Ghana FA to blame for Kevin-Prince Boateng's retirement - Jordan Ayew

Ghana FA to blame for Kevin-Prince Boateng retirement - Jordan Ayew

Jordan Ayew suggests the Ghana FA pushed KP Boateng away

By Ameenu Shardow

Jordan Ayew has astonishingly hinted the Ghana FA is responsible for the premature retirement of Kevin-Prince Boateng from the Black Stars.

The AC Milan star shocked the whole world last year by announcing his decision to quit the Black Stars after helping the side to a quarter final finish at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

There have been reports of a perceived rift between the 25-year-old and then Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic leading to his retirement.

But Boateng made mention of nothing of the sort when officially notifying the Ghana FA of his decision – rather citing his inability to cope with the rigorousness of playing for both club and country.

In a surprising twist to the whole Boateng saga however, Jordan who was not included in the 26-man squad for the 2013 Nations Cup and is close to Boateng has hinted the former Tottenham Hotspurs player quit the Black Stars over presumably harsh treatment by the Ghana FA.

“It’s not so bad to not be taken with Ghana. This is Africa you know … I did not want to go into details, but if Kevin-Prince Boateng left the team, it is not for nothing,” Ayew told French newspaper L’Equipe.

“Many things happen with the Federation of Ghana. I cannot tell you … There are things that are not normal.”

Jordan’s subdued revelation is likely to attract a further probe by the Ghana FA and the public at large who are desperate to find the real reasons why the German-born Ghanaian quit the now very attractive Black Stars team.

The 20-year-old’s revelation could also be interpreted as his parting shot to the Ghana FA over his exclusion from the provisional Black Stars squad for the 2013 Nations Cup.

The Olympique Marseille striker apart from flashes of his brilliance at the tail end of Ghana’s disappointing run at the 2012 AFCON has failed to impress in a Black Stars shirt.

He was a mere passenger in Ghana’s 1-0 loss to Zambia in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers and again flopped miserably in the 2-0 win over Malawi in the first leg of the ultimate 2013 Nations Cup qualifier.

It is believed for these reasons that coach Akwasi Appiah decided against taking the budding star to South Africa – but it has been a decision that has proved quite unpopular to numerous Ghana football fans.

    He needs to stop acting like a bitch and accept that he was dropped. France excluded Nasri, Henry, Anelka and others from the Euro! These are more accomplished players than you. Kevin Prince Boateng is not a role model and is not good enough to play for Ghana right now. You see, his indiscipline has made him useless to even AC Milan were he is currently failing. Now, he is a Bench warmer at AC Milan and has not been performing this year. What this shows is the guy has a problem! In life to be successful you need discipline!!!

    You have been given chances playing for Ghana that you would not have received playing for France. You got to start against Brazil in a friendly before you had even become a regular at your club. Your brother was fast tracked to the team and it was NOT based on Merit!!! Be appreciative and only those with 100 percent commitment should play for the black stars!!!

  2. kuukuphilly says:

    Just shut the fuck up Jordan,y now .so u knew all along and u kept ur mouth shut..u can also quit.

  3. Askantwi says:

    These Ayew brothers are BAD news. They should be dropped from the Black Stars indefinitely.

  4. Papadinho says:

    That boy is right, he don’t want to go into details. guys u should see these in a different way. The GFA of Ghana are the most corrupted fa I’ve ever seen take Quincy Owusu as an example. This boy knows that the GFA take money from players before their call ups that’s why he said he don’t wanna go into too many details. The GFA should stop this nonsense before time catch up with them. Before we know Adre, Jordan, Atsu and co will retire because of this corrupted ass holes. I know what he’s talking is true, i bet the GFA are shock because their biggest secret has just hit the public. Is just the beginning, just waiting for the other players to confirm this.
    God Bless

    • Ghanaman says:

      Stupid animal!!! You better come with evidence you fool! What money do some of the local players who are usually broke have to have even made Kwesi Appiahs Squad!!

      You are an ANIMAL and the son of a SLUT you FOOL!

      • Papadinho says:

        Hey dude if you don’t respect yourself, i do respect myself. i can see you are brought up with no discipline. But the fact is the GFA are corrupt even PAPA God knows that. I bet they take money from some players. it’s just a matter of time and all these players will come out and say it. Just waiting for them to be dropped.

        • Ghanaman says:

          Your mother is a dog and you are a puppy! Moron!! i hate people like you who try to put the team in disrepute with no evidence!!

          • Papadinho says:

            May god have mercy on you brother. How can you use that kind of words on a public site? Don’t you know there are a lot of kids out there that visits this site daily. But the fact is th GFA are corrupt.
            God Bless

          • Ghanaman says:

            Well then, you have to be corrected! When you make accusations you better have some good evidence!!!

