Sulley Muntari marries ex-beauty queen Menaye

Published on: 26 December 2010

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari married his long term girl friend Menaye Donkor in Dzorwulu, Accra on Christmas Day in a low-key ceremony.

Menaye, looking resplendent, wore a dress that would appeal to Muntari's religion, a silky Indian robe and hijab (Islamic headscarf).

And Muntari's choice of outfit was an all white Pakistani outfit.

The couple tied the knot in an Islamic wedding ceremony which was restricted to close friends and family relations.

This completes a quintuple for the player who has won the Italian Serie A, Coppa Italia, Uefa Champions League and Fifa Club World Cup trophies this year.

Muntari and Menaye have been dating for four years, after the Inter Milan player met her at a lobby of a hotel during the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany.

The player’s love for Menaye nearly landed him into trouble in 2009 during a World Cup qualifier when his lover clashed with a police officer.

The Inter Milan ace spewed by saying he would quit the national team if the police officer did not apologize to her.

Menaye was crowned Miss Universe Ghana in 2004.

We at wish Sulley and Menaye a blessed union.

    goodluck sulley and i pray for a long beautiful future for you two and **** all those clueless people who dismisses your choice of marriage. who cares if she is a christian, isnt she a ghanaian and a human being just like sulley. maybe idiots like you fools need to change your own perspective on life and maybe you will find such a beautiful bride like her. evy and jealousy will burn you all alive. anyways congrats to sulley,this marriage i think will help his career in many ways. essien and company should learn and follow

    Seidu you are an idiot!. A Muslim is allowed to marry a Christian if you do not know, learn that today from. Christians believe in the same God you believe in and for that reason, Muntari is allowed to marry Menaye

    Sulley Congrats, if u die stay in your cofin in your grave. Thank you so that we too would have some. but hey advise your friends too to settle down cus atleast it would keeep some over ambitious gals like Obaa Yaa to get off your back, and atleast if even they want to sqweez their way through it would be for some money from you but not commitment and marrieage. If Dela knew Kwabena was married she wouldn't have gone that length to court

    Sulley has to be beaten 100 sticks on his ass and before that, his wife has to convert first then, they all will have the blessing of Allah. otherwise, Mr. Muntari Sulleyman is going to be asked in front of almighty Allah about everything he has done and how he handled his children as well as his wife.
