Ex-Black Stars midfielder Sulley Muntari announces retirement from football



Former Ghana midfielder, Sulley Muntari has officially announced his retirement from the game at the age of 38.

Muntari, who has played for the Black Stars on 80 occasions and scored 20 goals, has been without a club since leaving Hearts of Oak in the Ghana Premier League in the summer.

He began his playing career at Liberty Professionals before moving on to the Serie A team Udinese where he spent five seasons.

The 2010 Champions League champion also spent time at Inter Milan, AC Milan, and English Premier League teams Portsmouth and Sunderland and a host of other clubs in his career spanning 20 years.

“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 to Sky Sports on Monday.

What the former Sunderland player will do after hanging up his boots is unknown. Muntari is now at the Black Stars’ camp in Qatar, where the 2022 World Cup is being played.
