Kwabena Yeboah urges Ghana not to give Kevin Prince Boateng Black Stars call up



Ace Sports Broadcaster who doubles as the Sports Writers Association of Ghana president, Kwabena Yeboah has rubbished against any decision the Black Stars will recall suspended midfielder Kelvin Prince Boateng.

The midfielder was suspended after the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil for misbehaving. After his release by his former club AC Milan, Kelvin has experienced an overwhelming start in the Spanish La Liga with Las Palmas.

He has been able to score four goals which have given some Ghanaians reasons to call for his return into the Black Stars as the country seek to make it four straight four world cup appearances but the sports writer is of the view that the midfielder should never be given a chance to play for the country.

Speaking to colleague journalists in an interview, Kwabena Yeboah said, “I want to be blunt here, there is absolutely no way that if I had the power I will ever invite Kelvin into the team. Even if he becomes a Ronaldo or Messi overnight he will never get a call up under my reign if I were in a position to make a judgment on him.

“We have to be very careful with some of these things. Donning the national shirt is not only about form but also about someone who has the commitment to play for the team, someone who is not opportunistic about the national team. We gave him the biggest platform in his career and he got an opportunity to play for AC Milan and after that contract he stabbed at the back and for four years decided to have nothing doing with the Black Stars.

“We called him for 2014 world cup and I think that was highly opportunistic. I still maintain that calling opportunistic Kelvin was a huge mistake by Kwesi Appiah. During the 2014 world cup he was one of the players who led the boycott that brought us the disgrace.

“Calling him into the team again is tantamount to telling the world we are a dumping ground and can be taken for granted. Recalling Kelvin will not promote patriotism and enhance the atmosphere in the Stars camp. He should never be called”. Kwabena Yeboah declared.
