Alhaji Sulley Muniru has made a public apology on behalf of his son, Sulley Muntari over his disappointing behaviour during the 2014 World Cup but the AC Milan star must do same before his expected return to the Black Stars.
The 30-year-old assaulted a high ranking Ghana FA official in what appears to be a lead reaction to the agitation over delayed payment of appearance fees to the Black Stars players.
Muntari physically assaulted Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah and also destroyed some of his belongings including smashing his lap top and mobile phones.
The ex Inter Milan man was hours later sacked from the Ghana camp in Brazil and has since been handed an indefinite ban from the team.
GHANAsoccernet.com has reported that the AC Milan star was preparing an official apology to be sent to the Ghana FA to pave a way for his return to the Black Stars.
But his father, Alhaji Muniru Sulley is already softening the grounds ahead of his son’s expected public apology.
“I speak on behalf of my son to apologize to everyone who in one way or the other have been offended by the actions of Sulley [Muntari],” Alhaji Muniru told Asempa FM.
“He is not a bad boy as many perceive but then first thing first.
“I apologize and it is just unfortunate that Moses [Armah] Packer has been a victim of this [his fury]. “I have told him [Muntari] to leave everything to God.”
Muntari will be considered for a return to the Black Stars only when he shows genuine remorse by an official apology.
He must also submit himself to the disciplinary code of the team and assure he will refrain from such poor behaviour in future.
The Black Stars have meanwhile missed the quality of the AC Milan star.
The Ghana team continues to struggle to return to its best form ahead of its expected participation at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations which it hopes to win.
