Kevin-Prince Boateng

Midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has denied insulting head coach Kwesi Appiah but says he accepts his expulsion from Ghana’s World Cup camp.

The Schalke 04 man claims the trainer misunderstood him after laughing with Sulley Muntari, who has also been sacked for violent behavior.

“I accept the absolutely - only that no one should believe that I had insulted the coach or something let me come to debt,” Boateng told Sport Bild.

“I am leaving camp and I wish my colleagues all the best for the World Cup and the match against Portugal. "

A statement on the Ghana FA website read: “The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has approved coach Kwesi Appiah’s decision to suspend Kevin-Prince Boateng indefinitely from the Black Stars.

“The decision takes immediate effect.

“The decision was taken following Boateng’s vulgar verbal insults targeted at coach Kwesi Appiah during the team’s training session in Maceio this week.

“Boateng has since showed no remorse for his actions which has resulted in the decision.

“Boateng’s accreditation for the 2014 World Cup has been withdrawn with immediate effect.”

    i said it that confusion is coming to the stars due to some outside element controlling the management. is not only Prince & Muntari but many of them are not happy at the stars camp but they are not showing. They should let the main confusion boy is still at large because he is being protect by some group. God help us to silence the main bad boy out. This man k.P. Boateng has done nothing wrong but He Appiah must be and be sack. Appiah must go.

    Whatever transpired will come out eventually. Whatever happened I hope the fall out should be very, very big, and should shake the very foundation of Ghana football. Obviously a lot heads must roll, otherwise we shall be back to square one!

    Appiah should have done better than this. Sending two of your key players away is not clever at all. Muntari and KPB always give their all for Ghana.

    Some of us kept saying this guy should never have been allowed back into the team due to his incorrigible behavior; but some loud mouth ignorant people on this forum insulted us for saying so. Now see what has happened?

    Why is the Black Stars being coached by an Ashanti who lacks the propensity to coach or learn. It has been shown over and over that they are not the type to be handed authority to do anything. They are prone to tribalism, nepotism, cronyism and bribery This Akwesi Appiah and his sponsor Nyantakyi need to be removed from GFA. To hand the image of Ghana to a corruptible, uneducated and douche bag is uncalled for unless a financial arrangement has been made between them. When it comes to the national team we need smart individuals like Sillas Tetteh, Kuuku Dadzie or a foreigner to run it and not Plantain eaters.

    You see what happens. All the frustration caused by Coach Appiah "tactics" and disregarding the "non local" players has reached a boiling point. Useless coach could not properly lead and doomed the team.

    Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda, Dauda…….wasa papapapapapa…….akoa yi asa o —-yet, akwasi says “he is number one”! Yeah….we are witnesses …ladies and gentlemen! Enough said! Akwasi Appiah shouldn’t even get home before they give him his sack letter! The most abysmal and shambolic performance by Ghana ever….since 2006! And it was spearheaded by a “local”, “home bred”, useless and clueless coach! Twiaaaa……that’s what u get from Africa —-so talented yet not enough brains to go with the talent or manage the talent! Akwasi Appiah has no tactical brains —and the players are not happy about him —and if the foolish GFA cannot see, then everyone of them must go! PUNKS! Akwasi Appiah must go! Technical team overhauled! When a coach is tactically n technically bankrupt, players don't respect him! Before the world cup, Appiah, who has only won once in 7 games against opposition outside Africa, said he was gona shock d world ---and he just did! yes, the most shambolic performance in Ghana history!
