The sacking of Inter Milan coach Gian Piero Gasperini may be good news for Sulley Muntari, who has been relegated to the bench since the beginning of the season.
Gasperini – who managed Inter for three games – has already announced that the 27-year-old midfielder is a surplus to requirements.
“It is sad to see the coach go but that is the life of working in football. At the moment I am concentrating on winning my place back in the starting team,” Muntari was quoted as saying on Mtnfootball.com
The Black Stars ace has been struggling since joining the Nerazzurri in 2008, failing to justify his £12m-move to the Italian giants from English side Portsmouth.
He was mainly used as a substitute under former coach Jose Mourinho before being loaned out to Sunderland last January. Financial issues hampered his permanent move to the Premier League side, forcing him back to Italy.
“I am not a quitter. I am a fighter and I will continue to fight in training and during the matches to win the doubters over," he added.
“In every facet of life people go through difficulties. You face the difficulties and continue to work hard to ensure that you are back to your best.
“This is what I am doing and I am determined to stay and fight to return to the starting 11.”
