THIS former Champions League winner looked unrecognisable after coming out of retirement to play in his native country of Ghana.

The 38-year-old is better known for his trophy-laden spell at Inter Milan.

He won eight major titles with Inter between 2008 and 2012.

That includes two Serie A titles and a Champions League.

The 84-cap former Ghana international retired from professional football in 2019.

That was after an unsuccessful spell with Albacete.

But after three years out, the new-look Sulley Muntari signed for Ghana Premier League champions Hearts of Oak back in February 2022.

Muntari only penned a six-month deal to see out the remainder of the season with his local team and made 11 appearances, scoring once.

He ditched his usual short hair for a longer look with a beard.

The former Portsmouth ace and FA Cup winner isn’t the only high profile former Ghanaian to return to his native country to play.

Asamoah Gyan – who has 109 caps and 51 international goals – played for Legon Cities FC.

Muntari’s younger brother Sulley Muniru is also a professional footballer.

The 29-year-old has been playing for FCSB in Romania.
