In 2001, Coach Emmanuel Afranie(RIP) shocked many football fans when he decided to leave out star names like Stephen Tetteh, Don Bortey, Stephen Oduro, Ishmael Addo and Charles Taylor from the World Youth Games. In their absence, new stars emerged and Sulley Muntari was one of those. With other budding talents like Michael Essien, Razak Pimpong, Razak Ibrahim and John Paintsil, the Ghana team placed second in Argentina. 
Sule has gone to have a good career with his major highlight being the treble he won with Inter Milan in 2009/10. It was rumoured that he turned down a move to Asante Kotoko choosing Liberty Professionals where he had a short stint before moving to Udinese in the Serie A.

On Wednesday 25th July, Sule featured as Accra Hearts of Oak beat Bechem United 3-0 in a friendly game played at the University of Ghana Legon Ajax Park. Most definitely, this didn't go down with many a Kotoko fan bearing in mind the rumour from the past. 

Motivated by the ex-Internazionale and AC Milan midfielder, Kojo Obeng bagged a brace whilst Patrick Razak helped himself to a goal and a duo of assists as the Rainbow boys run triumphant. 

The guest player did 37minutes of action in the second period of the game watched by Hearts CEO, Mark D. Noonan, Board members Dr. Nyaho-Nyaho Tamakloe, Frank Nelson Nwokolo, and Alhaji Brimah Akanbi.

Sule Muntari, an FA Cup gold medalist with Portsmouth, spent last season at Deportivo de la Coruna. He joined the club after a trial.

Should Hearts of Oak fancy a move for the midfield stalwart? Board Member, Dr. Tamakloe after the game didn't hid his joy at having the player joining their training sessions. Muntari ,34, hasn't really enjoyed a good club spell after 2016. Spending 6 months each at Pescara and Deportivo.
