Muntari to 'clean up his act'

Muntari to 'clean up his act'

Recently Harry Redknapp had said Sulley Muntari would have to improve his disciplinary record - Muntari has 'vowed' to do so reports bbc.co.uk.

Our club record signing said 'I guess sometimes I go in hard, rough and late. But in relation to what I experienced last year I don't want to do it again.

'I just want to behave like a serious professional and help the team.

'I cannot be sitting in the stands every week because of suspension so I will just do my home work well, play well and fair without getting cards and suspensions'.

Italians do not really like the physical side of the game too much do they, so although I do not know the exact details of his cards last season, what are viewed as 'hard, rough and late' in Italy could be viewed as just 'another challenge' in the Premiership.

Yep, he will need to cut out unnecessary cards - if he was picking these up anyway? - but we do not want him turning into a player that tip toes around. A bit of extra bite, so long as it is fair is exactly what we want to see from Muntari - and more!

PLAY UP POMPEY!

This is all good as long as he's prompted to forget about going easy on the likes of Joey Barton.

It will be how the refs see his game. He is another new player to the prem, the refs won't know anything about him so he will get away with some & not others. Hopefully any suspensions he gets will coincide with the Africa Cup!

Storagematt, you say he may get away with some initally, but all the papers saying "Muntari to clean up his act" might give them a clue about his style! Still, I like the idea of his ternasity anyway!

CC. What is a hard yet fair tackle & what is a hard yet dirty tackle can come down to the refs view & the opposing players reaction. Some he'll get away with & some he wont!

Not to worried about him serving a couple of bans, midfield is one position we are well covered in
