Happy Rossoneri: Muntari vows to fight for Milan place

Sulley Ali Muntari has vowed to regain his starting place at AC Milan following a bad spell which culminated in a disastrous game against Juventus after which he was sidelined by Rossoneri coach, Filipo Inzaghi for last week’s 1-1 draw against Empoli.

The Ghanaian was not even named in the Milan squad following his string of errors when captaining Milan to the comprehensive 1-3 loss at the Juventus Stadium on February 7, prompting reports that his career with the 7-time European champions may be heading to the back door.

Muntari returns to the 23-man Milan squad for this afternoon’s Serie A match day 24 tie against Cesena at the San Siro even though he is expected to only start from the bench but the midfield strongman says he is enjoying life with the Italian giants and will work harder to get back into the side.

“I’m happy in  Milan and I will stay here for another season,” Sulley Muntari responded to questions about his future.

“Being in the team’s official line-up is my first aim for now and I will do my best to recuperate my performance and to convince my coach that I deserve a permanent place in the team,” the Ghanaian player added.

30 year old Muntari joined Milan from crosstown rivals, Inter on loan in January 2012 before making the move permanent on a free transfer six months later and has been a regular for the Rossoneri since, making a total of 69 appearances (55 starts) scoring 11 goals including 15 appearances (11 starts) and two goals this season.

Milan have struggled for form in Serie A since the turn of the year, the 3-1 victory over rock bottom Parma on February 1 being their only victory in 7 league games in 2015, a span that includes 4 defeats.

Ahead of today’s round of matches, the 18 times Italian champions have amassed a paltry 30 points from 23 league games this term and sit outside the top 10, a massive 27 points behind leaders, Juventus who have nevertheless played a game more. Follow @thedonplato
