Kwabena Yeboah kicks against KP Boateng's return to the Black Stars

President of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Kwabena Yeboah has kicked against suggestions by a section of Ghanaians calling for Kevin Prince Boateng's inclusion into the Black Stars.

The 31-year-old is under indefinite suspension from national duties, he was sacked from camp alongside Sulley Muntari during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil after it was alleged that he verbally assaulted head coach James Kwesi Appiah.

KP Boateng last Monday night completed a shock transfer from Sassuolo to the Spanish giants Barcelona, becoming the first Ghanaian and 14th African in the Catalan club's rich history.

He joined on a 6-month loan with an option to buy for 8 million euros.

The move has necessitated calls for him to be included in the National team set up as the Black Stars prepares to break a 37 jinx at AFCON 2019.

This Kwabena Yeboah, as affectionately called "the writer" believes, it is not a wise move as the player in question is an opportunist who only decides to play in tournaments that are favourable to him.

He, however, sent a note of caution to coach Kwesi Appiah that, although football centres on togetherness, he should not make a mistake of inviting the Barcelona signee.

"People forget that if you constituting a team, it is not about how best you can play alone but you need collective discipline. There is no way I would say Kevin Prince Boateng should be called upon again".

"Sulley Muntari has always been faithful to the National team but has never turned his back on us, perhaps his temperament will be the problem. However, I will vouch for Sulley Muntari and forgo K.P Boateng." Kwabena Yeboah said on Joy FM.

The Dzamefe Commission of enquiry proposed that Sulley and Boateng be invited into the Black Stars if they apologize for their conduct at Brazil 2014.

Sulley Muntari has issued an apology but Kevin Prince Boateng is yet to.
