Ghanaian Sulley Muntari Says 2018 World Cup will "bring peace"

Ghanaian Sulley Muntari


Sulley Muntari of Ghana, who plays for Pescara in Italy's Serie A, wants to see change from FIFA and UEFA, he said they should provide more support for players who have been racially abused.

Muntari was suspended last month when he receive his second yellow card for leaving the pitch in a match at Cagliari. Though the decision was later overturned, it exemplified the limitations put on racially abused players like Muntari who appealed to the referee to take action before taking matters into his own hands.

"I am pleading to FIFA, UEFA, whoever, (to) look into things like this, because, most (players) get abused but they can't say anything," Muntari told CNN

In Bahrain, the FIFA Council "expressed its concern at recent high-profile incidents of racism and emphasized that member associations and referees should be ready to adopt a strict policy to deal with incidents of racist nature.

It's not just the level of support offered by the football authorities that has been troubling Muntari, who reveals that he received little support from his own Pescara teammates during and after the match.

"No one said anything and I wasn't expecting anybody to say anything," the 32-year-old says. "I look at certain things, I get really angry with them. Because your teammates are your family, (whether) you like it or not.

"You see them every day and for them to turn their back on you was something not very pleasant."
Muntari approached a section of the stands where he says he heard racial chants, and offered his jersey to a young fan as a symbolic gesture before storming off the pitch with just minutes left to play.

Match officials in Italy are required to temporarily stop play and issue warnings to put a curb on racist behavior. Muntari says the fourth official confirmed he heard abuse from a section of the crowd, but tthe second yellow card left him "feeling like a criminal."

"I think it is a good thing that Russia is going to host the next World Cup," said Muntari.
"They will show that maybe all Russians aren't racist. The world will see another part of Russia, and Russia will see another part of the world. They will mingle with different kinds of people, different kinds of states."

"FIFA has done well, because you can't run from your problems. You have to tackle (them)," he says.
"I have no doubt that the World Cup there is going to be amazing, and is going to bring a lot of people together, and peace."

FIFA's Men's Player of the Year 2016: Ronaldo

The Best FIFA Football Awards, Ronaldo

The Best FIFA Football Awards, Ronaldo

ZURICH - Cristiano Ronaldo was awarded the FIFA's player of the year award, which is his fourth, he topped his old rival Lionel Messi who was pulled out of the ceremony only a few hours earlier by his club Barcelona.

Italian Claudio Ranieri won the coach of the year award for leading rank outsiders Leicester City to the English Premier League title.

Ronaldo was rewarded for his performance in 2016 when he won the Champions League with his club Real Madrid and then Euro 2016 with Portugal. Five-times winner and four-times runner-up Messi was second and Frenchman Antoine Griezmann third.

Barcelona said that Wednesday's game against Athletic Bilbao would take priority over the ceremony and that none of their invited players would travel, which disappointed Ronaldo.

Ronaldo scored 42 goals for Real Madrid in 2016, plus 3 more for Portugal during their run to the Euro 2016 championship, and a further ten in World Cup qualifiers and international friendlies for his country. 48 goals in 1 year is an impressive feat that not a figure that many players can reach, and the fact that Ronaldo reached it during a time when many observers feel he’s starting to slow down is even more impressive.

U.S. Carli Lloyd won the women's player of the year award for the second year in a row.

Mohd Faiz Subri, of Malaysian Super League side Penang, won the goal of the year award for a 35-metre free kick in which the ball dipped and swung in a bewildering fashion to leave the goalkeeper stranded.
