Spain-based attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng says he was not guilty of any wrongdoing at the 2014 World Cup and wants to return to the Ghana national team.
Boateng was expelled from the Black Stars’ camp at the last World Cup ahead of their final group stage match against Portugal.
The attacker was alleged to have used abusive language toward then coach Kwesi Appiah and was indefinitely banned from the national team by Ghana’s FA.
Boateng insists that he did nothing wrong and was the victim of persecution by the administrators.
“There were people who had a problem with me,” he told CCTV Africa News.
“I don’t know for what reason. They had their reason but they made them up. I think it was not the right decision that they kicked me out.”
The 29-year-old has been in fine form for new Spanish club Las Palmas and talks of a return to the Black Stars have begun to circulate. Boateng says he would welcome the opportunity to play in another World Cup.
“It is for every player a big dream to play a World Cup. If there would be a chance to play a third World Cup I would not say no,” said Boateng, who featured for the Black Stars in 2010 and 2014.
“There are not a lot of players who can say they played in three World Cups. But before this we have a lot of talks because I don’t want to go back with a bad spirit. If I would go back, I want everything to be perfect so we can work perfect together.”
