Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari has decided to engage Spanish media house, sports.es in a legal battle over allegation that he was arrested and his car impounded for failing to pay rental fees.

Reports went viral on Tuesday that Sulley Muntari was arrested and a car he was driving seized over monies owed a rental service provider.

However, Muntari has denied the allegation and has rather instructed his lawyers to take the necessary steps to bring sports.es to book for defamation of character.

“I am hugely surprised about where the story is coming from. I am taking legal action against the website immediately for defamation,” Muntari told GHANAsoccernet.com from his base in Italy.

Sulley Muntari made the headlines last season after he walked off the pitch in protest against racial abuse while playing for Pescara against Cagliari in the Italian Serie A.

The Ghana international is club less after his six months contract with Pescara run out last season.
