Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari has targeted a win over Juventus as the perfect boost for AC Milan’s pursuit of second place as he seeks to avenge the injustice of last season’s encounter.
The Rossoneri midfielder intends to banish the disappointment of last season’s ‘ghost goal’ with victory in Turin on Sunday as his side continue to chase Napoli.
The Ghanaian midfielder looked to have given the Rossoneri a 2-0 lead against the Old Lady when he seized on a rebound in the clash last February.
But despite the ball being some way over the line, the officials neglected to give a goal before the Bianconeri ultimately secured a 1-1 draw.
Although Muntari has played down the importance of the incident, he admits he he would relish a legitimate strike and a win against the champions.
“I’d certainly like to score against Juventus,” the 28-year-old said.
“I haven’t scored in the league this year, but against Juventus it would also be fine if one of my teammates hit the net. Most of all, it is important to win.”
“That memory [of the ‘ghost goal’] does not bother me.
“Some things are part of football. If something bothers you, it means you don’t want to go forward.
“Though that goal was legitimate, it was not essential. It’s true, we were ahead on the scoreboard, but Juventus was stronger and deserved the Scudetto last year too.”
