Choosing Ghana over Germany was a right choice - KP Boateng

The 31-year-old attacker has no remorse about ditching Germany at the senior level.

Barcelona forward Kevin-Prince Boateng says he has not regretted switching his international allegiance from Germany to Ghana.

Boateng decided to play for the Black Stars of Ghana ahead of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

He was sacked from the national team's camp during his second World Cup appearance in Brazil by the head coach Kwasi Appiah after a gross of misconduct.

“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." he told Skysports Italia’s The Lord of Football show.

"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,”

“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 “.

Boateng was born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother in Berlin.
