Muntari’s younger brother Muniru Sulley part ways with Yeni Malatyaspor

Published on: 11 January 2019

Ghanaian midfielder Muniru Sulley has  mutually terminated his contract with Turkish Super Lig side Yeni Malatyaspor after just five months. 

The younger brother of former Inter and AC Milan player Sulley Muntari has struggled for game time since joining the Turkish side on a free transfer over the summer.

The 26-year-old featured in only five games in all competitions for the side this season.

A statement on the club’s official Twitter account read: ''Announcement | Our contract with Sulley Muniru has been mutually terminated. “Thank you Sulley Muniru ?.''

Muniru started his youth career at Ashanti Akim Missiles, a youngster club in his hometown Konongo. He helped his college team to win the national championship, being voted the best player.

He then played for the youth team of Liberty Professionals where he was the kingpin.

Muniru's urge to also pursue his career in Europe like his elder brother Sulley Muntari grew strongly. At the age of 18, Sullen joined Real Madrid on a trial.

He went on to play for CFR Cluj, Steaua București and later had a brief stint with Portuguese side Tondela.
