Suspended Black Stars player, Sulley Muntari has written to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) pleading for mercy over his act of misconduct at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The former Inter Milan and AC Milan winger was axed from the national team indefinitely after he attcked Black Stars management committee member Moses Armah Parker at the team’s hotel without provocation.
Muntari is reported to have slapped Mr Armah and threatened to stab him with a broken glass bottle before others intervened.
He was sacked from the camp following the attacks and has failed to show remorse for two years now.
However, in a letter to the GFA, the Saudi-based footballer said he has reflected on what happened and apologizes for it.
Below is Sulley Muntari’s letter of apology:
LETTER OF APOLOGY
I write to express my sincere apology to the Ghana Football Association and the entire nation for any embarrassment that my action in Brazil brought to the Black Stars Team, the Ghana Football Association and my beloved country Ghana.
I have reflected on what happened and I am deeply sorry and apologize to all the stakeholders in the GFA who were offended by my actions.
Ghana has a special place in my heart and I will forever be indebted to my country and all the fans who have supported me from the beginning.
I am always available to play for the Senior National Team of Ghana whenever I am invited.
