Ghana international forward, Kevin-Prince Boateng, says he made the right choice by representing Ghana at the international level.
The Barcelona player was on Sky Italia where he was asked about his international career. Boateng was, in 2009, eligible to play for Germany, his country of birth, and Ghana, his father's country.
The 31-year-old chose Ghana over Germany and says he never regrets picking the African country despite being suspended by the national team over the 2014 World Cup debacle.
Boateng was quoted as saying: "I did some things when I was young, of course, I'm not very proud of today. Although they are part of me, they were not very positive.
In Germany, there are many "straight", very correct, and they did not much like my behaviour. So I saw the really long way to get into Löw's plans, so I said to myself."
The ex-Spurs, Milan and Pompey player continued: "They want me in Ghana and I want to play for the national team. I had never felt like Ghana before, and I thought that was a good possibility, both personally and mentally.
To choose, I relied a lot on myself, on my feelings, because for my heart it was a choice that could be very right. And in the end I made a very right choice ."
After the World Cup of 2014 in Brazil, Boateng and other players were suspended from the national team for misbehaviour. Boateng is yet to apologise for the offence.
Meanwhile, Black Stars coach, Kwesi Appiah, has indicated that he may hand Kevin-Prince Boateng a recall to the national team should the attacker apologise for the 2014 debacle.
Commenting on Ghana’s lack of striking options at the moment, the 58-year-old said his doors are open to every Ghanaian player, including Boateng.
