Hellas Verona midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang Badu has announced his retirement from international football after 12 years of service.

The 30-year-old wants to focus on his club career after 78 appearances for the Black Stars. Badu has been out of the Ghana national team for the past three years.

”Although it’s been a while I’ve been out of the national team, I’m here today to say the nation has been very excellent to me throughout my career with the national team,” he told Football Made In Ghana.

”On this day after talking to my family and loved ones, I think it’s time to officially retired from the national team.

”I’ve tried several times to win the AFCON for the nation after winning U20 AFCON and World Cup. We came close twice, but it’s a bit disappointing that we couldn’t win it. ”I, however, believe my colleagues who are now in the national team will do that for us in the coming years.”

Badu also featured as a youth international and he will be remembered for his winning goal which gave Ghana the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup trophy
