Kelvin Prince Boateng reveals why he decided to play for Ghana instead of Germany.

Ghanaian midfielder Kelvin Prince Boateng, who was born to a German mother but has a Ghanaian father, has disclosed in a recent interview why he decided to play Ghana ahead of Germany.

According to him, he made an evaluation and saw that playing for the 4 times world champions Germany will be difficult and he might never even get a call up hence his decision to play for Ghana.

He added that, playing for Ghana was one of the best decisions he has taken as a footballer because he has featured in 2 world cups 2010 and 2014 and also got a chance to see where he was from.

” When you are young, even though I was born in German, you don’t really know who you are,” he told Thierry Henry during Instagram chat.

“So that’s why a lot of have a lot of questions. I didn’t feel German 100% and I didn’t feel Ghanaian 100%. I was always in the middle. Football came and opened the doors for Germany and I was proud that I was going to play for Germany”.

“As I got older I kept my brain the way I was and I always said what I thought and it was not always welcome. So there came a time when I thought I was not going to make it with Germany, not because of my quality but because of character doesn’t fit.

“So I decided to play for Ghana and honestly it is one of the best of my career. To go home to see your roots and see a different culture and play two World Cups was amazing.
