Schalke director, Hors Heldt, cannot see Kevin-Prince Boateng playing for his country again after he was sent home alongside Ghana team-mate Sulley Muntari. 

This report comes from the Daily Mail after Boateng was sent home after a heated confrontation with Ghana head coach, James Kwesi Appiah who consequently sent him home from Brazil.

His team mate, Muntari was also sent home from the World Cup after allegedly attacking a team official. 

Heldt told the German newspaper, Bild: "I cannot really imagine him playing for Ghana again." 

He continued by saying that the midfielder will be motivated to prove a point when he returns to the club. 

"I'm certain this World Cup and his suspension is not going to burden him," he added. "In fact, anybody who knows Boateng will know that he will actually be even more motivated by the whole thing."

According to the statements that the Ghana Football Association released, the attacking midfielder targeted vulgar verbal insults at his manager and he showed no remorse for his actions. 

The decision to fly both the players home from the tournament came on the same day that Ghana were eliminated from the tournament. In their final group game against Portugal, Appiah's men required a win in hope that Germany would beat the USA, opening the door for them and the second qualifying place. 

Despite the USA losing 2-1, Ghana were unable to get the result they required as they lost 2-1 with the winner coming from Cristiano Ronaldo - his only goal of the tournament. 

The Black Stars were unable to follow their performance at the last World Cup in South Africa where they made it to the quarter-finals and were unlucky not to reach the semi-finals. Luis Suarez played the villain after handling the ball on the line - denying Ghana a winning goal in the final minute of extra time. They then lost the following penalty shoot-out.

Suarez played a pivitol role for the Uruguayans at the last competition but he will no longer feature for his side this time after being handed a four month ban from football which rules him out of the rest of the tournament. 

For the third time in his career, he appeared to bite Giorgio Chiellini in the box in their 1-0 win against Italy which sent them through. He has released a statement following his punishment where he implies that he has been unfairly treated after he claims to have lost his balance and fell on the defender's shoulder. 

This will continue to cause a stir for the rest of the tournament. It was probably best for the Liverpool man to stay quiet and take his punishment like the Ghana pair.
