The Ghanaian midfielder, Kevin-Prince Boateng, who rose to international fame during the world cup has been dropped from the squad that will be facing Nigeria’s Super Eagles in next month’s international friendly.
This comes after the Black Star's coach, Goran Stevanovic's frustration with Boateng's persistent lack of commitment to the team. Prince Boateng, 24, currently a midfielder for AC Milan has been unable to play with the national team due to his claims of recovering from surgery, however, he made no hesistation to play for AC Milan on Wednesday in their friendly against Solbiatese.
Boateng also performed terribly in the Black Stars' game against Congo held in Kumasi a few weeks ago and refused to travel with his team to South Korea for a friendly, claiming he was too tired.
FA authorities suspect that Boateng will not be available for the game on August 9 either. Fellow Black Stars players are concerned that the German-born player only chooses to play in the high profile games.
Prior to joining the Ghana national team, Boateng's career was dwindling, as he was kicked off the German youth national team for indiscipline and sacked by Tottenham for non performance. The Ghana national team gave him the opportunity to prove himself, and some Ghanaians can't help but feel that the midfielder only used Ghana to make a name for himself.
A new player will replace him very soon.
