Kevin-Prince Boateng has reported for pre-season training with German Bundesliga side Schalke 04.

The midfielder will join the Schalke’s intensive ten-day summer training camp in the Bavarian town of Grassau on Monday in order to optimally prepare for the upcoming campaign.

Boateng, who was thrown out of Ghana’s squad at the World Cup for allegedly insulting head coach Kwesi Appiah, was given extended holidays.

He faces a stiff opposition from Max Meyer for the number 10 position and the Ghana international must convince coach Jens Keller.

Last season, he scored six goals in 28 Bundesliga matches to help them secure a Champions League spot.

    It’s depressing how our players have moved on so easily from the world cup disgrace and fiasco. Are we the supporters also supposed to easily move on from their contribution to our national disgrace by also going holidaying in UAE, Ada or other places? Is it that some supporters who are still traumatised and still in shock should simply shake themselves up and start enjoying football again? Maybe it is all just a game after all and life goes on so we should just forget about the presidential enquiry too that will investigate the roles of our players, coaches, management, deputy minister and minister in this sad issue that a lot of people have already forgotten.
