Sulley Muntari Vows To Help Sunderland Qualify For Europe


    Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has vowed to power Sunderland to qualify for Europe this season after joining the English side.
    Muntari moved from Inter Milan to join Sunderland on Saturday on loan until the end of the season. The moves ensures that there are three Ghanaians at the English side with Asamoah Gyan and John Mensah already at the club.
    Having played for Portsmouth before moving to Inter Milan, Muntari is delighted to be back in the English Premier League. He told the club’s official website: “I love the pace, and passion the fans have across the nation.
    “The people are passionate about the game and that makes it exciting. You see young kids at the stadiums watching the game. “The English game makes me relaxed and happy so I can bring my skills out.
    “I will just try to do my best to help Sunderland go further because they are doing well. I hope I can help the club go to Europe.” Muntari spoke to Ghana team-mates John Mensah and Asamoah Gyan before committing himself to the club, but was delighted with what he found when he arrived on Wearside.
    He said: “It feels great to be at Sunderland and to be back in English football. “I’m very happy and from what I have seen here, it’s going to be great.
    “I spoke to the head coach first and also Asamoah and John – they told me everything about the club.
    “It is not strange to me. Everything here is amazing. The facilities and atmosphere are excellent. I’m very pleased to be here.
    “Last season was good for me, winning some trophies with Inter. We made history – but now I’m here with Sunderland and doing well for the club is the uppermost thing in my mind.”
