knew where Parker lives with his family and we knew where he works and where he stay at night. Let Okodi do whatever he want to do with Muntari and see if Okodi will live for three days. If anything happened to Muntari we will kill Kwesi Appiah and Nyantekyi instantly and together with Parker.

    @shine, you are really sick in the head. Anyways, I hope these individuals know that muntari have a huge fan base in Kumasi. It will be suicidal for anybody to threaten muntari's life in Kumasi. Muntari is a national treasure, he might not be as discipline as we want but he is still the most dedicated player on our team and we appreciate him

    Muntari behavior must be condemned in all circles. He is not the best player Ghana has ever had. He needs to apologies to settle this issue once and for all.

    In Ghana, any kwasibiara can stand up and make noise! Just shut up and go to Kumasi, baba yara staduim precisely the ASOKWA END OR ZONGO and carry out your threat and let see! U ll come to Accra with a lot of missing teeth and a face like a beaten armed robber! Empty barrels make the most noise and I dare him to go to baba yara and carry out his threats!! Moses armah is a respected football administrtaor? Really? A respected football administrator will not stooped so low to exchange blows with a footballer in an international event like the WC! A respected football administrator, will not be following the national team everywhere,all in the name of been an exc. of the fa, chilling and taking per diems! If he has conscious, he should have APOLOGIZE TO GHANAIANS immediately after the WC but he hasn't and this is a clear indication that, he is no gentleman!! As much as i want sulley to apologize, I want THIS PARKER MAN to apologies to Ghanaians first and foremost for bringing disgrace to us by his violent and recalcitrant behavior! His behavior was THUGGISH and doesn't befit his so called millionaire status!

    I don't understand why people are calling for muntari to aplogise to Parker without sounding the same advice to parker to apologize to Ghanaians for his crass thuggish behavior in Brazil! Ghanaians are simply sycophants and hypocrites because, this parker man brought disgrace to us in Brazil and besides, he went to Brazil at the expense of tax payers monies but he didn't performed any functions for us over there but to cause confusion and commotion! According to reports, after the fight with sulley, he was relocated to a different hotel and the question is this, WHO PAY FOR THE HOTEL BILLS? That hotel bills was borne out of tax payers monies on this recalcitrant thug! Can't believe we wastes so much tax payers monies on irrelevant people like armah for nothing! This is a serious waste of tax payers monies by this born crook and his cabals but we want sulley to apologize to him for what? Am 100% sure that, his laptop,cameras etc that was allegedly destroyed by muntari will be paid for by tax payers monies again! He took his per diems, was relocated to a new hotel etc all on Ghanian tax payers account n GHANA IS THE LOSER HERE! GOD SHOULD HAVE MERCY ON POOR GHANAIANS TAX PAYER'S! By the way, has the useless presidential commission invited this thug man to answer questions on his role in the disgraceful Brazilian fiasco? These are the criminal guys the commission needs to summon and answer questions and not innocent journalists!! If the commission wants us to believe that, is not another useless presidential commission just like the previous ones, they should invite Parker to appear before them and drill him seriously! The day this fella apologize to Ghanaians for his thuggish behavior in Brazil to Ghanaians, sulley ll follow suit!

    Fool this has nothing to do with AA and Nyantakyi. No wonder why posters are on your case here. We all support Muntari but would not behave the way you are behaving. Village boy
