Former AC Milan, Inter Milan and Hearts of Oak midfielder Sulley Muntari has announced his retirement from football after 20 years.
The UEFA Champions League winner revealed on Tuesday that he has retired from professional football.
“I just did a few months with the local side [Hearts of Oak]. My son wanted me to play. I didn’t play for almost three years, then my son decided to ask me to go and play. I did that, but now I’m done.” Muntari said to Sky Sports on Monday.
Sulley Muntari started his career with Ghanaian side, Liberty Professionals before he moved to Serie A side Udinese in 2002.
The 38-year-old Ghanaian international won the UEFA Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup with Inter Milan in 2010.
Sulley Muntari played for nine different clubs outside Ghana before he returned home to join Hearts of Oak early this year on a six-month deal where he won the FA Cup and President’s Cup.
He also represented the Black Stars of Ghana at the national level. He made 84 appearances between 2002 and 2014, and scored 20 goals.
