Youngster Kingsley Schlindler has pledged his international future to Ghana even if it means playing for the junior teams.
The 19-year-old currently plays for the junior team of German club Hannover 96 after stints with Concordia Hamburg.
And though with a chance to play for Germany, Schlindler insists he prefers to play for Ghana.
“I will play for Ghana. It is my motherland and I love to play more for Ghana than for Germany,” he told Accra-based Radio XYZ.
“If I get the chance I would like to play for Ghana U-20 not for Germany.”
The German-born to Ghanaian parents however admits he will need a couple of years before breaking into Hannover’s first team.
“I think my chances to play in Bundeliga now will be better elsewhere but at Hannover maybe in one or two years.”
Schlindler hopes to to join Quicny Owusu-Abeyie and Kevin-Prince Boateng as players with dual nationalities to have played for Ghana.
