Suleyman ‘Sulley’ Muntari’s high wage demands have reportedly hindered a move to South Africa’s Premier Soccer League (PSL).
According to Soccer Laduma, DStv Premiership clubs have been scared off by Muntari’s salary expectations.
Muntari has been linked with a move to either Cape Town City, Kaizer Chiefs or Maritzburg United after leaving Albacete in July.
“There’s a problem regarding Muntari’s proposed PSL move. The player’s demands are too high for the local market,’’ a source told Soccer Laduma.
“The guy is demanding around R15 million per annum. The clubs that his representatives have spoken to so far in the PSL have pulled out because of the player’s salary demands.”
Muntari is well known for the success he achieved in England and Italy where he most notably donned the colours of Portsmouth, Udinese, Inter and AC Milan.
The 36-year-old scored 20 goals in 84 caps for Ghana and was part of the Black Stars team that reached the quarter-finals at the 2010 FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa — where he famously scored his country’s solitary goal in their heartbreaking defeat to Uruguay at FNB Stadium.
