This time, the 28-year-old talks about how he almost ruined his life in the English Premier League by refusing to heed advice from Didier Drogba.
“Drogba tried to talk to me [during my wayward days], but I wasn’t open to good advice, not even that coming from Didier Drogba,” SportBild excerpted from the book.
“Kevin said ‘Focus on football. There’re 1000 coaches and 999 of them will not like you. I had to fight for my place when I came from France.’ But I was not ready to listen to him.”
Now engaged to Italian model Melissa Satta, Boateng spent three years in England following a transfer from Hertha Berlin to Tottenham Hotspur and subsequently to Portsmouth after a brief loan at Borussia Dortmund, a period during which he separated from former wife Jennifer.
“I sometimes drank too much and lost Jenny because I was out all the time, and also with other women.
“I never spent an evening at home. And when I was out, I went for it big time. On quite a few of those nights, I wasted £10,000.”
Boateng is currently reviving his career at Milan but still faces an indefinite suspension from Ghana national team following disciplinary issues at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
We wait to see him in the Black Stars soon.
