Kevin-Prince Boateng wants to play for the Black Stars again as he says he did nothing wrong during Ghana’s chaotic 2014 world cup campaign.
Boateng was sent home from the 2014 world cup for what the GFA said was “vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah” as Ghana’s participation disintegrated in rows over money and indiscipline.
Boateng is suspended indefinitely from national team duties by the Ghana Football Association after that Brazil incident.
“There were people who had a problem with me. I don’t know for what reason. They had their reason but they made them up. I think it was not the right decision that they kicked me out,” the former AC Milan midfielder told CCTV Africa.
He has been in fine form at Las Palmas in the La Liga for whom he has scored four goals in eight games, more than his tally for the past two seasons.
Now, he is hoping he can add a third world cup appearance with Ghana to his CV.
“It is for every player a big dream to play a world cup. If there would be a chance to play a third world cup I would not say no”, he told CCTV Africa.
“There are not a lot of players who can say they played in three world cups. But before this happens we have to have a lot of talks because I don’t want to go back with a bad spirit. If I would go back, I want everything to be perfect so we can work perfect together.”
Boateng became a Ghana international in 2010 in time for the South Africa 2010 world cup before going on to impress at that year’s world cup.
But he quit a year after the tournament, claiming his body could not combine the demand of club and international football.
He was back in the side for the final world cup qualifying play-off against Egypt before making the squad that represented Ghana in Brazil.
