Former Black Stars midfielder Derick Boateng has emphatically stated that former Milan and Inter midfielder Sulley Ali Muntari was sabotaged by some of his colleagues during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Prior to Ghana’s final group game against Portugal at the aforementioned tournament, Sulley Muntari was expelled from camp and suspended indefinitely after he was involved in an altercation with a Black Stars management member.
Speaking on Starr FM in a program dubbed Untold Stories, the former Fulham midfielder stated that Muntari was let down but his own teammate and they should have come out to support him [Muntari] since he was always fighting for his colleagues in camp.
“I felt really bad when he was banned and sacked form the team’s camp because I could see that he was sabotaged by some of his own colleagues.”
“The Sulley Muntari that I know will on any day fight for the whole team so I think some of the players should have come out to support him when that unfortunate decision was taken against him,” Boateng told Starr Sports.
The duo represented Ghana at the 2006 World Cup in Germany and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
