Former AC Milan and Inter Milan midfielder has hinted at his retirement from football.

Following the expiration of Muntari’s contract with the Phobians, he turned down numerous offers to renew his contract with the club. He also rejected an offer from rivals Asante Kotoko.

In an interview with Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV, Muntari divulged that he does not want to play football anymore.

“I don’t want to play football anymore. I only wanted to help the local league gain ground because the local league gave us a lot when we were playing. So I wanted to give back to the local league,” he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“It’s not that I’m retired or not retired but I just don’t want to play [football]. I’m tired but then with friends, I train with them. If I decide to play, it will be in the local league but it’s not my priority.”

Sulley Muntari in his career has played for Liberty Professionals, Udinese, Portsmouth, Inter Milan, Sunderland, AC Milan, Al-Ittihad Jeddah, Pescara, Deportivo La Coruña, Albacete and most recently Hearts of Oak.
