Kevin Prince-Boateng quits Ghana

AC Milan and Ghana midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng has quit international football in order to focus on his fitness for his club.

Prince-Boateng, 24, is a former German youth international who was born to a Ghanaian father and German mother. After much controversy, he opted to play for Ghana in time for the 2010 World Cup and starred as the side reached the quarter-finals of the competition.

However, having helped Milan to win the Serie A title in 2010-11, he has now chosen to focus his attentions on his Italian club.

A statement read: ''The Ghana Football Association has received a letter from player Kevin Prince-Boateng on his decision to resign from the senior national team, the Black Stars.

''According to Kevin, the physical demands of playing for both club and country at high levels are taking a toll on his health.

''The player also explained that in order to remain healthy and stay off any injuries, he has consulted his doctors and family over the matter and has decided to take the decision to excuse himself from national duties since he is on a special training that he has to interrupt to honour national invitations.

''The Ghana Football Association is yet to take a position on the decision of Kevin Prince Boateng.''
