Sulley Muntari suffers serious knee Injury

Published on: 20 June 2012

Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has been ruled of action for the next six months after undergoing surgery on a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

Muntari picked up the injury on Monday evening in Accra when he was playing in a traditional exhibition match played by Europe-based stars when on holidays.

The 27-year-old landed awkwardly after going in for a tackle on his international team mate Christian Atsu.

He went under the knife on Wednesday at the La Madonnina clinic in Milan.

A Milan statement said: '' Muntari underwent surgery for the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

''The recovery time is around five to six months, excluding complications.''

This is a big blow to the player whose career swiftly improved after joining the Rossoneri in January from rivals Inter.

Muntari scored three goals in 13 Serie A appearances last season.

    What's really wrong with our players? They are either injured or retiring. Why are we so injury prone? A match that supposed to be fun, why Sulley took it so serious to be in this situation? This has left sour taste in the mouth of all Ghana football fans. Five to six months is too long, wishing you speeding and complete recovery.

    Agreed Spio... 95% of Ghana pros play nonsense games when they are on break - - you don't see Messi doing similar

    Sulley is 39 years old and must retire from active soccer before he embarrasses himself.some players who gave selfish fathers are using juju to destroy some players for their disabled kids.

    I can't even believe what I'm reading. Really? really Sulley? Muntari has ego issues and he didn't wanna be shown-off by Atsu so he probably tackled him hard and was trying to show him that he's senior and superior.. That's what you get.. It's very sad. Just when your career was about to take off again.. SMH.. I watched the Serie A because of you Muntari.. Its a damn shame..

    Muntari scored three goals in 13 Serie A appearances last season. iwish muntari a APEEDY RECOVERY. I DONT UNDERSTAND SOME OF THESE PRIMITIVE COACHES. WHEN I SAY MUNTARI NEEDS TO PLAYED AS A STRIKER, IGNORANT MONKEYS DISAGREE WITH ME. 1. MUNYARI IS A HIGHLY EXPEREINCED PLAYERS N GOAL POACHER 2. IF PLAYERS LIKE AYEW WHO SCORED 3 GOALS IN 15 GAMES AT MARSEILLE, ADIYIAH WHO IS A BENCH WARMER.,...CAN ALL PLAY AS STRIKERS FOR GH. WHY CANT MUNTARI? AFTERALL, MUNTARI IS AN ATTACKING MIDFIELDER AT AC MILAN. EVEN THO HE ISNT A STARTER AT HIS CLUB, HE MANAGED TO SCORE 3 GOALS IN 13 APPEARANCES. WHY PLAY THIS GUY IN MIDFIELD WITH GBSTARS? AKWASI, PLAY HIM UPFRONT ON THE RIGHT AS A STRIKER! THE DEFENDERS WOULDNT BE ABLE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO DEAL WITH HIS LEFT FOOT(ON THE RIGHT) AND HIS EXPERIENCE.

    This is not the time for who plays where issue. Our experienced player is seriously injured and it breaks our hearts. If Muntari is your blood-brother would you be worrying about Black stars position now? Please, sympathize with Sulley and pray for his speedy recovery. Thank you.

    This news is a heartbreaker but Muntari is a warrior and a true believer he will come out of this a better player. It is time to take those crazy tackles out of football. That injury could have been on Atsu and that would have been just as bad. Let us protect our National treasures, ban crazy tackles from soccer. Speedy recovery bro Sulley!

    TC,and his like minded people. I subject you to an eternal misery where you will bow down your head in shame and lick your wounds. Jealousy should eat you up, till the day you will come and confess before this great son of our land, who you wish were to be your brother to take you out of your poverty. I know you would have been the first person to come before him and bow for some koko money every morning. Fool.
