Former Black Stars player Sulley Muntari has offered to help retrieve the salaries of junior doctors who have not been paid for almost a year. The midfielder says he has acquired “extensive experience in dealing with such matters” from his time with the national football team.
Muntari is reportedly horrified by the plight of the 91 junior doctors who have not been paid since they begun work in September 2014. He said it is time for the doctors to change their tactics after weeks of talks with the Controller and Accountant General’s Department failed to yield results. “These people are no different from the clowns within the football administration. They don’t seem to respond to gentle persuasions. Just one Muntari slap will push them to release the salaries,” explained Sulley Muntari.
The no-nonsense midfielder has been instrumental in retrieving unpaid fees for the Black Stars over the years. Insiders say the famous ‘Muntari slap’ was highly instrumental in forcing the Black Stars management team to release unpaid appearance fees during the last World Cup.
The junior doctors have welcomed the player’s offer and agreed to allow Muntari to take over negotiations with the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.
