Mr. Sulley Muntari has instructed our Studio to draft and disseminate this release in reference to the news that this morning appears on several online newspapers about the seizure of the car he led.
The fact, labeled as the effect of "major economic difficulties", is the consequence of a mere dislocation of the leasing company of the leasing company (contractual subject).
Mr Muntari, who did not know the disguise, is working to resolve it in the immediate aftermath.
In any case, Mr Muntari stressed that there were no difficulties in which he would be doing according to the version of the facts reported by the various newspapers.
Therefore, the editors interested in a timely correction or publication of this denial are invited.
Yours sincerely, Massimo D'Onofrio
