Ex-Ghana defender, Frimpong Manso, has backed national team coach Kwesi Appiah’s decision not to select Barcelona player Kevin-Prince Boateng for the 2019 Afcon unless the player apologises for his misconduct and insubordination at a previous tournament.

Speaking after Ghana’s 3 – 1 win over Mauritania in an international friendly on Tuesday, 26 March 2019, Kwesi Appiah reiterated that there was no chance for the Barcelona attacker to be part of his squad for failing to publicly apologise to him for his verbal abuse at the 2014 World Cup.

This decision is supported by Frimpong Manso, who explained in an interview with Class 91.3FM that: “After the Brazil World Cup, it was the [Dzamefe] Commission who said we shouldn’t invite him and Sulley Muntari, although Muntari came out to apologise, he [Prince Boateng] never did”.

“He is now in Barcelona. Does it mean everything has changed? No! He is the same player. I think he was even playing better at Sassuolo than what he can do at Barcelona. Even at that time, nobody talked about him coming to the squad [Black Stars]. All of a sudden, he is in Barcelona and people are talking about it. He is a good player alright, but I think we don’t have to invite him,” he stated.
