The Fulham midfielder has dispelled any doubts about him retiring from the Black Stars after gaining fame as it happened in the case of AC Milan's Kevin-Prince Boateng

Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has assured Black Stars fans that the thought of him quitting the national team after gaining nationality switch has never crossed his mind, adding he will be around for a longer period.

Frimpong’s assurance comes after Ghana was stunned by Kevin-Prince Boateng’s retirement from international football earlier in November 2011, just 18 months after making his debut for the Black Stars.

Boateng’s decision was even more surprising to Ghanaian football fans especially after excelling with the Black Stars at the 2010 World Cup which helped him to secured a bumper cash move to the Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.

However, Frimpong has allayed all fears calling Ghanaian fans to keep calm.

"I don't know Kevin-Prince Boateng, but him and I are two different people. I don't know why Kevin did what he did but unlike him I was born in Ghana, I speak Twi so no way I’m going to turn my back on Ghana," Frimpong told Ghana.

The on-loan Arsenal player who got his debut call-up under head coach Kwesi Appiah is in line to make his Ghana debut on Sunday when the four-time Africa champions take on Sudan in a 2014 World Cup qualifier at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
