Prince felt like a criminal

Prince felt like a criminal

Dundee United midfielder Prince Buaben said he felt like a criminal after being refused entry in Germany.

The Ghanaian was turned away at Munich Airport for failure to produce a visa as he and his colleagues were en route to their pre-season Austrian training camp.

He was eventually sent back home but not before he was made to feel nothing more than a common law thief.

"When I was stopped the police said that it wasn't a criminal offence and told me not to worry," Buaben told The Courier. "But the place they put me in wasn't the best and made me feel like I had committed a crime.

"It was a little room with a hard bench to sleep on and they didn't give me any food or drink," he continued. "It wasn't a cell but it certainly felt like it. I only got some food when the club doctor brought some along for me.

"They kept me there for two hours and then moved me to the departure lounge, where I had to sleep on the seats for six hours before my flight home."

Happily the 22-year-old was eventually allowed to return and rejoin his team-mates in the early hours of Thursday morning, although he was soon being subjected to plenty of light-hearted dressing room banter.

"But I'm not having Danny Swanson claiming that I was screaming on the original flight over when we were coming into land and the turbulence hit our plane," he added.

"The only thing he's said that was true was that he and David Goodwillie were holding hands."
