Muntari focused on Pompey

14 years ago

Sulley Muntari has pledged his commitment to Portsmouth but admitted he would one day like to join a bigger club.

The Ghanaian midfielder has been linked with a move to Liverpool after impressing in his first few months at Fratton Park.

Harry Redknapp moved quickly to dismiss the speculation and Muntari has also stressed that he is staying focused on Pompey.

But Muntari concedes that he was flattered to hear reports of interest from Liverpool, and has expressed his desire to play for a top club in the future.

"There's not anything in the Liverpool rumours," he told The News. "I am concentrating on Portsmouth, I want to do well here.

"I don't know what the future holds, but I'm doing well for Portsmouth and that' s what's in my head now.

"But I've said before, it's my dream to play for a bigger club, so that's what I'm aiming for.

"For now, I am trying my best to be able to play well for Portsmouth and to get points for Portsmouth because I have a contract here until five years.

"It's great to have that kind of recognition because they are a big club and they are a very good side, that's what I am aiming to be able to do.

"I want to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world."

Portsmouth will be looking to extend their winning run away from home when they travel to Liverpool on Saturday and Muntari is excited about the clash.

"It's going to be difficult. They are a very good side who play very good football," he said.

"The crowd there, the atmosphere there, it's a fantastic place. But we will try our best to get a point there."
