Baby you should not have done that - Menaye

Sulley Muntari has racked up five yellow cards and one red since joining Portsmouth from Udinese for £7m in the summer.
But he gets a ticking off from his girlfriend, Menaye Donkor - a former Miss Ghana - every time he makes a late tackle on the pitch.
The Pompey midfielder, booked nine times and sent off three times in 16 games in Serie A last season, added: “She does not like it when I challenge too hard.
“I get angry when she tells me ‘Baby, you should not have done that’ — even when I have done nothing wrong.
“I’ve picked up too many cards but I am a winner and cannot change the way I play.”
MUNTARI has vowed to put a further dent in Liverpool’s title hopes today — to earn himself a move to Anfield.
Muntari is a £7million target for Kop boss Rafa Benitez. And the Ghanaian powerhouse admits he would relish the chance to turn out for one of the Premier League’s elite.
Muntari, 23, said: “It is my dream to play for one of the big four such as Liverpool.
“My heart is at Portsmouth at the moment but you never know what the future holds.
“When I played for Udinese I made my debut in the San Siro and I love showing what I can do in stadiums like that.
“I have never played at Anfield before and have only seen it on TV. It looks an amazing stadium and I am looking forward to showing what I can do on the big stage.
“I enjoy pitting my wits against the best players. That is why I enjoy playing football.
“Liverpool are a great side with fantastic players like Torres and Gerrard and we’ll have to play well to beat them.
“We’ve done well away from home and we are confident we can go there and win.”
Muntari fired in two long-range stunners in Pompey’s last away game — a 3-1 triumph at Aston Villa.
And he has warned Steven Gerrard and Co he will take no prisoners at Anfield — even if it earns him a rollicking from his girlfriend.
