Ghana’s Sunderland Midfielder Sulley Muntari Sad After A Debut Defeat

The Ghanaian is not a happy man but set to focus on their next game against Spurs.
After tasting a debut defeat with Sunderland, Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari, said he is not a happy man but admits all is not over.

“It is not a good feeling right now,” the former Inter Milan left-footer said in a post-match briefing. “We wanted the three points of course and it was important to try to win here.”

“At the same time we played good football but we are not happy with the result.

“We controlled the game for long spells and that’s why we are having a lot of pain now. Stoke only kicked the ball in the air but they are strong.

“It’s a little bit sad but we have a good manager and good players here so we can bounce back.”

Stoke City recorded a 3-2 victory over the Wearsiders at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday but the Ghanaian is already looking forward to record his first win with Sunderland against Spurs next week.

“Now it is our job to move on from this. You have [to] go with it. If you lose a game, that is not the end of the life. We go back home to prepare for Spurs, which is a game we want to win at all costs, for sure,” Muntari added.
