The recent shocking move of Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng to Spanish giants Barcelona has sparked countless debates among Ghanaian football fans.
One of the most frequent arguments is whether Prince should receive a recall to the Black Stars in the wake of his giant move or whether he should still be left in the cold.
Boateng is one of two Black Stars players suspended from the team following disciplinary issues at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The German-born footballer has yet to play for Ghana since then and his suspension still stands.
The one person who can recall him to the team, Kwesi Appiah, has spoken out about his recent move. According to Appiah, Boateng might play for Ghana again but for his suspension to be lifted he first has to render an apology.
“Kevin-Prince Boateng is a Ghanaian and currently he is playing very well and if you look at our striking options we have always relied on Gyan so is about time we all check and get at least four strikers that we can always rely on,” Appiah said in an interview on Asempa Fm.
“Kevin is one of the good strikers as I have said, but in Brazil, he [Kevin] and Sulley were suspended by the FA for their unruly behaviours and I think Sulley has written a letter to apologise and looking at how Kevin is playing now, if he should write a letter to apologise, I will invite him because it is about the country not about any individual.” Appiah added.
Boateng has two goals in 15 caps for the Black Stars but for Ghanaians calling for his return, he has made it clear his international career is practically over.
