AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari says he will return to football before the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa. The 27-year-old ruptured his anterior cruciate ligaments in his knee two weeks ago while playing football with friends on holidays in Ghana.
He went under knife last week in Milan and doctors said he will need six months to recover fully. But Muntari has cleared doubts about his lengthy lay-off and suggested he will be fit by January when the Nations Cup finals kick-starts.
“Before, before … I know my body and how it will react, I’ll be back very soon,” Muntari said in an interview.
