Muntari insists he's happy at Pompey

Muntari insists he's happy at Pompey

Sulley Muntari has answered the calls that have been doing the rounds that he wants to leave Pompey by insisting in The News that he is happy where he is: 'I'm happy here and enjoying my football.

'I'm happy with the performances from me and the team. I don't care if people don't recognise me. If they recognise Pompey that's great'.

Every player does have a price and if the right price was offered for Muntari he would be sold, but this is not going to happen in the immediate future, as this future is most certainly with us and the 'quotes' previously attributed to him - saying he wanted to play for a top 4 side - were from him, but from sometime again, they have just been rehashed and doctored to suit the papers needs with the 'reported' interest from Liverpool.

Muntari remains fully committed to Pompey and is not 'using' us and insists that we are in great shape to push on from our fantastic start for a European place at the end of the season: 'we're aiming for Europe because we have good players and a good manager.

'We have a way to go but we have the players, the ability - everything you need to be there.

'We have a lot of work to do still but we are planning to be in the top positions. If we keep playing and training well I seriously believe we can do it'.

As said the papers manipulate quotes and use them as they see fit, the vast majority of us spotted right away that his suggestion that he wanted to leave had only been a - not so - 'cleverly' doctored approach from the media using old quotes and working them as they saw fit...

Muntari has always been open and honest with his ambitions to play for the very best, which is understandable and fair enough, but he recognises the potential that we have so as long as we keep reaching and bettering this we will be able to keep him and all our other quality players.

I should think so to. He can leave when it suits us. If & when the mega teams come knocking they can pay the mega price. Until then...

i was hating the way the papers were spinning this muntari story, its not always so clear what they are doing but thankfully most of us could see through what they were up to... i do not doubt for one minute that if he gets the chance tho he will go, but this will not be for a while yet tho, and if we keep improving he will do more than okay with us wont he anyway.

It I suppose is a fact of life that the really class players like, Munti and Krunchie will at some point leave. If they keep on impressing at the rate they are it won't be too long. Not this Jan but the Summer maybe

ur right penton, Portsmouth is a club that just isnt rich enough and prestigious enough to attract the cream of the crop and or keep them here (saddly), however we have a wonderful team that is performing great with the players we do have and many of these players will be eventually sold to big clubs for 2-3 times what we originally paid for them, then we will take that money and invest in more of these young and exciting players. We shouldnt be depressed that we cannot compete with the huge clubs but should just be proud of what a great job is being done with the limited resources we do have available.

Well put Whitestones... I'd also add that as I've said before this media attention, however annoying, is a sign that Pompey and it's players are worth talking about... as much as we hate it and can recognise spin.. it is actually a good thing.. We just need to learn to ignore it (factually) or traet it with the comtempt it deserves...It was only a few weeks ago that Sulley said he sees no reason why Pompey shouldn't be in the top 4 .. so with my spin on it .. if he wants to play for a top 4 club he's in the right place...

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 30th May.

No Crawley return for Tubbs

Tubbs doesn't have a future at Pompey, he's on the transfer-list but offloading him could be difficult given his wages. These wouldn't be anywhere within Crawley's reach.

Pitfalls of Sheffield Wednesday loanee returning

As Catlin put it 'the gamble' of aiming sign Sheffield Wednesday loanee Lavery has to be one Pompey fans understand. It isn't as cut and dried as saying 'he's a free agent' sign him!

Lassie coming home...well sort of!

A-box-to-box player, capable of defensive duties, with ability to burst forward with intent to make things happen - Diarra is Pompey's man and wants an England return. I jest of course!
