Wife of Sulley Muntari and former Miss Universe Ghana contestant, Menaye Donkor has revealed that she is in full support of her husband’s efforts to kick against racism in the game of football.
Speaking in an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah on Accra-based GH One TV, the model revealed that she was in full support of whatever decision her husband took to stand up agaoinst racism.
She added that her stance on the matter was no different than her husband’s in the sense that racism was an issue which needed critical attention.
The beauty queen added that Sulley Muntari was passionate about racism because of the immense love he had for the game of football. She also added that he was the best person to deal with the menace since he was one of the few people brave enough to come out to condemn the act.
She added that racism was going on a daily basis and it was affecting many young footballers. She said that Sulley Muntari was striving to teach children not to be racially abusive.
She recounted how a little child in the crowd racially abused her husband while he played football some years ago. She said Sulley did not understand the language back then so he did not know what the child was saying. She said that Sulley considered the little boy as his son because he was very young.
She indicated that she could not imagine her own son saying something demeaning to another person.
Sulley Muntari was a victim of racial attack during a football match between Italy-based Pescara and Cagliari. He eventually walked off the pitch when he was booked by the center referee after he had reported the incident to him.
