Muntari to join Ghana's WC squad late

Published on: 18 May 2010

Ghana's World Cup-bound midfielder Sulley Muntari will be permitted to join his international team mates on a later date, according to the Ghana Football Association.

Muntari is part of the Inter Milan set-up that will face Bayern Munich in the final of the Uefa Champions League on Saturday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The 25-year-old will delay his arrival in the Ghana camp which begins its pre-tournament training  in Paris two days after the Champions League final.

The Ghana FA says they will not hesitate allow the player some respite before turning his focus on the World Cup.

"Why not, we are well aware of his engagements and so we will permit him to come late. He will be given some few days of after the final to rest before joining up with the squad in France," Ghana FA Vice-President Fred Pappoe told Ghanasoccernet.com.

    Its okay like that but i think should muntari not play a part in the final game then i do expect him to be in camp as early as possible. In actual fact, he's got little play time this season and i do not personally think he would be that tired to have been given days off. We wish the Stars the best of LUCK!!!!!

    Conservation; that is good. But I think it would have been helpful to stipulate how many days he is having off before joining the team.

    Muntari plz try as much as you can to get into the Inter Milan first time next season.You still have 2 yrs left to yr contract.You've been very poor this season since the arrival of Thiago Motta from Genoa,he is not far better than u or is it becuz he is a Brazillian and u are a Ghanaian?Common show them what you've got train hard to get into the first time next season.Big names don't play football you are also a world-class player u can kick Thiago Motta out of that position yes u can!

    i really dont know what went wrong with muntari at a time when he is supposed to be at the peak of his carrier.if my mind sets me right his indisciplin issues with the gfa coupled with his fasting issue with mourinho never help matters. we will keep praying for him though but he shouldn't repeat those ways again and this should serve as lesson to all our players.
