Sulley Muntari discloses why he joined Deportivo La Coruna

Ghanaian midfielder, Sulley Ali Muntari has disclosed why he joined Spanish top-flight side, Deportivo La Coruna.

The former AC Milan midfield dynamo joined the La Liga side last week on a four-month-deal.

And to Sulley, he joined Deportivo because of the club’s head coach Clearnace Seedorf whom he played with at AC Milan.

“I had offers, but I chose to come here because it’s a club that was in the Champions League,” he explained.

“They have the DNA of a big club, historic and with a winning mentality.

“It was easy to choose because also there is an old team-mate here.”

Muntari embarrassingly admitted that he didn’t know much about Juan Carlos Valeron, who is Deportivo’s best ever player.

“I don’t know him. Was he a good player?” he said when asked about wearing the number 21 shirt previously worn by club legend Juan Carlos Valeron.

“If he was a legend, then it will be a big responsibility.”

The 33-year-old hard tackler made his debut for Deportivo last Friday as they drew goalless at home against Espanyol.
