Kevin Prince Boateng Joins Hertha Berlin

Former Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has rejoined his hometown club Hertha Berlin where he made his Bundesliga debut in 2006.

The attacking midfielder joins from Serie B club AC Monza and has signed a contract running until 2022.

Kevin-Prince Boateng knows Hertha BSC, the Bundesliga and Berlin. He won’t need long to settle in. Prince’s leadership qualities are a great addition to our team, both on and off the pitch. He has also proven his skills as a player at the highest level for several years. Overall, everything about this transfer is right,” said sporting director Fredi Bobic, who knows Boateng from their time together at Eintracht Frankfurt.

For the Berlin native, it’s a return to where his career as a professional footballer once began.

“It’s no secret that I’d always been eyeing a return to Hertha BSC. The fact that it’s finally worked out makes me very proud. I’m eager to get started, and to play in front of a sold-out Ostkurve at the Olympiastadion with the lads,” Boateng said.

The 34-year-old will wear the number 27 shirt for the ‘Old Lady’.

Italian champion, DFB-Pokal winner, Spanish champion

Boateng joined the Hertha BSC academy as a seven-year-old and moved up through the ranks of the club’s youth sides, before breaking into the first-team squad in 2005.

He made a combined 53 appearances for Hertha (five goals, nine assists) in the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and UEFA Cup, before joining Tottenham Hotspur in 2007.

Following a loan spell at Borussia Dortmund and a stint at Portsmouth, Boateng joined AC Milan, where he became an Italian champion in 2011, before joining Genoa.

In 2013, the midfielder returned to Germany, playing two seasons at FC Schalke 04.
