Kevin Boateng set to write to GFA revoking retirement
The Ghana Football Association(GFA) is hopeful of receiving a letter from Ghana midfielder Kevin Prince Boateng officially on reversing his international retirement from the Black Stars.
Kevin Boateng has already made know his availability for the Black Stars after leaving the team in 2010, but until now the AC Milan player is yet to officially notify the Ghana FA even though he has been in contact with coach Kwasi Appiah.
According to the Ghana Football Association spokesperson Ibrahim Saanie Daara Kevin Boateng is keen on officially writing to them on his availability for Ghana's crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia next month.
The Ghana Football Association international relations manager Mr. Alex Asante spoke to Kevin about it, he was in America and promised he was going to write it," he told Joy sports.
"Kevin knew he had to officially write a letter announcing his return even before he spoke to GFA President Kwasi Nyantakyi so we should expect him to do that in the coming days.
Meanwhile Ibrahim Saanie Daara also added that the Ghana Football Association has asked Prince Boateng's AC Milan team mate Sulley Muntari to officially render an apology to Coach Kwasi Appiah and the playing body or risk missing out on the Zambia game.
Muntari has still not apologized to the coach and his team mates in the wake of his public attack on the coach when he was substituted in the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Lesotho in June.
The midfielder himself confirmed in an interview with Joy sports that he confronted the coach after he was substituted during the match.
But Ghana FA spokesperson Saanie insists he will not be considered for future games if he fails to apologize.
“As has been said consistently and to Sulley himself that he did something that the coach thought it was not respectful and undermines team's spirit and the coach's authority before the players in the dressing room against Lesotho, he was told that there was something he must do to be considered for future matches,”
“That was made clear to Sulley a day after the game in no uncertain terms that he must do the right and decent thing to the coach because the coach has a position which is until a clear apology comes from Sulley to him and the team Sulley will not be considered for future matches.”
