Africa football legend Abedi Ayew Pele has revealed AC Milan’s Kevin-Prince Boateng as his favourite player in the Italian Serie A following his impressive performances with the Rossoneri.
The 25-year-old has been on fire for his club ever since he joined them after the 2010 World Cup. He has registered 52 appearances and has 11 goals to his name.
Abedi believes that such a feat is worth commending because the German-born Ghanaian has been impressive at the Milan giants.
“He went there as a player that nobody considered that can top the Italian league and he has been able to prove himself and has proved to the club that he is one of the great players that the club can maintain and can look forward to,” the three-time Africa Player of the Year told Goal.com. “I’m happy that he is a Ghanaian and has been able to achieve all that.”
Boateng has quit international football because he claims he finds it difficult committing to both club and country due to the workload involved. However, it is generally believed by Ghanaians that the main reason for his premature retirement from national duty was due to a row with former Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic.
Abedi has called on Ghana authorities to put aside all egos to meet the player and reconsider his decision because his sterling performances could help the Black Stars to do better in future tournaments.
“We need him. We don’t have to be arrogant. You must have some managerial skill to be able to manage certain difficult players in the team because when you have a group you always have difficult people in the group and it’s up to you the manager to bring them together and bring success to your country,” he advised.
“So it all comes to managerial skills because you can be good on the ground as fantastic tactician, but you must have managerial skill to bring egos together and turn it into a winning side. If people can really convince him to comeback it will help us in a great deal.”
