Sulley Muntari has sent a heartfelt apology to Moses Armah Parker, the owner of Medeama Sporting Club, who was the target of his infamous fury during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Muntari claims that he felt regretful right away following the event in the Black Stars hotel in Brazil and has been waiting for a chance to apologize to the former Black Stars Management Committee member.
Per the report of a Ghanaweb publication, the former AC Milan midfielder clarified that he had no personal animosity toward Mospaka but was compelled to act as a result of holding a lot of issues inside.
Muntari apologized to the businessman’s family specifically because he thought his actions would have upset them.
He revealed during a recent interview saying;
“I never had the chance to talk to him but I don’t think I had problems with him during the World cup. It was a pile of a lot of things that led to me bursting out. I’m someone who doesn’t talk and when I work, I work really hard.
He continued: “I don’t disrespect elders so it will take a lot of things for me to react unfortunately, he was sitting in front of me and things got really bad. Immediately it happened, and I felt really bad.
“I wasn’t thinking just about him but his daughter, his family, his wife, and all those things. It’s not right for someone to disrespect their father. I’ve looking for him to apologize to him for my behaviour at that time but I have not seen him yet.
“I will use this opportunity to apologize to him. I disgraced him and made people ridicule him. It was not intentional to do something like that.
Whenever I see him, I will find a way to apologize to him directly.
He is an elder and I’ve been looking for him for a long time. I’ve no bad feelings about him. It was not him but the situation,” he said.
Sulley Muntari went even further, revealing what triggered the explosion and outrage at the World Cup in Brazil.
Muntari, who refused to blame anyone, implied that the players were frustrated by the FA’s and government’s failure to keep the commitments they made to them.
He believes that the players would have been satisfied if the authorities had been upfront and honest with them rather than playing hide-and-seek with them.
“It’s like you keep on stabbing someone and not let the persons bleed. We sacrificed a lot and this is what we do for a living. I’m not saying you shouldn’t get paid but tell us that I’m not giving it to you today, I will give it to you next two days. Next two days, you give it to me but if I come and you say next three days, people are human,” — he told Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV.
