Muntari’s Slap In Brazil: ‘A Fight Broke Out And I Remember Begging Him To Stop But He Didn’t Listen’ – Nyantakyi

Former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, has described Sulley Muntari’s bodily assault of Moses Armah Parker throughout the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil as ‘unwarranted and needless.’

According to him, the previous Black Stars midfielder’s choice to assault the then-administration member of the senior national group embarrassed the group on the most important stage.

“Muntari and Kevin were not kicked out of camp for technical reasons; they were kicked out of camp on disciplinary grounds,” Nyantakyi said in a Joy Sports’ Prime Take interview.

“A fight broke out and I remember begging Sulley to stop, but he wouldn’t listen to me,” he recalled.

“The battle was uncalled for and the battle was unwarranted; it was pointless.

“The embarrassment that it brought to the whole team was just unbearable so that was the best decision to take at that time,” he said.

Nyantakyi, who led Ghana to three World Cups, revealed he has begged twice for Sulley to be taken to the 2010 Mundial in South Africa as a result of players generally have to be managed, however this one escalated.

“On many occasions, there have been times players have done certain things that we have forgiven them or overlooked them, but this was something we could not overlook,” he said.

Muntari not too long ago apologised to Parker for the embarrassment he induced him and his family eight years in the past.
