Hellas Verona midfielder, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, has said he is communicating with his team on a decision to make his retirement from the Black Stars official.

The 29-year-old FIFA U-20 World Cup winner in 2010 has been a missing figure in the Black Stars for at least the last five years.

He said playing for the national team is not a priority for him at the moment and would still be proud should he end his international career immediately.

“The national team is not my goal at the moment, having played around 78 games”, Badu told Takoradi-based Spice FM.

“If I am no longer able to be summoned, I am still very proud of myself and I thank the nation.

“I speak with my entourage to decide whether or not to make the retirement of the national team official and I will communicate it at the appropriate time.”

In 2010, Badu was selected for his first Africa Cup of Nations as the Black Stars finished runners-up to Egypt.

He appeared in the 2012 and 2013 editions of the tournament, with the team twice recording fourth-placed finishes.

The former Udinese stars was a member of the Black Stars team that played in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil when he missed the previous edition because of injury.
