Ghana Premier League champions, Accra Hearts of Oak have signed ex-Black Stars player, Sulley Muntari for the rest of the season.
The 2010 UEFA Champions League winner has reportedly signed a one-year contract with the Phobians.
The former Inter Milan midfielder was present at the Accra Sports Stadium to observe Hearts’ game against King Faisal on Sunday.
Muntari, 37, has been without a club since his contract with the Spanish side, Albacete, ended in 2019.
The former Black Stars midfielder in his hay days featured like Inter Milan, AC Milan, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Udinese before joining Ittihad, Pescara, Deportivo La Coruna and Albacete in the later stages of his career.
Muntari has had an illustrious career, winning the Serie A twice in the 2008/2009 season, 2009/2010, also winning the Coppa Italia in 2010 and 2011.
He was a member of José Mourinho’s Inter Milan squad that won the UEFA Champions League in 2010 and the FIFA Club World Cup the same year.
Hearts of Oak Head Coach, Samuel Boadu, believes Sulley Muntari joining the team will help turn the fortunes of the club around.
“Sulley Muntari is a motivator, he is a good guy and I like the way he speaks to the players.
“If he joins the team, I think things will change”, Samuel Boadu stated after Hearts of Oak’s 1-0 win over title chasers, King Faisal.
The win against King Faisal sees Accra Hearts of Oak move up the league log to 5th place.
