FC Barcelona attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng says he made the right decision by choosing Ghana over Germany.
The 31-year-old pledged his allegiance to his native country over his country of birth in 2010.
Boateng, who had represented Germany at youth level switched to feature for Ghana at senior level when he played for the Africans at the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The former AC Milan star is currently out of the Black Stars team after a fallout with Coach Kwesi Appiah which has ultimately prevented him from playing for the former African Champions since 2014.
Despite the gap with the Ghanaian national team, the former Schalke O4 player does not regret his decision.
“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 behavior. So I saw the really long way to get into Löw’s plans, so I said to myself,” he told Skysports Italia’s The Lord of Football show.
“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 “.
Coach Kwesi Appiah has already hinted his plans to possible recall the player back to the team should he render an apology.
