Recently Harry Redknapp had said Sulley Muntari would have to improve his disciplinary record – Muntari has ‘vowed’ to do so reports

Our club record signing said ‘I guess sometimes I go in hard, rough and late. But in relation to what I experienced last year I don’t want to do it again.

‘I just want to behave like a serious professional and help the team.

‘I cannot be sitting in the stands every week because of suspension so I will just do my home work well, play well and fair without getting cards and suspensions’.

Italians do not really like the physical side of the game too much do they, so although I do not know the exact details of his cards last season, what are viewed as ‘hard, rough and late’ in Italy could be viewed as just ‘another challenge’ in the Premiership.

Yep, he will need to cut out unnecessary cards – if he was picking these up anyway? – but we do not want him turning into a player that tip toes around. A bit of extra bite, so long as it is fair is exactly what we want to see from Muntari – and more!
