I've done a survay on German papers about Kevin 'Prince' Boateng. First thing is that they confirm the transfer to Spurs for 5 M (7.4 euro). Hertha BSC needed the money because they found some new players to strengten the squad. Boateng was more of substitute last two seasons, he played 21 matched each year and scored 4 goals in 42 matches. He's well known of his really great talent (only 20 yet) but he seems to be a sort of 'trick pony' with more eye for the public than for his fellow players.
He also is known of a bit of an 'attitude'. He was a model for (workmans)clothing. But he also has a reputation as 'boulevardguy' as well as 'Ghettoboy'. The first because of the attention he likes (German talent of the year 2006) and the second because he grew up in the neighbourhood 'Wedding' in his words: a Ghetto.
He also wares 13 tattoo's, and that is something in Germany!!!
It's seems that Martin Jol get's a new very talented 'project' that can succeed or fail!! Maybe we're in for a new kind of 'Gazza'. He also picked up a lot of yellow (one every three games).
Nevertheless everybody in Germany knows he's a real great talent, seen as one of three best in his generation out of all Europe (that's what they claim in Germany).
It's up to Martin to let the guy see what he really can do, as a teamplayer. His position in Germany? Attacking midfielder.
COYS and BMJ!!
