Besiktas forward Kevin-Prince Boateng has confirmed holding a discussion with Ghana coach CK Akonnor but insists they “didn’t really speak a lot about a return to the Black Stars”.
The disclosure came hours after Akonnor told a press briefing on Tuesday that the player was not open to a return to the national team six years after he was suspended indefinitely.
In a response to a fan on Wednesday, Boateng stated that Akonnor was the best man for the Ghana coaching job but they did not broach the subject of a return during their discussions.
He posted: “…no journalist ever talked to me!! I spoke to coach akonnor and I think he is the best man for ghana right now,we had a great conversation!! We didn’t really speak a lot about me returning to the black stars…”
Born to a German mother and a Ghanaian father in Berlin, the attacker switched international allegiance to represent the Black Stars at the 2010 World Cup after representing the European nation’s youth outfits.
He shortly retired from international duty after the tournament in South Africa before making a return for the 2014 World Cup where he was sacked from the team’s camp for insubordination towards the then coach, Kwasi Appiah.
The former Portsmouth star has made 15 appearances and scored two goals for the four-time African champions.
