Former Black Stars management committee member, Yaw Boateng Gyan has revealed that Kevin Prince Boateng is prepared and ready to play for the senior national team, the Black Stars.

The former Barcelona and AC Milan man has been out of the West Africans' set-up since copping an indefinite suspension during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

He was punished for insulting then head coach James Kwasi Appiah and has been asked to render a public apology before being considered for national team selection again.

A presidential commission of enquiry set up to investigate Ghana's controversial World Cup campaign in Brazil has advised that Boateng never be called up to the Black Stars again.

Boateng, meanwhile, has been adamant about rendering an apology as he insists on his innocence.

But according to Mr Gyan, who is a former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the Fiorentina forward is ready to return to the Black Stars only if h would fit into the system of Coach CK Akonnor.

"Kevin Prince Boateng is ready to play for the Black Stars if Coach CK Akonnor thinks he can fit into his tactics," he told Elmina based Ahomka FM.

"I always tell KP Boateng that, discipline is very important in football," he added.

Born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother in the city of Berlin, Boateng switched international allegiance to represent Ghana at the 2010 World Cup, having played for the Europeans at various youth levels.

He called time on his international career shortly after helping Ghana reach the quarter-final of the global showpiece in South Africa but rescinded his decision at the climax of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

The former Borussia Dortmund, Tottenham Hotspur and Fiorentina attacker has played 15 times for Ghana, scoring twice.

He netted his debut goal against the USA during the 2010 World Cup.
