Last Warning For Kelvin – Prince Boateng

Kelvin prince BoatengBlack Stars’ management committee member Yaw Boateng Gyan has warned Kevin-Prince Boateng that he should consider himself out of the 2104 World Cup if he refuses to turn up for the second-leg of the playoff against Egypt this month.

The statement by one of the leading members of the Ghana FA, who is a distant relative of the midfielder, highlights the suspicion surrounding the Germany-based player’s recent injuries just before Ghana matches.

The Schalke star is yet to make a playing return for the Black Stars since renouncing his premature decision to retire from international football.

He has now been handed an ultimatum to win over confidence of the coach, teammates and the fans in the second leg playoff game against Egypt otherwise consider himself out of the World Cup once Ghana seals qualification.

“There is no such player only cut for qualification and others only for tournament,” Boateng Gyan – a relative of the Schalke forward told Metro FM.

“It is a collective effort and therefore if he [Boateng] keeps turning down invites to play with the other players during the qualification series including this last match then I think that will be it.

“We have done our best and yes, he is my relative but the truth of the matter is that if he keeps up with this attitude of not turning up for games then he better count himself out of the World Cup.”

Yaw Boateng Gyan who is an uncle of the player, was instrumental in convincing the Germany-born player to return to the Black Stars following his premature retirement.
