Sulley Muntari In Injury Scare

sulley-muntariSulley Muntari has picked up a fresh injury while in action for AC Milan against Genoa in the Italian Serie A last Saturday.

The 28-year-old was replaced by Slovenian international Valter Birsa just few seconds into the second-half due to an injury he suffered in the first-half.

Details of the injury are still scanty as Milan doctors will conduct scan on today to assess the extent of the damage.

Muntari becomes the second Ghanaian player to suffer injury after Andre Ayew who has been ruled out for up to eight weeks.

*Michael Essien marked his season’s debut for Chelsea in the English Premier League after coming off the bench to play in their convincing 3-0 win over West Ham United on Saturday evening.

The 30-year-old replaced Eden Hazard with five minutes left at the Upton Park as the Blues brushed aside the Hammers to highlight their superiority over them.

Chelsea scored first through Frank Lampard from the spot, before Brazilian midfielder Oscar added the second in the 34th minute.

Lampard added the third minutes from time with a neat finish.

Essien had not appeared in a single league game for Jose Mourinho’s side though he had captained them twice to victory in the English League Cup.

But after impressing on international duty with Ghana and helping in their qualification to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Mourinho handed him his league debut.

Essien seems to have fallen out of favour at Chelsea since the start of the season but he looks set to win back his place in the team
