Ghana's Kevin-Prince Boateng launches fresh attack on Germany, they are bottlers!

Published on: 06 June 2014
Kevin Prince Boateng says Germany will not make any meaningful impact at the World Cup

Ghana superstar Kevin-Prince Boateng has launched a fresh attack on his ex-country Germany accusing them of being bottlers on the big stage with the World Cup looming.

The Berlin-born midfielder last month branded his country of birth as a side that lacks the play-maker to win matches for the European side which angered many in Germany.

Now the Ghana international has turned-up the heat ahead of the Black Stars' clash with his country of birth at the World Cup finals later this month.

The Schalke midfielder insists Joachim Low's Germany side must make it to at least the final to be rated as a success in Brazil.

But he said: "I see an outstanding team, but whenever something is at stake they don't make the final step."

Ghana and Germany make up Group G - the group of death - alongside Portugal and the USA.

The two countries meet in Fortaleza on June 21.

Do you think Germany have got what it takes to win the World Cup? Is Boateng's right? Make your views in the box below:

    KPB looks more like a character in 'star trek',he talks too much,got tatooed too much,thinks his too much for Ghana,which explains why he only plays every four yrs for the national team!since i dont take him serious,those words he uttered against Germany,is only good for comic relief!...when next you here about him,some nutty white German junkies may give him the banana treatment at his club Schalke 04,i expect him to bravely eat the banana like Dani Alves did,without actually calling them 'white pigs'!

    KPB is doing everything possible to get the germans angry. It's a double edge sword though. He either gets under their skins and play on their minds or he will motivate them to play hard against Ghana and try very hard to us.

    To me thats also another way to gain his name and confidence back.but i bet he better behave if he wants to become the worlds best player one day.for they say if one throws stone at wall it turns back at him,and one living in a glass building should never throw stones.

    Kevin is right. I believe Germany is really not the team to watch at this world cup. I rather see a very strong African opposition. I strongly believe Germany will struggle to even qualify from the group stage. I know as a matter of fact that Germany will suffer a great deal in the hands of Ghana, Portugal and USA. The pressure is on them. So many many surprises will emerge at this world cup. i tip Ghana to get to the semi finals. Backward never, forward ever.

    This our Gharman. I was a bit concerned about KP's erratic behaviours during the Netherlands game. Persistently rushing around charging at, pushing and grabbing the Dutch players. I hope all is well with him and that his actions were just down to sheer enthusiasm. Otherwise, our Psychologist would need to keep a close eye on him to avoid losing him in the first game or two. KP will always have a love and hate relationship with his birth country. For a young black man; growing up in Europe has never been straight forward. When his path became crooked he did not get lost. rather he found his way home. The truth is, KP will always be a Gharman. He is super tough. talented and often speaks his mind. I don't think KP's comments would psych up the Germans any more than they already are. This is the group of death. The feeling is neutral. Personally, l believe Ghana has the personnel to battle any team in their group. The countries in our group are as worried as any Ghanaian should be. Nothing can be taken for granted. This is truly the group of death. Believe me no team in the group will sleep well, the night before they have to play Ghana. Go GH!!!!

    it is so easy to see kp's envy of the german team, he wishes to be in the german team so he can play the free role he so desires. no one should be fooled, the germans are a better side in terms of experience and tactical disposition. we don't need the germans focusing on us, we need them to see us as an ordinary team. psychologically we don't need a grudge with them so we can play openly with them, unfortunatley, kp is taking his envy too far and too dangerous for the black stars. if they focus on us, am not exagerating, we could be trashed. holland had the chance to trash us and left us of the hook, the germans finishing is much better. in a world cup, it is better your opponent thinks you are the underdog, so you can pool a surprise.

    Let him provoke them. Soccer is like boxing, provocation weakens the opponent psychologically. By these provocations, the opponent becomes more aggressive and a little frustration causes them to slag and loose eventually.

    This boy is still carrying a grudge against Germany for being snubbed due to his bad attitude. The German's are not like Africans who put up with all kinds of nonsense, and literally beg players to play for them. He should let his performance speak for itself on the field, if he really wanna settle a score with the Germans, and stop all the talking.

    KP I like your psychological game. The question they ask him, will warrant the answer he will give. KP is not mad man to be talking to himself about germany

    According to the match against Netherlands, Ghana is capable of beating any team, even Brazil, provided they can create chances and make use of them. Ghana started with youth players upfront and Netherlands has it full set of veteran players in top leagues, yet ball exchanges was equally balance. Getting to the end, when some veteran players of Ghana were introduced the ball was on the turf of Netherlands. This means punch to punch they were not better than GHANA. Compare that to Netherlands game against wales. Netherlands were in total control.

    First of Ghana, is boateng speaking as an individual or he is speaking collectively for bs! I don't really understand what is paining boateng about the German national team! Is he a Ghanaian or German disguised as a Ghanaian! If is even true that the German national team are CHOKERS when it matters most, is non of his business and the better thing for him to do is to PROVE IT on the field for all to see rather than always saying negative things about them! This is really uncall for and is high time someone tell him to shut up and FOCUS OON BRAZIL! The WC is not about only Germany but is about PLAYING 7 TOUGH MATCHES and all these talks will sip and destroy his energy and focus in the WC! Am yet to see any of the other great players talking BY HEART LIKE KPB! Some people ll say is mind games but some mind games can misfire and he better lie low! When Ronaldo won the golden boot in Germany 06, he said less pressure and less spotlight from the media help him to do well becasue in the previous wc,all the spotlight were on him and it affected his focus and I hope KPB IS LISTENING!

    Yes bro, i think he's a dreamer. He wish he was in the German Team, i guess. He's rather worrying GH Team with these wayward comments instead, he shd learn how to trap balls from long passes and make good use of them, just like what happened in the GH-Holland match. He needs to concentrate. Coach shd bench him if he continues like that. I don't want to believe that he's in to disrupt our Team. Some of us don't trust his dedication to the team in the past, anyway.
