Short introduction

Prince Boateng is a German-Ghanaian football professional and half brother of Jerome Boateng. In his ongoing career, he was already active for numerous clubs in Germany, England, Italy and Spain. In addition to his remarkable athletic career, Boateng also made headlines away from the grass, which is why the image of the “scandal professional” stuck to him for a long time.

Early life

Kevin Prince Boateng grew up as part of a patchwork family in Berlin. In addition to his two brothers, he also has a little sister, who did not become known as a singer but as a singer. The brothers, however, have always been a committed force and were addicted to football. Since they all had great talent and trained daily, at least the two younger ones, Jerome and Kevin Prince, finally realized their dream. They became internationally successful professionals. Like Jerome, Kevin Prince started his career at Hertha in Berlin. After taking his first steps in professional football, however, he soon hit the headlines with escapades off the pitch and left the capital.

Career

Kevin Prince Boateng’s career can certainly be described as spectacular and varied. Successes were soon followed by setbacks and Boateng did not stay with any of the numerous clubs for too long. Nevertheless, he can look back on a whole range of titles and successes. Especially his time at AC Milan in Italy can be viewed positively. A championship title and the title in the national Supercup paint a clear picture. In addition to his career at club level, Boateng was also active in various national teams. At first he went through almost all youth teams of the DFB, before he decided to join the senior team for Ghana. This decision was initially described by the public and the press as incomprehensible. However, Boateng saw no realistic chance of getting missions in the German team. However, since he absolutely wanted to take part in a world championship, the Ghanaian team seemed to him the ideal way to make this dream come true. And he should be right: twice he managed to take part in the World Cup with Ghana. The first time in 2010 and then again in 2014. The participation was also relatively successful. Especially in 2010, when the team reached the quarter-finals with great leadership.

2010: World Cup quarter-finals
2011: Italian championship and Supercup with AC Milan
2018: DFB Cup with Eintracht Frankfurt
