Accra Hearts of Oak Chief Executive Officer, Mark Noonan, has praised former Uefa Champions League winner Sulley Muntari’s professionalism as he continues to train with the Ghanaian giants.
The midfielder, who is currently unattached after completing his loan deal with Deportivo La Coruna last season, has been training with the Phobians since July 11 to keep himself in shape ahead of a possible move in the summer transfer window.
“I think Sulley’s decision to train with us is awesome. It is a credit to the quality of the Hearts brand for the fact that we have kept training in this environment [despite football being at a standstill in this country],” Noonan told phobians.com
“The reports I have gathered from training concerning Sulley’s positive attitude and professionalism has been amazing. Sulley is not only a quintessential professional but a man who has never forgotten where he came from.
“Sulley’s presence will not only inspire our young players to dream big dreams, but it has also shown our players what it means to be a professional.”
The 33-year-old was reported to have tipped both players and technical staff of the Phobians a $100 each after their training session on Monday.
Sulley Muntari featured for Liberty Professionals before leaving Ghana for his illustrious European club career at Udinese, Portsmouth, Inter Milan, Sunderland, AC Milan, Pescara and recently Deportivo La Coruna. He also spent some time at Saudi Arabia’s Ittihad.
