Sulley Muntari

Hajia Kande, the famous mother of former Black Stars, Portsmouth and AC Millan midfielder, Sulley Muntari has died.

According to reports, the talented footballer’s mother died on Sunday, May 30 after battling with an illness.

The deceased is said to be very supportive of her two sons, Sulley Muntari and former Asante Kotoko midfielder Muniru Sulley who now plays for the Belarusian side, Minsk.

Hajia Kande made headlines after her rant that the Ghana football team will not perform well without her son’s contribution, back in 2009.

“No Sulley, no Black Stars; that is the plain truth, so those peddling those lies should stop,” she told Fox FM in Kumasi.

Following the news of her death, renowned sports journalists and celebrities have thronged social media to express their condolences.

The Professional Footballers Association of Ghana (PFAG) also extended its support for Mr Muntari and his family.
