KP Boateng should change his mentality if ... - Laryea Kingston
Ex-Blacks Stars winger Laryea Kingston this week waded into the Kevin Prince Boateng debate of whether he should be given an opportunity to return to the Senior National Team.
According to the former Hearts of Oak player, KP Boateng should be handed a call up only if he is willing to sacrifice for the nation just as others do.
“He should change his mentality before being included in the team, he is a Ghanaian and if he is performing well and playing regularly in his team and the coach believes he can fit into his system, that fine,” Laryea told Asempa FM.
“He needs to be talked to that you don’t select games you prefer to feature in.”
“Kevin is a fantastic player if he puts his mind on the national team that he is going to help us by not using the country, trust me he is a player that will help us.”
KP Boateng the globetrotter made a surprise move to La Liga giants Barcelona on 21 January 2019 on loan until the end of the 2018–19 season, with the club holding an option to sign him permanently for €8 million.
He joined the Catalan side to serve as a backup for Luis Suárez.
But ever since he joined he has had limited opportunities for the Catalans playing a paltry 123 minutes.
The 31-year-old was part of Ghana's squad for the 2010 and 2014 World Cup.
