Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng recently joined European giants, Barcelona, in a loan deal that could be extended depending on the performance of the veteran of two FIFA World Cups.
Naturally, the transfer move made by Boateng has generated a lot of debate among football loving Ghanaians about what use the player is of to the ambitions of the Ghana national team.
Boateng has not played for Ghana since 2014 and when head coach Kwesi Appiah was asked about the 31-year-old's Barcelona move, he had this to say:
Kevin is one of the good strikers as I have said, but in Brazil, he[Kevin] and Sulley were suspended by the FA for their unruly behaviours.
I think Sulley has written a letter to apologise and looking at how Kevin is playing now, if he should write a letter to apologise, I will invite him because it is about the country not about any individual.”
So YEN.com.gh asked readers via Facebook, what they made of the assessment of Black Stars' coach Appiah. We did well to gather the responses that were most representative of the overall sentiments shared.
Jon Lipido seems like a person who has no time for the managers of the national team. The user posted "take ur [sic] black star oooo".
Collins Manu wondered why Boateng has to apologise. Manu continued: "massa if the person is good to play just call him and stop all rant about apologies".
Another Facebook user, Livingstone Tengey actually pleaded with the player not to bother coming over to represent Ghana ever again.
Alexander Ofori, the last of our samples, had a more sober tone but still in the spirit of the others. The Facebook user posted: "Let bygones be bygones. The whole brazil thing was a real disgrace on both sides".
From the abaove, it would seem Ghanaians are not bothered about the Kevin-Prince Boateng making any apologies to the nation.
They would either love to see him or not at all without an apology.
