Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association, George Afriyie has lambasted Sulley Muntari by describing the midfielder’s act as ‘animalistic’.
Sulley, was involved in a burst up with management committee member Moses Armah Parker during a meeting at the team’s camping base in Maceio [Brazil] over an unpaid bonus prior to Ghana’s final group game against Portugal.
The 28-year old has been suspended by the Ghana FA following a back and forth confrontation with the Medeama owner after he got incensed with a comment made by “Moseparker” which eventually led to the AC Milan star launching ‘an unprovoked physical attack on the Executive Committee member.
George Afriyie who is a member of the FA Executive committee and was present at the time of the incidence in an interview with Accra-based Asempa Fm portrayed Muntari’s act as “animalistic”.
“Muntari behaved like an animal. Yes, am using the word animal. Yes quote me. Am not afraid”, he said.
“I have never seen Muntari like that before in my life. I know him. There has been series of Muntari’s problem over the years in the Black Stars. But what I witnessed with my eyes was not an act of a human being. Yes am saying it”, he added.
“The facts that you have money or you are playing for AC Milan doesn’t mean you are above everybody. The man slapped “Moseparker” two times unprovoked. It is not as if Moses parker said something wrong. Am saying it because he is my colleague and tomorrow it could be me”.
Muntari is currently serving an indefinite suspension from the Ghana FA.
