Sulley Muntari reveals why his son stopped watching his games

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that legendary Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari has shared his experience playing in the domestic topflight league with Hearts of Oak.

The 37-year-old spent six months with the Accra-based club, winning the President Cup and the FA Cup.

His decision to play in the Ghana Premier League was because his son wanted to watch him play, but Jamal Muntari quit going to the stadium after two games because his father could not score goals.
