‘Don’t Give KP Boateng A Call-Up Yet’ – Kwabena Yeboah
Kwabena Yeboah, president of the Ghana Sports Writers Association, strongly opposed the return of Kevin-Prince Boateng to the Black Stars.
Boateng was signed by Spanish giants, Barcelona from Sassuolo last week, which has revived his call for re-ignition to be allowed to play for the national team.
The German-born Ghanaian attacker who is serving an indefinite suspension from Black Stars, was thrown out of Ghana’s squad after the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil for gross indiscipline and verbally abusing head coach Kwesi Appiah.
“Yes he[Kevin] is playing well, but what people forget is that if you are constituting a team, it is not about who can play but it is also about temperament and discipline. You do not need a character who will be cancerous to the dressing room because it is a collective effort,” Kwabena Yeboah said on Joy Sports Link on Joy FM.
He continued saying “But people have a divergent opinion and I am not going to argue with anyone. If the manager of the team decides that going forward he wants him[Kevin] to be part of the team so be it but if I was in charge there would be absolutely no way.”
