Veteran Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari has distanced himself from reports making rounds in Italy that he was arrested and his vehicle impounded by Italian police.
News went viral in Italy that the former AC Milan,Inter Milan and Pescara man is currently being investigated for financial malfeasance and indebtedness to his former agent.
The former Black Stars midfielder’s attorney’s released a statement shortly after the purported incident became public knowledge,rubbishing the validity of the reports.
Mr. Sulley Muntari has instructed our Studio to draft and disseminate this release in reference to the news that this morning appears on several online newspapers about the seizure of the car he led.
The fact, labeled as the effect of “major economic difficulties”, is the consequence of a mere dislocation of the leasing company of the leasing company (contractual subject).
Mr Muntari, who did not know the disguise, is working to resolve it in the immediate aftermath.
In any case, Mr Muntari stressed that there were no difficulties in which he would be doing according to the version of the facts reported by the various newspapers.
Therefore, the editors interested in a timely correction or publication of this denial are invited
Yours sincerely, Massimo D’Onofrio
The player himself took to his official twitter handle to express his dismay.
