Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has not ruled out a move to convince Kevin-Prince Boateng to play for the Black Stars ahead of next year’s African Cup of Nations.
The AC Milan star shocked the West African nation in November last year when he called time on his international career claiming combing national and club duties was taken a toll on his health.
His close pal Andre Ayew revealed last month the 25-year-old was considering ending his self-imposed exile from the national team.
Appiah has previously failed to convince the former Tottenham man to rescind his decision to quit the national team.
But with barely four months for the start of the 2013 African Cup of Nations, the Ex-Ghana captain has not ruled out the possibility of including the player in his team if he decides to stage a comeback.
“Kevin is a great player and so there is that possibility. Like I have said we need the best players to play for national team,” Appiah said
“But that is not where the focus is. We’re still looking at players who are committed and ready to play for the national team.
“There are one or two players I am looking at and hopefully we will get the best to represent the country.”
Boateng switched national from Germany to play for Ghana and excelled heavily at the 2010 Fifa World Cup held in South Africa.
