Sulley Muntari: Deportivo La Coruna history convinced me

Sulley Muntari is delighted to have won a contract with Deportivo La Coruna.

The former Inter and AC Milan player linked up again with Clarence Seedorf in Galicia.

"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."

However, it is clear that he knows little about the clubs past.

"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."

He was, however, happy to be at Estadio El Riazor and has set out goals for his time at the club.

"I'm very happy to play to be in a historic club like this and in a dressing room that has welcomed me so warmly," he commented.

"We have to play to win and survive in the first division and I'm sure we can achieve it.

"My mission is to help my team-mates to win, run, get the ball and give it to my strikers.

"If I score, great, but the aim is to give the ball to the strikers.

"Starting? It depends on the coach and what he needs, I'm here to help the team and the club."
