Hearts of Oak legend Mohammed Polo has urged Sulley Muntari to sign for Ghana Premier League holders Asante Kotoko.
Sulley Muntari joined Hearts of Oak on a 6-month deal in January. The 37-year old was fantastic for the club throughout his time, scoring a goal and providing 3 assists from 14 appearances.
He helped the club retain the MTN FA Cup and as well win the President Cup by beating bitterest rivals Asante Kotoko 2-1.
Following the expiration of his contract with the Phobians, Sulley Muntari was expected to extend his contact with the club. However that hasn’t materialized, with the experience midfielder reportedly turning down numerous offers from the club.
Per reports, Asante Kotoko have shown interest in Muntari but are yet to reach an agreement with him. Responding to the reports, Mohammed Polo has urged Muntari to sign for Kotoko.
According to Polo who came through the youth ranks of Hearts of Oak and played for the club in most parts of his career, he would have moved to Asante Kotoko if he was young like Sulley Muntari.
“I wish I was also young like Sulley, I would have made the decision to play for Kotoko, so that I can have a feel of what it is to play for a team like Kotoko to know how they do their things,” he told Akoma FM.
“If I was in my youthful days, I would have taken the same decision as Sulley. There’s nothing wrong with what Sulley wants to do. Players have been doing that all over the world,” he insisted.
“I later joined Olympics after playing for Hearts of Oak for 21 years even though Hearts wanted me to retire. Hearts didn’t play any farewell game for me after retiring.
“Honestly, I wish I was young again to play for Kotoko and experience how it feels because Hearts and Kotoko are the two greatest teams in Ghana,” he added.
Last night, reports went swirling that Asante Kotoko has reached a 2-year agreement with Muntari. However, those reports were quickly rebuffed by Spokesperson of the club, David Obeng Nyarko.
