Sulley Muntari is one of the nicest players – Lee Addy

Having been capped 30 times for the Black Stars, the former Red Star Belgrade centre-back played with several players, but has great respect for Muntari.

Contrary to reports that the former Portsmouth and Inter Milan midfielder has anger issues, Addy said Muntari is kind and was already willing to fight for others.

“Sulley Muntari said something I won’t forget. He mentioned that Kuffour was the one who fought for us, so now it’s his turn to fight for us.” Addy told Ernest Brew Smith in an interview, quoted by Ghanaweb.

“Sulley is one of the kindest people. He is always ready to stand up for us. The last time I met him, he asked me about my current business projects. He advised me to take a coaching course or start any business of my choice. “

Meanwhile, former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has categorically stated that Muntari did not slap anyone following the turmoil that rocked the Ghana team during the 2014 World Cup.

Ghana was eliminated from the tournament after failing to win in a group that included the United States, Germany and Portugal.

The Black Stars’ campaign in Brazil was also blighted by delayed bonus issues, with players even threatening a boycott ahead of the country’s final group match against Portugal.

There was also an episode in which midfielder Muntari clashed with a member of the FA after a fight. Muntari was reported to have exchanged blows with the said member of management, who was later revealed to be Medeama SC president Moses Armah Parker.

When asked about the incident, Gyan, Ghana’s captain during the 2014 World Cup, said that contrary to widespread reports, Muntari did not slap anyone.

“Sulley Muntari didn’t slap anyone. I was there and all I can say is that he didn’t slap anyone. I don’t want to go into details, but he didn’t slap anyone.” Gyan said on Onua TV last month.
