Sulley Muntari Reveals Clarence Seedorf Role In Deportivo La Coruna Switch

Veteran midfielder Sulley Muntari has revealed head coach Clarence Seedorf played a key role in his signing for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.

The 33-year-old has been handed a four-month contract after impressing during a trial session.

“I had offers, but I chose to come here because it’s a club that was in the Champions League,” he explained.

“They have the DNA of a big club, historic and with a winning mentality.

“It was easy to choose, because also there is an old team-mate here.”

Muntari embarrassingly admitted that he didn’t know much about  Juan Carlos Valeron, who is Deportivo’s best ever player.

“I don’t know him. Was he a good player?” he said when asked about wearing the number 21 shirt previously worn by club legend Juan Carlos Valeron.

“If he was a legend, then it will be a big responsibility.”

Muntari made his debut for Deportivo La Coruna as they drew goalless with Espanyol in the Spanish LaLiga match at the Estadio Abanca-Raizor on Friday.
