Kevin-Prince Boateng: 'Kwesi Appiah insulted me'

Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng accuses coach Kwesi Appiah of insulting him before sending him home from the World Cup in Brazil.

Kevin-Prince Boateng has accused Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah of insulting him ahead of his expulsion from the World Cup.

The midfielder and teammate Sulley Muntari were dismissed from the Ghana squad earlier today before the country's Football Association announced that they had both been suspended indefinitely.

Boateng, who plays for Schalke 04, told German magazine Sport-Bild: "Sulley Muntari and I were just joking around and the coach stopped the session and sent us back to the changing room.

"Afterwards I went to the him and asked what he had against me and he started yelling. He insulted me.

"No-one should think I insulted the coach. I'm travelling now and I wish my colleagues all the best for the match against Portugal."

Ghana need to beat Portugal this evening to give themselves a chance of reaching the last 16.

Ghana's Sulley Muntari takes on England midfielder Gareth Barry on March 29, 2011.
