Former Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari admits that he can’t thank Jose Mourinho enough for giving him the opportunity to play for the Nerazzurri and experience the joy of winning a treble.

Muntari was quoted as saying FcInterNews.it: ”I owe so much to Jose Mourinho.
”He gave me the chance to play for a big club at Inter and we won the treble in 2010.
”I will thank him for my lifetime.”
