Sulley Muntari sued by Italian Businessman for €97,000

Sulley Ali Muntari, has been sued at the Accra High Court by businessman Rodrigo Renato Gianno.

The writ and statement of claim was filed on March 21, 2022, by lawyer Kwadwo Gyasi Ntrakwah of Ntrakwah and Co.

He is demanding the payment of €97,320 which he alleges the footballer has refused to pay him.

He explains that between 2015 and 2017, the Hearts of Oak Midfielder contracted him to book and pay for airline tickets and hotel rooms for him, his family and friends.

Mr. Gianno says cheques issued by the footballer to pay the said amounts were all dishonored by the banks. The footballer, he continues in his writ, subsequently acknowledged the debt to the businessman and promised to pay.

This, the businessman alleges has not been done, hence, the decision to seek the intervention of the court.

The businessman says he sued the footballer at the Court of Milan in 2019 and got judgement in his favour. This notwithstanding, the money has still not been paid.

He wants the High Court to rule that he is entitled to recover the amount owed him as well as interest on the amount plus general damages for breach of contract.
