At his first meeting with the media since moving on-loan from Inter Milan to arch-rivals AC Milan last January, Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari said the move would boost his career, which has been at a standstill since joining Inter Milan.

“I am very excited to have passed from Inter to Milan. It is incredible and a major step forward for my career. This team is unique – one of the best in the world,” the 27-year-old midfielder, who has just played in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, was quoted as saying on football Italia.

The international player joined Inter Milan in 2008 but was relegated to the bench in the last couple of seasons.

He has already said he was seeking to play regular football, even if away from his current club.

“I arrive with much enthusiasm to do well and win. I will do my job and the coach will decide where to play me, but I’m totally available.

“Am I in the best team in Italy? No, I’m in the best team in the world,” Muntari concluded.
