Sulley Muntari says he joined the Spanish outfit because of their winning mentality and being a club of great history.
The former Inter Milan midfielder joined Deportivo La Coruna after a successful trial and he has explained what motivated him to take that new challenge.
“I had offers, but I chose to come here because it’s a club that was in the Champions League,” he explained.
“They have the DNA of a big club, historic and with a winning mentality.
“It was easy to choose, because also there is an old team-mate here.”
Muntari embarrassingly admitted that he didn’t know much about Juan Carlos Valeron, who is Deportivo’s best ever player.
“I don’t know him. Was he a good player?” he said when asked about wearing the number 21 shirt previously worn by club legend Juan Carlos Valeron.
“If he was a legend, then it will be a big responsibility.”
