Sulley Muntari Retires From Football At Age 38

Former Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has announced his retirement from professional football at the age of 38.

After an illustrious career spanning almost two decades, the 2010 Champions League winner says it’s time to hang his boots after ending his time with the Ghana Premier League side Hearts of Oak.

Muntari claims he only returned to the game to fulfill his son’s desire to play for the club but that has now come to an end.

“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,” he told Sky Sports Monday, Nov. 28, 2022.

Muntari, who earned 80 caps for the Black Stars and scored 20 goals, has been without a club since leaving Ghana Premier League side, Hearts of Oak in the summer.

He began his career at local side, Liberty Professionals before joining Serie A club, Udinese where he played for five years.

The 2010 Champions league winner also had stints with AC Milan, Inter Milan and English Premier League sides, Portsmouth and Sunderland.

Muntari featured for Ghana between 2002 to 2014 and was key to the country’s qualification for the World Cup in Germany (2006), South Africa (2010) and Brazil (2014)

Muntari is currently in the camp of the Black Stars at the ongoing 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It is unclear what the former Sunderland man will do after hanging his boots.
