Sulley Muntari attacking an opponent during a match

The referee at the centre of a physical abuse by temperamental Ghana midfielder, Sulley Ali Muntari, has spoken about hoe the former AC Milan star attacked him.

Muntari is alleged to have once again shown anger beyond control in a friendly match involving Sulley Muntari XI vs Laryea Kingston XI at the Kotobabi Wembley in Accra.

According to Referee John Terry who was at the center of affairs, Sulley Muntari slapped him without thinking twice during the game that ended the match prematurely.

Below is the audio of the referee speaking in local language Twi which is translated below in English:

“There was a small infringement which I didn’t see earlier so I stopped the game and decided to replay it as fair-play in favour of Sulley’s side. . .

“Unfortunately he (Sulley) grabbed the ball with his two hands and I gave him a yellow card for that on the field of play . . .

“But he was not pleased and came straight to slap my face and I showed him a red card and he took the ball and played it out of the field of play.

I was surprised and the players around couldn’t do anything since all were similarly surprised too.

“When that happened, players of both sides talked to me not to retaliate and forget . . . Laryea Kingston spoke to me to let things go and at that moment I let go.”
