Mensah praise for Muntari

Prior to signing Muntari from Inter Milan on loan until the end off

the season, boss Steve Bruce asked centre-half Mensah for his

opinion of the former Portsmouth midfielder. Mensah is happy to see

his faith has been justified and told the Sunderland Echo: “We all

know Sulley played for Portsmouth and did well – helping them to

win the FA Cup. “Then he went to Inter and did well as well and has

scored goals for the national team. It was Sunderland’s decision to

bring him here but they asked my opinion. “He’s a great player and

he’s starting to demonstrate that at Sunderland. When Sulley came,

he didn’t have a lot of fitness. But he played against Stoke and

then played for the national team last week. “He’s going to still

make a few mistakes because he’s not played many games. But I

believe he will still show his quality while he is here.”
