Sulley Muntari uses Asante Kotoko to set an enviable record in Ghana


The 37-year-old was in the thick of affairs when the Phobians pipped Asante Kotoko to lift the President Cup

Hearts of Oak midfielder Sulley Ali Muntari has set another record after helping the Phobians to defeat Asante 2-1 to win 2022 President’s Cup at the Accra Sports Stadium on Friday.

A goal each from Afriyie Barnieh and substitute Patrick Razak was enough to silence their rivals despite a late consolation goal from Samuel Boateng.

Muntari had a wonderful game as he had 38 touches against Kotoko. The former Inter and AC Milan midfielder also had 69.5% pass accuracy with four shots and three interceptions.

He also gave one key pass, won one tackle and also won three fouls.

As a result, Muntari has become the only Ghanaian player to have ever won Uefa Champions League, FA Cup in England, Serie A, Coppa Italia and Super Copa Italiana in Italy, as well as Fifa Club World Cup.

Muntari still has the opportunity to add other trophies to his cabinet as Hearts have been paired with Elmina Sharks in the round of 16 of FA Cup and could also stage a late challenge in Ghana Premier League despite currently trailing Kotoko by fourteen points.
