Former Black Stars midfielder Laryea Kingston has said Kevin-Prince Boateng’s return to the team should be solely based on his level of performance with his club.
The Besiktas attacker has not played for the senior national team since he was sacked from the team’s camp during the 2014 World Cup for insubordination.
It is said that Kevin had used some vulgar speech on the then coach Kwasi Appiah leading to his dismissal.
The previous GFA administration insisted that Kevin apologises before being called-up.
In an Instagram Live chat with his younger brother, Jerome Boateng who played for Germany, Kevin admitted he didn’t like how he left the team but was hopeful for a second chance.
“With the national team, I didn’t like the way it ended because they gave me so much. But you never know, maybe I can go back and play one more time again,” Boateng said.
In response to Kevin on Saturday’s Joy Sports Link, Laryea left the fate in the hands of the coach Charles Akonnor but added that he should be invited on condition that he is doing well for his club.
“Kevin-Prince Boateng is still a Ghanaian. He still has a lot of respect for his country despite the issues that happened in the Black Stars,” he said.
“I think if the coach believes that Boateng has something to help him and he is performing then [he can call him]. What I want to see is players picked if they are doing well for their clubs.”
Laryea would have played with Kevin at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa had he not been dropped from the final squad.
