Kevin Prince Boateng can make a U-turn: GFA
February 19, 2013, 00:11 GMT
The Ghana Football Association has implied that retired Kevin-Prince Boateng will be re-admitted into the Black Stars if he is interested in playing again.
The AC Milan ace stepped down from the Ghana national team in November 2011 citing health reasons to focus on his club.
That decision angered a lot Ghanaians who were of the opinion that the former Portsmouth star used the Black Stars to resurrect his club career.
The former Germany youth international switched nationality in 2010 and was approved by FIFA to play for the Black Stars at the World Cup finals in South Africa the same year.
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah held unsuccessful talks with the AC Milan player to convince him to rescind his decision.
Boateng watched all of Ghana’s matches at the Nations Cup and often took to micro-blogging website Twitter to congratulate the team after winning matches.
His action has been interpreted as a cunning move to convince authorities about his renewed interest in playing for the Black Stars again.
The Ghana FA says it will not shut the door on the midfielder if he makes a big U-turn.
“We have not received any correspondence whether in writing or oral from any player,” Ghana FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi revealed.
“The FA has not barred anybody so if any Ghanaian player meets the criteria, we will welcome them.”
Ghana next assignment is a 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Sudan in Kumasi on March 24.
