Kevin-Prince Boateng has his say

JOKING AROUND: Kevin-Prince Boateng

THERE HAS been more negative stories arising from the Ghana camp following their exit from the World Cup in Brazil and the indefinite suspension of both Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Boateng has publicly contradicted the Ghana FA's statement about the events surrounding their indiscipline. The organisation said he had directed 'vulgar verbal abuse' at manager, Kwesi Appiah and that Muntari had physically assaulted a member of the management team. This contrasts greatly with the description of events from the Schalke player.

“There was an incident at practice yesterday,' Boateng told SportBild. “Sulley Muntari and I were joking around after a one-on-one. We both started laughing. The coach immediately stopped practice and asked why we were laughing.”

He added: “We said that everything was okay and he sent us to the locker room. I went to the coach after practice and asked whether I could talk to him for a minute.

“I asked him what he had against me, then he started shouting at me. He also insulted me. He said things like “f*** off”. I heard about the suspension (on Thursday morning and) I accept it.”

This is just the latest scandal to surround the Black Stars squad after suggestions they would strike if they did not receive their $3million appearance bonuses prior to the final group game against Portugal.
