Portsmouth dismiss Boateng claims of poor medical care

Portsmouth have defended themselves after a withering blast from star player Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Boateng looks likely to leave Portsmouth after describing the medical care he has received at the club as "amateurish".

Portsmouth director of communications Gary Double said the club had organised an appointment with a specialist for Boateng, but the player chose to have treatment in Germany.

Double said: "We are unaware of Kevin's comments. He certainly has not been in touch with the club to air those views.

"However, Kevin was scanned as soon as we realised the gravity of the injury and an appointment was made with a top specialist who has successfully treated two former players for similar injuries.

"Instead, Kevin was given permission to fly to Germany to be treated.''
