Muntari jumped at Milan chance

Sulley Muntari says he didn’t hesitate when given the opportunity to leave Inter for San Siro rivals Milan.

The Ghanaian international joined the Rossoneri on loan last month after struggling to get a game with the Nerazzurri.

“I wasn’t the first player to change shirts but not city,” the midfielder told the Gazzetta dello Sport on Wednesday.

“It seemed like an excellent opportunity for me and I accepted it straight away.”

Although the transfer was wrapped up late in the winter window, Muntari was expecting the switch to happen.

“I had already spoken to Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri before the African Cup of Nations,” he continued.

“I was then welcomed to the club by Vice-President Adriano Galliani and director Ariedo Braida.”

Muntari, 27, joined Inter from Portsmouth in 2008 and spent part of last season on loan at Sunderland.

The ball-winner follows in the footsteps of players like Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf who swapped Inter for Milan.
