Muntari tipped for success in Mzansi


Ghana legend Sulley Muntari has been tipped to succeed in the DStv Premiership ahead of his expected move to Maritzburg United.

Muntari, 36, has enjoyed a distinguished career after nearly two decades in Europe since leaving his local club Liberty Professionals for Udinese in 2001.

With spells with Internazionale, AC Milan and in the Premier League, the 84-time capped Black Stars midfielder boasts a wealth of experience as he looks poised to take the next step of his career to South Africa.

Having initially suggested Kaizer Chiefs was his preferred next move, this website understands the Team of Choice has been the first club in Mzansi to launch a concrete offer.

And former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda, who had been training with Muntari at Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities over the past month, believes he still has plenty to offer.

"I have been training with Sulley and he is a guy who is still passionate about football," Dauda said, as per CitiSport.

"He has been following the South African league while he was in Italy. He has good knowledge of the game there, he is a big boy and I am convinced that he can make it there.

"Sulley loves the football they play there [in the DStv Premiership] so he won't have problems [settling in]."

Muntari won nine major titles during his time abroad, including the 2009/10 treble with Inter under Jose Mourinho.
