Kevin-Prince Boateng: Hertha Berlin Midfielder Extends Stay With New Deal

Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has signed a contract extension with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin.

The 35-year-old, who has 15 Ghana caps, was one of the club’s best midfielders last season and helped the team to escape relegation.

“It wasn’t just in the relegation that we saw the importance of Prince for our team. He is our leading player, goes ahead, and pulls everyone along. Exactly these qualities are what we need in the coming season as well,” Hertha Berlin’s portal quoted the club sports managing director, Fredi Bobic.

On his part the Boateng said: “I’ve always said what special importance this club has for me – and showed it on and off the pitch. I feel good.”

The Berlin-born Ghana international started his career at Hertha after graduating from the youth academy to the senior team in 2005.

He left the club in 2007and joined English Premier League side Tottenham but played only 14 times in two years.

He had brief loan spell at Borussia Dortmund and a move back to England to play for Portsmouth before he finally settled in Milan in 2010.

Boateng then made a move to Genoa in 2010 before a switch to AC Milan, with whom he emerged as Serie A’s champions in 2011.

The former German junior international returned to the Bundesliga and played for Schalke 04 between 2013 and 2015.

Boateng had brought a premature end to his playing days with Ghana in November 2011 when he retired, claiming his body could not cope with club and international football.

He made himself available again for Black Stars in January and its reported that he is to meet Coach Otto Addo who is based in Germany over possible talks of making a return to the team for the AFCON qualifiers and World Cup.
