- Sulley Muntari has been an instant hit since joining Accra-based Ghana Premier League outfit Hearts of Oak mid-way through the ongoing campaign
- However, his conspicuous absence in most away trips of the Phobians has birthed many reports the veteran midfielder is full of himself
- The spokesperson of the club, Opare Addo has poured cold water on the reports suggesting Sulley does not have a negative ego
Communications Director of Hearts of Oak, Opare Addo has refuted claims veteran midfielder Sulley Muntari is egotistic.
According to multiple reports in the local media, Sulley Muntari has been full of himself since he joined the defending Ghana Premier League champions.
The reports suggest his continuous absence in most away games of the Phobians is a testament to his egoistic nature, which many infer has caused an uproar in the Hearts of Oak dressing room.
But moving in to defend the former Inter Milan and AC Milan midfielder, Opare Addo suggested the reports are fallacious and at best a figment of the mind's eye which is targeted at putting his hard-earned reputation in the mud.

“For the notion out there about Muntari, well you should get close to him and you will notice that he is even more friendly than we thought. He doesn't have a negative ego. He is a professional footballer,” Opare Addo said in an interview with Original TV as quoted by Football Ghana.
Muntari has been a key cog of coach Samuel Boadu's side this season despite joining the club halfway through the season.
He has scored one goal and provided two assists in six league games for Hearts of Oak so far this season and put up a masterclass performance in the club's President's Cup success against fierce rivals Asante Kotoko.
