The signing of Clarence Seedorf as new coach of Spanish Club, Deportivo La Coruna has given some life line to former Ghanaian international Sulley Ali Muntari.
Muntari is currently club-less after stints with Pescara which resulted in controversial racial issues which caught the international community’s attention.
The former Champions League winner with Inter Milan will bring his experience to bare in order to convince the technical staff and directors of the Canary club for a formal contract. Muntari will be given an opportunity to do so when he gets to train with the club.
The departure of Bruno Gama in the January transfer has left a slot in the squad set of Deportivo therefore giving the board the chance to fill in with a player who is probably out of contract.
The Galicians have settled on Sulley Muntari who is due to arrive in A Coruña tonight and will begin training under new coach Clarence Seedorf tomorrow on a trial basis. Deportivo will assess Muntari over the next few days and decide whether to go ahead with his signing.
Clarence Seedorf knows Muntari perfectly though the duo never had the chance to share the same dressing room. The Ghanaian came in from rival club Inter after Seedorf had departed AC Milan, but they got to be good friends as they were both in the same city playing for rival clubs.
The arrival of Muntari coincides, in addition, with the planning that the sporting one had, that rescinded the contract of Dark brown to have available a place in the group, indeed for a defensive midfielder.
The 33-year-old Ghanaian began his playing with Accra-based Liberty Professionals after featuring for his school OKESS but most of his career was spent in the Italian Serie A. He wore and defended Udinese’s shirt for six years and spent three years the two Milan giants; with Inter Milan where he won the UEFA Champions League and Serie A title before joining AC Milan and then signing a six-month loan deal with Pescara a year ago. He also enjoyed two years playing in England with Portsmouth and Sunderland and a year in Saudi Arabia with Ittihad FC.
