Muntari a Valencia target?

'We seem to have missed out on Mohamed Sissoko but Muntari plays a similar role and he would be excellent,' Koeman told The Sun.
This seems a blatant attempt to unsettle a player while he is away at the African Nations cup, Pompey are miles away and this sort of comment could turn his head, but Koeman has shown he doesn't always play fair when he was still on the pitch, so should come as no surprise.
For the record Muntari cost £7M, so his price should certainly be a lot higher if he were to up sticks.

In other circles this would surely be seen as tapping up, Koeman should shut his mouth

will he go? no. he wants to make it big in the premier league. going to valencia will not help hisdream, and will not help our dream. our manager has just shown him that he thinks we can make it (very!) big - he addmited to supporting pompey all year last season whist he was at udinese - no, he wont be mooving!

If he went he wouldn't be a huge loss. We haven't seen the best from him yet. Either way it's a sound buy by Harry because we'll get at least 10m from his sale.

I read this one earlier and laughed. Now HR is staying I am certain his players will stay. Muntari is one of those players and is going nowhere and yes Koeman is tapping up without a doubt. Naughty Dutchman!!

Koeman is the knobhead who told Fanfan to not go to Pompey as they were too small a club, we should tell him to go and get stuffed.

i seem to remember spitting Koeman put off jefferson fanfan from coming to pompey as we weren't what was it ... oh yes "ambitious enough" well we should make a formal complaint to uefa or just stir things up a bit, hasn't he got a striker we would like

thats right russ, zigic was a very expensive bust for that squad, still a good player tho. As for Muntari he a quality young player and his name will be constantly brought up in the rumor mill, he will leave the club at some point (for big money I hope, as well as Kranjcar) but I cant see that happening for at least another year and a half. This team is just getting started!!

Koeman can day all he wants.. Sulley made it oerfectly clear that it was the English League he wanted to play in .. He also said he was a Pompey fan.. He might move on one day but not yet ..he's still settlng in ..I think we'll get the rest of this nad hopefuly all the next season before the big 4 come sniffing with some serious bucks.. Munners looks like a shrewd buy by Harry..

carpet - that was stange that we said basically the same thing, the beers made my post alittle jumbled, but you got the point.. using the words 'hate' are quite strong but i am close to 'hating' ronald koeman tbh, i know i very much dislike the fella... yep, good idea russ lets launch a complaint to fifa and see if they can back us as a club with 'no ambition' is having its player here basically tapped up... either way tho, sulley wont leave for spain.
