Veteran midfielder Sulley Muntari has revealed head coach Clarence Seedorf played a key role in his signing for Spanish side Deportivo La Coruna.
The 33-year-old has been handed a four-month contract after impressing during a trial session.
“I had offers, but I chose to come here because it’s a club that was in the Champions League,” he explained.
“They have the DNA of a big club, historic and with a winning mentality.
“It was easy to choose because also there is an old team-mate here.”
Muntari embarrassingly admitted that he didn’t know much about Juan Carlos Valeron, who is Deportivo’s best ever player.
“I don’t know him. Was he a good player?” he said when asked about wearing the number 21 shirt previously worn by club legend Juan Carlos Valeron.
“If he was a legend, then it will be a big responsibility.”
Muntari made his debut for Deportivo La Coruna as they drew goalless with Espanyol in the Spanish La Liga match at the Estadio Abanca-Raizor on Friday.
