Stars Abroad

​Ghana international Muniru Sulley has commenced pre-season training with new club FC Tambov ahead of next season.

Sulley joined the newly promoted Russian Premier League side after ending his stay with Belarusian side Dinamo Minsk last week.

The younger brother of former AC Milan and Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari penned a one-year contract with an option for another year.

The 26-year-old has immediately joined the club for pre-season as they prepare for next season's Russian top flight league and also look to impress the technical handlers of the club.

FC Tambov, founded in 2003, gained a historic promotion to the Russian top-flight after winning the 2018/19 Russian National Football League.

The Ghanaian midfielder is now set to play for his sixth European club after previously representing Romanian duo CFR Cluj and Steaua Bucuresti; Portuguese side Tondela, Turkish Super Lig side Yeni Malatyaspor and FC Dinamo Minsk.
