I want to enjoy every day!

Kevin-Prince Boateng will retire at the end of the 2022/23 season

No matter what, Kevin-Prince Boateng’s will be mentioned somewhere.

From the bizarre to the unforgettable, Boateng’s name will be in those conversations.

It all started at Hertha for the 35-year-old, almost 20 years ago, and it will end will with the Old Lady of Berlin.

Over 18 seasons of a colourful career, Boateng has represented clubs across six countries, from his homeland of Germany, England, Italy, Spain, Turkey and even Brazil.

He was a bright prospect of Germany’s youth revolution in 2000s but ended up representing his father’s home country of Ghana at senior level.

He played in Ghana’s game against his native Germany at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, against his younger brother Jerome Boateng.

That was the first time that two brothers played on opposite teams at the World Cup.

His return to Hertha was his supposed to be his final bow, but he arrived at a club that was going through a rough period on and off the pitch.

I couldn’t retire after that.

Hertha survived relegation in the playoffs, beating Hamburg 2-0 at the Olympic Stadion, securing them a 2-1 aggregate win for them to stay in the Bundesliga last season.

They needed to grind deep the season before that as well, but things didn’t improve and Boateng didn’t want to remember his career that way.
