KP Boateng: Ghana urged to consider ex-Barcelona midfielder’s return

KP Boateng: Ghana urged to consider ex-Barcelona midfielder’s return

Former Black Stars defender, Dan Quaye has urged Ghana national team officials to bolster the current squad with more experienced players, mentioning Hertha Berlin attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng among his ideal candidates.

Dan Quaye believes the addition of the Hertha Berlin ace to the Black Stars will be good for their chances of reaching Qatar.


The Black Stars are one of 10 teams to have reached the third and final phase of the Africa zone qualifiers after beating South Africa to top Group G.


The play-offs are set for March next year, but the West Africans are yet to know their showdown opponents as the phase draw is still outstanding.
“The playoffs will not be easy because the remaining teams are difficult.

Truth be told, our performance in the Group stage was low and we only pray to get a good draw. The coach must sharpen the team before the play-offs,” Quaye, a member of Ghana’s team at the 2006 World Cup, told Aben FM.


“I believe this is the time the team needs experienced players. I will be happy if the coach invites Jonathan Mensah, Harrison Afful, John Boye, Frank Acheampong and Kevin-Prince Boateng back into the team. I want their inclusion because they have tasted the qualifiers before and will not struggle.


“It’s seems we are joking because depending solely on the young ones won’t help us. African football is different from that of Europe, Kamaldeen Sulemana is a fantastic player and doing good in France but he has not been able to fit in well with the Black Stars because African football is more aggressive as compared to European game”, he said.


“At the moment we need more experienced players to be able to qualify.”
Boateng last turned out for Ghana during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
