Sulley Muntari is one of the most sincere player I have met – Derek Boateng

Former Ghana midfielder, Derek Boateng is full of praise for his former national teammate, Sulley Muntari, describing him as the sincerest player he has ever played with.

In an interview on Accra based Starr FM, the former midfielder who played for Spanish side Getafe eulogized Muntari for standing up against the move by the then Ghana Football Association’s hierarchy, to place local players in the economy class and foreign players in business class when coming for camping.

“Sulley Ali Muntari is the most sincere Black stars player I worked with, he always wanted the best for his colleagues.

“He resisted a move by Black Stars officials to place local players in the economy class and foreign players in business class,” he added.

Muntari, who played for Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan was sacked alongside teammate Kevin-Prince Boateng from the Black Star camp during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil for what officials then termed as gross insubordination.
