Samuel Boadu has heaped praises on Hearts of Oak midfield marshal, Sulley Ali Muntari following his exploits in their 2-1 victory over Ashanti Gold in the Ghana Premier league on Sunday, saying the league needs more of the midfielder’s quality to come close to perfection.
After sitting out the game against Aduana Stars at Dormaa last week for medical reasons, Muntari made a return to action for Accra Hearts of Oak on Sunday, helping his team to a 2-1 win over Ashgold, thanks to two goals from Daniel Afriyie Barnieh. The former Inter Milan, AC Milan and Sunderland star was a delight to watch in the game, producing some masterclass in his play which deservedly earned him the Man of the Match award despite Afriyie’s double strikes.
Muntari was involved in the Hearts of Oak’s second goal which eventually won the day for them, when he shove off stiff challenge to get the ball to substitute Kofi Kordzi, who located Barnieh at the edge of the opponents box before he blasted it to the left side of the top corner for the match winner.
Coach Samuel Boadu had no hesitation at all when asked about the performance of the Black Stars midfielder, singing praises of the quality Muntari has brought not only to Accra Hearts of Oak, but to the Ghana Premier League (GPL) at large.
“I keep saying if we have about ten Muntari in the Ghana premier League, I think the premier league will go far”, Boadu stated in an interview with StarTimes after the game on Sunday afternoon.
“The beauty of the game is coming, as you can see Muntari on the field of play, he is doing well, he is playing well, he is very discipline tactically and everything you tell him he does it at the right time”, he acknowledged.
