Sulley Muntari makes Milan bench in 1-0 win over Atalanta

The 28-year-old sat on the bench for Milan this weekend as his dream comeback inches very close to reality

Ghana midfielder, Sulley Muntari sat on the bench for AC Milan when they beat Atalanta 1-0 on Sunday.

The 28-year-old has had his season blighted with injury and that even led to his exclusion from Ghana’s squad for the 2013 Afcon in South Africa.

Muntari picked up a knee injury in the summer of 2012 when he was in Accra for holidays.

He was scheduled to make a return by December 2012 but the recuperating process stalled a bit.

However, the former Inter Milan man could soon kick the ball in the Serie A after finding a place on the bench this weekend.
