There’s no doubt that I’ll like to play for Ghana. I’ll go direct. When they call me, I’ll go direct” he told omasports.com in an interview.

You know I was born and raised in Germany but I’m a black man. I’m from Ghana, so I have this Ghana heart still in me. I just feel attached although I wasn’t there for a long time. But when they’ll call me, I’ll go direct because I want to make the people there proud,” hhe mentioned. 

“I can name a lot of Ghanaian footballers. I follow them. The Ayew brothers. Sulley Muntari. I watched them all in the World Cup in 2006. Asamoah Gyan. Michael Essien. Because of Essien, most Ghanaians want to play for Chelsea. They’re like legends. Yes and my dad of course. Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah.

“And now in my generation, there are also lot of Ghanaian players who’ll like to play for Ghana also like Richmond Tachi, who plays for Dortmund second team. John Yeboah playing for Willem II in Holland”, he added.
