Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah, has said that Barcelona forward Kevin-Prince Boateng could return for Ghana’s 2019 AFCON campaign, provided he issues an apology.
As widely reported during and after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Boateng had a rather nasty fallout with Appiah that led to the Barca forward’s immediate expulsion from the Black Stars team since that day, including fellow foward Sulley Muntari.
“This issue has got to do with the white paper of the Dzamefe Commission," Appiah said on Ghana Soccer Net.
“They were asked to apologize to the nation before they can be invited to the national team.
Appiah, who's also a former Black Stars footballer, further acknowledged Boateng's quality.
“I have said that he is a good player because when I took over he was playing for Sassuolo.
I have also said that if he takes the step to apologize I will have the opportunity to invite him. Then he can play for all Ghanaians to assess him to see if he can help us or not.
“If this isn’t done earlier and we finish playing all our games before the Afcon then it will be very difficult to give him a call up,” concluded Appiah.