      • Tuna says:

        Papadinho i agree with u….. in fact 100%…. this fa take bribe from some players… some also dont get their bonuses… they use this player to play matches on other countries independence day take money and pocket it…If Inkoom dont get all his winning bonus he still will play…But KPB might not want to play again… look into it… And for the insults of this page…please if you dont agree say i dont agree but no more insults…For me i think there is more to KPB retirement and Quincy not being called…And 100% yes the FA take bribe…example they took bribe for Massawudu Alhasan to play and market himself whiles Harrison Afful was dropped…GFA is corrupt ….But we want zero tolerance for all corruption.

    • Asem says:

      Papinhio or whatever!!They can all retire and Ghana BS will still be strong!!illiterates and spoon fed people!!!

  5. Gborwoko francis koffie says:

    Sometime i find it difficult to understand some of our national players. Once you left one out of a tournament then you will hear all sorts of nonesense from them. Many players had to endure the same exclusion just for other players to play for Ghana. Jordan and some players were given this privileges when they played in last AFCON. Players should note that there are not permanent place for any player in the black star. It abt time black star players respect their mate when they are selected

  6. Askantwi says:

    Reading between the lines, these Ayew brothers are in league with Prince Boateng and have been talking among themselves negatively about Black Stars Management. Such indiscipline should be rooted out completely out of the team. Any player close to them should be dropped as well. Akwasi Appiah should put his foot on the ground, fear no one, and deal with such insurgency swiftly and drastically. Remember former Kotoko boss Yaw Bawuah. Take a clue from his drastic and dramatic move that allowed Kotoko to win the African Cup with a less fancy, not as strong, line-Up after firing some players of the all-conquering 1982 team that fell short due to INDISCIPLINE.

  7. Paa says:

    it is every unfortunate that the only ghanaian striker playing in the top european league is not part of the squard. Yet we r happy to take unknown and untested players along.i wish the BS gud luck.

  8. Dready says:

    Jordan Ayew.why are you now saying this when u could have said this a long time ago?It’s bcos you were dropped from the team that is why.Let me tell u Jordan,you are not even a good player for real.U are slow and boring to watch.And who is Kevin anyway.Ur father should be teaching u and ur brother some discipline for real.Your dad was a discipline player and dedicated.If u want to reach far in soccer,u better discipline urselfs and start zipping ur mouth.

  9. johado says:

    u ppl u enter park b4.even maradona has bad days.ayews neva wromg u.kwesi appiah no serious.afcon is not gamble ground.u included injured yahaya without muntari b/cos of cpt a.gyan.foooooool

  10. austin says:

    “Many things happen with the Federation of Ghana. I cannot tell you … There are things that are not normal” What is go wrong about saying this if he says this it could be in the interest of the FA cos it this happen the are not normal and the FA CAN DEAL WITH IT THAT MAKE THEM GOOD

  11. Mr. Cross says:

    Jordan is just a kid who needs more experiences. He must grow up.

  12. KWAME PITO says:

    WHAT HE SAID IS OK, HE POINTED OUT THAT SOME THINGS ARE NOT NORMAL WITH THE FA, THATS IT, NO DETAILS. WE ALL KNOW THIS BUT WHEN IT COMES FROM A PLAYERS MOUTH THEN TROUBLE? HYPOCRITES.
    BESIDES I HAVE SAID IT ON THIS SITE BEFORE, THAT KPB RETIRED DUE TO THE TREATMENT METED OUT TO HIM BY GHANA OFFICIALS WHEN HE SHOWED UP IN ENGLAND FOR OUR MATCH AGAINST THE 3 LIONS. OBVIOUSLY HE GAVE DIFFERENT REASONS TO AVOID LONG CASE. POOR GHANAIANS HAVE SHORT MEMORY.
    QUALITY PLAYERS WITH HIGH INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE LIKE BARWAUAH BALLOTELLI, DANNY TAKYI WELBECK,KPB, JEROME BOATENG, QUINCY ABEYIE WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT TO PLAY FOR BLACKSTARS UNTIL WE STOP BROWN-ENVELOPE AND FIX THIS CANKEROUS MANAGEMENT.

  13. Dr Who says:

    Jordan is crying because he was left out.He can join KPB to form a break away BS eleven.Was Jordan expecting a call up after that disappointing display against Malawi? Even Afriyie Acquah who won the 2nd leg match for us in Malawi was dropped! The BS team is not Nania FC where he can be assured of a permanent place even when he is out of form.
