Following reports that Black Stars and Inter Milan player, Sulley Ali Muntari had directed a foul-mouthed tirade at Ghana’s coach Milovan Rajevac having only featured as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Australia, the footballer has issue his first official statement as follows:

“First of all I want to say that, I respect the coach’s decision totally, and as a member of the Ghana Black Stars, will serve mother Ghana and die a little to raise her flag high.”

“Whatever is going on in the media circles is untrue and I have the utmost respect for my teammates, coach, administrators and the entire team personnel.”

“We have a very important game ahead of us against Germany, which requires harmony and unity in order for us to advance to the next stage.”

“I will plead that you continue with your support, so that we stay focused on the task ahead.”

According to reports, Milovan Rajevac wanted Muntari to be sent home, but was persuaded by captain Stephen Appiah and the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwasi Nyantekyie, to keep the Champions League winner as part of the squad.
