Muslim football players make headlines

Muslim footballer Sulley Ali Muntari has been receiving positive response from Italian Muslims, after celebrating a recent goal by performing a prostration to God during an important Italian football match. Muntari, who was born in Ghana, plays for Italy’s Inter Milan, and scored the winning goal against Juventus.

A supporter of Muntari said that they commented Muntari not just for team support, but because he “reminded all of us how you honor Allah, even on a football field.” “We are certain that Muntari’s example will be important for thousands of young Muslims that make up an important part of the sport in Italy,” said Hamza Piccardo, the director of Islam-Online Italy.
