Kevin Prince Boateng still has a chance to play for Ghana but must first apologise, says coach Appiah

Ghana coach Kwasi Appiah admits new Barcelona signing Kevin Prince Boateng is doing well and stands a chance of returning to the Black Stars should he apologise for his unruly behaviour during Ghana’s 2014 World Cup campaign in Brazil.

Boateng is currently serving an indefinite suspension from the Black Stars after being found guilty of “vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah”.

But, there have been calls for the ban to be lifted after Boateng stunned the world by joining Barcelona.

Coach Appiah admits Boateng is a Ghanaian and stands a chance of playing in the team but must first apologise.

“Kevin Prince Boateng is a Ghanaian and currently he is playing very well and if you look at our striking options we have always relied on Gyan so is about time we all check and get at least four strikers that we can always rely on,” Appiah told Asempa FM.

“Kevin is one of the good strikers as I have said, but in Brazil, he[Kevin] and Sulley were suspended by the FA for their unruly behaviours and I think Sulley has written a letter to apologise and looking at how Kevin is playing now, if he should write a letter to apologise, I will invite him because it is about the country not about any individual.”

Kevin has been capped 15 times by Black Stars and has scored two goals since his debut against Latvia in 2010.

He could make his debut for Barcelona against Sevilla in Copa del Rey on Wednesday.
