After the embarrasing 2-0 Bundesliga defeat to Cologne, Kevin-Prince Boateng was suspended indefinitely by Schakle 04 despite having two more years to run on is contract.
The Ghana international was sacked by the German club following his below-par performances and bad attitude.
Boateng told Sport Bild: “It is very sad, as my time is finished at Schalke. But this was not my decision,” he told German newspaper Sport Bild.
“From my side is not mudslinging. That I am now badly done in hindsight, still speaks for itself. The level of these people who tell you something about me and spread rumors, I did not do so. Unfortunately, the public must now know that everything that was transported to the media is a lie. “
Boateng had been expected to be a leading star at Schalke after joining the club from AC Milan in 2013, but he fell down the pecking order under Roberto Di Matteo after a string of poor performances.
He never scored in 17 domestic appearances this campaign, averaging a rating of 6.61 from WhoScored.com. The Ghanaian has proven wasteful on the ball—completing 77.5 per cent of his passes, per WhoScored—while he has also failed to put in shifts defensively.
Boateng was sent home from the 2014 World Cup for disciplinary reasons.
