Ghana coach Charles Akonnor has revealed having a conversation with Kevin-Prince Boateng over a return to Black Stars but the attacker is not ready to play. 

Boateng has not played for Black Stars since he was sacked from camp after allegedly insulting then coach Kwesi Appiah during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. 

CK Akonnor announced his first Ghana squad on Tuesday ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan.

After announcing the squad, Akonnor was asked about the Besiktas forward and he responded: “For Prince Boateng, we spoke. I don’t think he wants to play for the Black Stars again. I don’t think so.”

The 32-year-old has been capped 15 times by Ghana, scoring two goals.
