Kevin-Prince Boateng mocked in the German media after his brother Jerome won the World Cup

Published on: 16 July 2014
Kevin-Prince Boateng

German media took time to count the number of attacks Kevin Prince Boateng made on the team ahead of the World Cup, in what is seen as a direct slap on the face of the Ghana star.

Kevin’s first attack was boldly captured “Germany has no leaders and characters to deal with this pressure."

This statement before the World Cup provoked a lot of people in the German national team.

But just four weeks after this last comment, his younger brother made him eat a humble pie by helping Germany bring home their fourth World Cup title becoming the first European team to triumph on South American soil.

Kevin himself saw his World Cup come to an end after a 2-2 draw with Germany in the second Group G game.

The Schalke 04 player was expelled from Ghana’s camp for allegedly insulting head coah Kwesi Appiah.

    All, please sober up. Germany, America, etc all the great nations have citizens who sacrifice for their national pride when they are involved in national duties be it football, working at a ministry or anything for love of country. In Ghana all we know is who has what and so on. We never talk about nation as a prize possession for all the citizens of the country, yet we all are all always quick to compare Ghana to USA, Britain, please take the time to read their history and see how they sacrificed to get where the are now. Until the citizens of Ghana wean themselves from greed and selfishness the country will not prosper until thy kingdom come. God Bless Ghana.

    I guess leadership means attacking your own coaches and sitting on a beach in Brazil while your teammates are still fighting to beat Portugal? Thank God Germany has no freaks like that on their team! There are other players in the world that would give everything to be in a World Cup just once. But these Black Stars only seemed to care about being paid. Stay home next time! Why do you guys even bother qualifying?

    Maybe its Ghana (i.e. not Germany as they proved Kevin wrong by winning the world cup) that has no leaders and characters to DEAL with this pressure and that is why we had so many problems in our camp leading to our exit in the group stages.

    KPB spoke his mind and l don't see the arrogance in that.ln the case of the black stars, if it is not for clueless ex-rotten footballer turned coach,coupled with money laundering GFA,we could have won this world cup easily. Ghanaian mentality if you stand up for yourself you are arrogant and will go to hell if you allow yourself to be cheated and trod upon ,you are humble and will go to heaven. KPB is not arrogant, it is the GFA and our technical staff who are arrogant ,crooks,selfish ,thieves hence our predicament.

    our primitive orientation as Ghanaians came to light on the world stage much to the embarrassment of us all. i will not countenance the bad behaviour of the some of the players but the fact remains that plsyers are entitled to appearance fees which govts are supposed to pay before the tournament only tp be reimbursed by fifa. Player motivation matters and Ghana ought to have paid the money even before our first match but our primitive orientation will not allow the powers that be to pay promptly by bank transfer so we had to wait for player agitation before airlifting 3million dollars in this day and age? A ghanaian works in the civil service for 30 yrs and has to chase and fight for several years before pension funds are paid and even then are middle men who take a huge chunk of the money before payment.A contractor spends so much money and payment is delayed and by the time govt pays the contractor,inflation would have devalued the money paid .kp boateng was born in Germany-a country that is principled enough to pay appearance fee without rancour or agitation.whilst we criticise the players,we must also deal with our primitive,provincial orientation

    People have forgotten that Kevin made those remarks for the love he has for Ghana. In any case, why must people expect him to say Germany is gonna win the World Cup when Ghana is in the same group with them. Surprisingly, people are comparing Jerome to Kevin claiming because Jerome is humble he has made Ghana proud bla bla bla. In life, smart people make it. Jerome made a smartest decision in his footballing career by committing himself to Ghana. It's funny that Ghanaians are crucifying Kevin and singing praise to Jerome, the one who rejected Ghana. How many bloggers here would have committed themselves to play for Ghana if u were Kevin? I believe none will do that. Welbeck, Mario all turned their back on Ghana. Kevin has paid his dues. That dude loves Ghana even more than people here who always rain insults at him. Anyone who associates himself with Ghana will get ridiculed. Kevin made a wrong move by playing for Ghana. We saw is performance in South Africa. He passed his first test for Ghana. A clueless coach couldn't manage him well to bring the best in him out.
