Bashir Hayford questions calls for Kevin-Prince Boateng's Black Stars return
Black Queens coach Bashir Hayford has questioned calls for Kwesi Appiah to recall Kevin-Prince Boateng back to the Black Stars.
Boateng, 31, last featured for Ghana's senior national team at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
The Sassuolo forward was sacked the camp of the Black Stars during the tournament for showing insubordination.
But following Ghana's 1-0 defeat against the Harambee Stars of Kenya last Saturday, a section of Ghanaian football advocates have called on coach Kwesi Appiah to recall the former AC Milan ace back to the national team.
However, coach Hayford has frowned on those calls, claiming that the team does not need him.
"Why should Kevin-Prince Boateng be given a call-up to the Black Stars?" he quizzed.
"I don't understand why that guy should be given a call-up to the national team.
He further called on Ghanaians to stop mounting pressure on Kwesi Appiah after Ghana's defeat to Kenya.
"Ghanaians should stop putting pressure on Kwesi Appiah because he [Kwesi Appiah] believes in his current team," he told Aseda FM.
