Muntari given warning by Redknapp
Harry Redknapp has told the Pompey Site that Sulley Muntari will have to be move careful in future with some of his challenges, 'Muntari is stretching into challenges and he's got to be careful.
'His first booking was for an innocuous foul on Ronaldo but he should have been a bit more careful with the second one'.
It was not the way Muntari, Redknapp or the 20,000 plus fans would have wanted him to mark his Fratton debut was it, but what can you do. He was a little unfortunate, but he got what he had to get really.
I really like his hunger and determination, along with his willingness to chase everything day all day long but sometimes you just have to think hang on, lets leave this one be.
The first booking is openly regarded as 'one for the team' and although the second foul was not really with any malice or in an area of the field that was posing any threat to Pompey he left the ref with little choice but to sent him off.
I still want to see this hunger and bite that he shows, but his reputation will keep going before him if he does not rein it in a little.
The Pompey site says that he will be suspended against Bolton on Saturday, which is good news to me as my thinking was it would be the Chelsea match that he would miss out on. As much as I would like him to have faced Bolton I would rather he missed that more than Chelsea.
