Ghana coach says he won't pick Kevin-Prince Boateng again for Black Stars
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has made it clear that he will not call up Kevin-Prince Boateng in the future after their recent World Cup bust-up.
Boateng, who plays for German side Schalke, was thrown out of the team camp ahead of its final group game for insulting Appiah during a training session.
AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari was also sent home for hitting an official.
Following their clash in Brazil, Appiah said he no longer has any space for Boateng in his team.
“For now, Kevin-Prince Boateng is not part of my plans,” Appiah told a press conference in Accra on Wednesday.
Once arriving back in Ghana, Appiah said he would only select players who are disciplined, committed and ready to die for their country.
The conflict took place ahead of Ghana’s crunch game against Portugal.
Boateng was kicked out of the camp after directing vulgar verbal insults towards Appiah.
That wasn’t the only controversy surrounding the Black Stars during the tournament.
Some players in the team had a dispute with team officials over unpaid bonuses which resulted in money being flown in from Ghana to settle their needs.
