Former Inter Milan player Sulely Muntari has refused to publicly speak about a reported proximity to joining Accra Hearts of Oak but the UEFA Champions League winner has confirmed talks with a South African-based agent.
“I spoke to an agent. He gave me a call. I have forgotten his name. Sipho…I don’t know how to pronounce his name,” Muntari told Marawa Sports Worldwide on Metro FM.
Local media reports had linked the powerful left-footed midfielder to the Phobians after training with the 2000 CAF Champions League winners on couple of occasions but nothing no serious talks have been held between the two parties.
Muntari – who will be 36 in August – has been without a club since leaving Albacete in July last year.
The former Liberty Professional man has a rich track record having played for nine different clubs abroad after joining Udinese U19 from the Liberty U19 in September 2001 as a teenager.
He won the FA Cup with Portsmouth in 2008 before Inter Milan came for his signature and what followed were eight trophies won including the 2010 UEFA Champions League under manager Jose Mourinho.
