Sulley Muntari is on the verge of joining the South African Professional League after instructing Sipho Shaven to secure him a club in the country.
Since departing Spanish lower-tier side Albacete in 2019, the Ghanaian midfielder has been training with Ghana premier league side Hearts of Oak, fueling reports of a possible switch to join the rainbow club.
But South African football agent, Sipho Shaven in an interview with KickOff.com has confirmed that the player has opted to play in the PSL.
“He has given me the mandate to talk to clubs in South Africa. He is very keen to play in the PSL next season.
“I will be engaging with a few clubs in the next few days to see if there is a chance to bring him to South Africa next season”, Shaven is quoted by Ghanasoccernet.
“Remember, our league is well respected on the continent and a high-profile player will not turn down an opportunity to play in the PSL.
“He is currently training with Liberty in his home country to keep himself fit. He is a free agent”, the SA football agent concluded.
Sulley Muntari, 35, has featured for a host of clubs in Europe since leaving Liberty professionals as an academy product.
He has featured for clubs including Udinese, Portsmouth, AC Milan, and Inter Milan where he won the UEFA Champions League.
Muntari following his senior debut in 2002 went on to play 84 times, scoring 20 goals in the process.
