I’m ready to work with Muntari – Boadu

Accra Hearts of Oak Head Coach, Samuel Boadu says he is ready to work with Ghana international Sulley Ali Muntari who he considers a great motivation to his squad.

“Sulley is a great player of immense quality and presence. His addition would bring an added motivation and boost to the team.”
Speaking to the media after guiding his side to a 1-0 win over King Faisal, Mr. Boadu in a direct question to whether he needs Muntari in his team, replied in the affirmative, saying “every team would like to have a matured player like Muntari to be a part of them because he can inspire the up-and-coming players.”

“Sulley is a motivator, a good guy who I respect so much. It will be a delight to train such a player,” Boadu said.

The Ghanaian international has been training with the defending Ghana Premier League champions; heightening speculations of his joining the team officially in the coming days.

“He has been training with the team and seeing how he jokes with the boys made me happy. I believe if he joins the team, things could change.”

This is not the first time the 2010 Champions League winner with Inter Milan has been linked with a move to the Rainbow club. In April 2020, he was heavily linked with a move to the club but that did not materialise.

Coach Boadu confirmed there is a desire from the midfielder to join the club; a move fans of the club are waiting to witness.

The former Inter and AC Milan player has been unattached since ending a six-month stint with Spanish second division outfit Albacete in 2019.

Muntari, a FIFA Club World Cup winner, two time Serie A winner, two time Coppa Italia and double Italian Super Cup winner during a four-year stay with Inter between 2008 and 2012, was seen in the company of Hearts captain Fatawu Mohammed during Sunday’s 1-0 win over King Faisal at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The 37-year-old has been capped 84 times for Ghana, with 20 goals to his credit.
