Ex-Black Stars midfielder Sulley Muntari retires from football

Sulley Ali Muntari has announced his retirement after playing for about twenty years as a professional footballer.

Muntari who previously played for Ghana’s Hearts of Oak confirmed his retirement on Monday, November 28, 2022.

“I just did a few months with the local side [Hearts of Oak]. My son wanted me to play,  I didn’t play for almost three years, then my son decided to ask me to go and play. I did that, but now I’m done.” Muntari said in an interview.

The former midfielder in the Ghana Premiere League recently parted ways with Hearts of Oak after the club failed to reach an agreement with him for a contract extension.

Sulley joined the Hearts of Oaks this year and was part of the key players for the club in the FA Cup title and the President’s Cup.

The 38-year-old scored his first goal for the club in March in a penalty to change the draw to a 2-1 score against WAFA at the Accra Sports Stadium.

He started his career with Ghana Premier League side Liberty Professionals and has enjoyed a trophy-laden career in the last two decades.

He won the FA Cup with Portsmouth, Serie A with AC Milan, as well as the treble, including the UEFA Champions League with Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho.
