Derek Boateng wants to leave Fulham to make Ghana's World Cup squad

Midfielder Derek Boateng is seeking a move away from Fulham to aid his bid of making Ghana’s squad for the 2014 World Cup.

The 30-year-old has made just three appearances for the Cottagers since his move to the Premier League last summer from Ukrainian club FC Dnipro.

Boateng is eager to be part of the Black Stars squad for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

The ex Getafe man has however not played for Ghana for almost a year as he continue to struggle for first team action at Fulham.

The vastly travelled midfielder now fears his chances of joining the Black Stars team for his third World Cup finals next year in Brazil are getting slimmer by the day as he continues to warm the bench.

Boateng who was brought in by sacked coach Martin Jol is now looking for at least a loan move away from the London-based club to brighten his chances of catching the national team flight to Brazil for the big soccer fiesta.

“It is every players dream to play in the World Cup and I want to go to Brazil to help my national team, (but) I cannot go to Brazil while I continue to warm the bench at Fulham,” he said.

“I was signed by Martin (Jol) and he is no more with us, so I have started speaking to Fulham and hopefully they will understand me and allow me to go on loan.

“Scott (Parker) and the other players are doing well, and I don’t think I can be guaranteed a permanent place with the starting lineup.

“I know this request won’t cause any problem for both parties.”

Boateng played for Ghana in their maiden World Cup appearance seven years ago in Germany.

He was also part of the Black Stars squad that reached the quarter finals of the last edition in South Africa even though he did not play a single game.

    Don’t worry…the Kumasi coach will name all the inlaws who are out of shape to make the trip,wise up* Ghana fans,

    • Ghanaman says:

      At least he was the first Ghanaian to qualify us for the world cup. What have you done with your pathetic life you useless son of a whore!!

      • Ansong says:

        Ghanaman,what have you also done with your miserable life. You son of a bitch!

      • OGYA says:

        Ghanaman, What kind of a stupid statement is that?, I will like to know what your contributed to Ghana is other than being born there? Any other Ghanaian coach that has been tagging along the Black Stars for years like Akwesi Appiah did could have qualified Ghana to the World Cup with the quality of players we have now. Now lets see if he is capable in doing the actual coaching during the WC when we are loosing.

        I will like to see your pathetic ignorant self learn something that you were not brought up with, common sense.

    • my says:

      whether he is kumasi coach or the blackstars coach, he is our coach and we support him. You can go fuck yourself for all we care

  2. spellBOUND says:

    whats with all these old players wanting back into the squad?????? mr. boateng, i seriously dont know who u expect to replace in the squad or bench…….

    if u were a defender, i will say by all means, but midfield, i dont know. good luck though.

  3. Ghanaman says:

    Once this fool is allowed back in the Squad then we’re done and by that I mean will be playing the w/cup matches with only 10 men.

    • Derek Boateng says:

      You are a very useless man! Who is the fool? I am better than your whole fucking family. You people don’t help Ghana, but hide behind computers and insult us. I wish I could meet you, and teach some real lessons. Ass hole.

    • Assemblyman says:

      Massa the word fool is a big word..Kindly withdraw.Derek has served Ghana over a long time since the U-17 level.He was just victimized in our recent nations cup campaign.There needed to be scapegoats for our abysmal performance.And unfortunately,he was the one.Which is why he hasnt been recalled into the national set up since then aside having issues at club level.Thats my opinion actually..

  4. Boro says:

    I thought you said you starting to understand the english football and when i said you better concentrate on working hard to get a first team play and stop the propaganda. Some people thought i have problem with you and rained insults on me. Thank God you finally agree. Hope you can get playing time to prove you still got it.

  5. nana says:

    Mr boateng sorry this world cup u are not part of the squard

  6. kuukuphilly says:

    Obviously the guys are better than him thats why hes on the bench…this midfield is fully loaded so i dont think theres a place for boateng..i really want frimpong to make the squad for his toughness.

    • iantwii says:

      ABSOLUTELY. Frimpong deserves to be on the team. He can help us a lot. But because he is an Ashanti, some idiots don’t want him in the squad. I believe he is better than Badu and Rabiu.

      • Ghanaba says:

        Of course he is better than Rabiu and Badu, that is why he keeps warming the bench of Arsenals and get demoted to the second team at will, while Badu and Rabiu play for their first teams. What is wrong with some of you that you won’t learn to put away your stinking tribalistic cloaks? Leave the coach to do his job!

  7. Papadinho says:

    ahahahaha say what!!!! This done dude wants to return back? ahaha boy you better retire from international football cause whop are u gonna bench??? tell me and i will maybe prove you right…kwasia boy!! there’s no place for u in this current black stars squad. Even KPB is praying to make the final list and a bench warmer is already eyeing the final list? hhhmmmm I blame AA for this stupid talk from this stupid dude. Bra Boateng, make u forget about the world cup and dream of African cup cause African cup is for our third team and to introduce new talents. Who knows…………you might end up as the captain of our third side
    Bless!!!!!!!!

    • Stranger Danger says:

      geeze! chill your tits man. The lack of respect on this article omg. The guy played for us, there was a point in time when you all were cheering him on, and now some years later you guys made a full 180 turn, and are now bashing him to the point of insulting him just because he wishes to improve in his club level to play for Ghana again.
      If you wanna make a point go ahead and make it, does it take insult to put that comment across the table? God help Ghana.

  8. Adebayo says:

    Scott Parker can’t make the English world cup squad and he’s keeping you out of the team…

  9. kuukuphilly says:

    Dont forget rabiu mohamed is coming back from injury..selection headache for coach.

  10. O says:

    Please guys can we engage in healthy discussion devoid of insult? Just speak your mind and eschew the tribalism and personality attacks.why can’t wecall ourselves ghanains interested of…

  11. texas says:

    Gone were the days when most of you guys advocating for the call of Derek Boateng into the team! hmmmmm time changes…but bra Boateng you no go fit make the grade for this team. You have been to two world cups – 2006 and 2010 so please get some rest. With you playing, the ball will never cross the center line when Black Stars have it!

  12. evans amoako says:
