Playing for Black Stars always a priority – In-form Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom

In-form Red Star Belgrade striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom says playing for the Black Stars remains a top priority.

The 24-year-old believes ”national team football is a worthwhile national service which feels priceless to every player”.

Boakye has recaptured his scoring form in Eastern Europe where he has netted 8 goals in 11 matches and two assists within six weeks.

Asked about his national team intentions, he replied: ”My intention has always been to succeed at my club which should naturally translate into national duty calls.

”If I get the chance to return to the Black Stars I’ll gladly accept it but, my focus now is on helping Crvena Zvedza [the other name for Red Star Belgrade] win silverware to qualify for the Champions League proper next season.”

Boakye’s last goal for the Black Stars was in the Congo-Ghana friendly in Brazzaville in September 2015.

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at GhanaNation.com. I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
