Hearts ready to sign Sulley Muntari - Nyaho
Former Board Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak, Dr Nyaho Nyaho Tamakloe says the Ghana Premier League club is willing and able to sign Ghana International Sulley Muntari should the opportunity arise.
Muntari has been training with the former CAF Champions League winners as he awaits a deal in the transfer window.
The player who is unattached at the moment is said to have immense love for Hearts of Oak, and will not rule out playing for the Rainbow club if need be.
Muntari featured for the Phobians in a friendly encounter with Bechem United at the Legon Ajax Park earlier this week, helping Hearts to a 3-0 victory, thanks to a brace from Kojo Obeng and an impudent finish by Patrick Razak.
Dr Nyaho Tamakloe who was present to witness the game had huge praise for the former AC Milan and Inter Milan star and admitted it would be a dream for Muntari to sign for Hearts of Oak.
“At the moment he is not a Hearts of Oak player but there is no doubt that he had deep love for this club. He was telling me in the presence of Hearts CEO Mark Noonan that people like myself helped him to reach where he is today and he is ready to impact that knowledge into the young and upcoming players. If you watch Muntari playing you can see why he is a top player and professional. His distribution and movement on the pitch is great. If you understand him and you are patient with him, you will have a top player in your team.”
Asked if Hearst will be willing to sigh Muntari should the opportunity arise, Dr Tamakloe sharply said “We already have a jersey waiting for him,” he told Joy Sports.
Muntari is one of Ghana's most decorated players to ply his trade in Europe having won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010 and multiple domestic titles in Italy and England.
Muntari who has played in three World Cups with Ghana is without a club after his stay at Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna expired at end of last season
He has been capped 84 times by senior national team, scoring 20 goals.
