Sulley Muntari shortlisted among 20 ugliest footballers in the world

Ghana midfielder, Suleyman "Sulley" Ali Muntari is known to have one of the prettiest and respected wives in the football world.

Reports sometime ago suggested the wife of Sulley Muntari is so pretty that former Italian Prime Minister and owner of AC Milan, Silvio Berlusconi had to 'beg' to meet her during the midfielder's period with the club.

According to Berlusconi, he had wanted to meet Muntari's wife, Menaye Donkor because everyone kept saying she was the prettiest of the wives of the club's players at that time.

However, the ‘quick-tempered’ midfielder seems not to fall anywhere near handsome and a football-focused website, has gone ahead to name him as one of the 20 ugliest footballers around.

In a list comprising well-known superstars like Franck Ribery, Angel Di Maria, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez, Muntari appears as the third on the list.
