Ghana ace retires

BYE: Kevin Prince Boateng bids goodbye to Ghana

MIDFIELDER Kevin Prince Boateng has retired from international football saying he wants to concentrate on AC Milan, it was announced today. The 24-year-old has informed the Ghana Football Association (GFA) of his decision to quit the Black Stars.

A GFA statement read: ''The Ghana Football Association has received a letter from player Kevin Prince-Boateng on his decision to resign from the senior national team, the Black Stars.

'According to Kevin, the physical demands of playing for both club and country at high levels are taking a toll on his health.

'The player also explained that in order to remain healthy and stay off any injuries, he has consulted his doctors and family over the matter and has decided to take the decision to excuse himself from national duties since he is on a special training that he has to interrupt to honour national invitations.

'The Ghana Football Association is yet to take a position on the decision of Kevin Prince Boateng.'

The former German youth international who was born to a Ghanaian father and German mother, switched nationality to play for the West African country just before last year's World Cup in South Africa.

He played just nine matches for the Black Stars and scored one goal.
