This Thursday, the 47-year-old made his debut on the Qatar-based sports channel to talk about the round of 16 games.
Boateng will be joining beIN Sports’ staff of analysts and pundits for the tournament in Qatar, the network announced in October.
He was featured among a long number of former players and managers who had been lined up to cover the World Cup for beIN Sports.
Former Brazil star Kaka, World Cup champion Marcel Desailly of France, and former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger were also on the list.
However, several Ghanaians were troubled by Boateng’s inclusion, doubting his loyalty to the Black Stars, where he works as an assistant coach.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) responded by making it clear that Boateng will not be serving as a pundit during the World Cup.
Following Ghana’s elimination from the competition, the former Aston Villa U23 coach has begun his punditry duties with beIN Sports.
As I predicted before the start of Ghana's 2022 World Cup campaign, #BlackStars Assistant Coach George Boateng will be on BeIN Sports as a pundit once Dede Ayew and the lads crash out of #Qatar2022. George is on NOW with Lianne Sanderson previewing Netherlands vs Argentina. pic.twitter.com/YEPg59XVTn
