Kelvin was very influential in the Black Stars line up, whenever he plays they feel relaxed in midfield because of his confident level and intelligence he has showcase in the past. The 2010 World Cup saw the best out of the player to get him a better place to in the world which propel him to join big clubs in the Serie A, Spanish La-Liga and others from Portsmouth. This shows why he was willing to play for Ghana and not Germany. He wants to establish himself as the best in that peculiar position to sell his craft.
"I don't feel German at all, even though I was accepted in Germany. I realized that my character and my principle didn't suit them and vice-versa. So I made the choice to play for Ghana, and it was the best decision I ever made in my life. I wanted to go to my country, to see my people proud of my decision" Kelvin-Prince Boateng. After a glittering performance at the 2010 World Cup, Boateng called time on his international career before making a comeback just in time for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
At the tournament, he fell out with coach James Kwasi Appiah, leading to his suspension from camp on the morning of Ghana's third group game. The Besiktas and former Barcelona man has not been called up again for national duty since the incident in Brazil. Kevin-Prince Boateng stands by decision to choose Ghana over Germany. German-born Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng reveals he chose to represent the Black Stars ahead of the country of birth because his character did not fit the Europeans.
Consultation is very good for every player but has to be done professionally, when Kelvin decided to ask from the correct source he went to a country that has been overtaken by foreigner in their national teams (Germany and France). Kelvin, knows Henry to be a French man and have nothing to do with Germany but to prevent a conflict of interest, he decided to ask him and he gave him the best of choice which is very reasonable for more than a decade now. Kudos to the French and Arsenal legend for gifting Ghana with such an advice. Kelvin-Prince Boateng has revealed in an interview with legendary Thiery Henry that his decision to choose Ghana without waiting for Germany was because he realised his chances of getting a place in the four times champions of the world was very slim. And he added that playing for Ghana is of the best decisions he has ever made in his football career."When you are young, even though I was born in German, you don't really know who you are. Football came and opened the doors for Germany and I was proud that I was going to play for Germany".
