KP Boateng: Midfielder offered Bundesliga return by Frankfurt

After terminating his contract with Spanish side Las Palmas, Kevin-Prince Boateng is being offered the chance to make a sensational return to the Bundesliga.

Boateng parted ways with Las Palmas Wednesday morning due to “irreversible personal reasons” – a decision which sources say is partly influenced by his desire to get closer to his family.

And Eintracht Frankfurt manager Niko Kovač is enthusiastic and confident in landing the 30-year-old Ghana international.

“He [Boateng] is certainly a subject of interest for us. We have lost someone like Marco Fabian (to spine injury). It is clear that we are looking at the [transfer] market [but] we cannot confirm anything.

“I can only confirm that we have been dealing with the name Kevin-Prince Boateng and also deal with it,” Kovač said.

Reacting to concerns about Boateng’s reputation, the 45-year-old former Croatia midfielder said: “Unfortunately, too many people were judging about people they do not know.”

“I know Kevin, we were neighbors in the cabin (at Hertha) I know what qualities he has for a guy.” One had only to look at where he had played. And “ten goals in Spain have to be done”.

In short: “I do not need to say anything about his footballing abilities, he does not have a routine at his age, and I think that this player would help any team in the Bundesliga – including Eintracht Frankfurt.”

Knee problems

“There are always lots of things being carried out,” Kovač mentioned. “In the case of Makoto Hasebe, it was the first time he had a bad knee, and now he’s playing his fifth year, so it’s always relative. And Kevin made 28 games last year, so he’s a player who has his 25 to 30 games in the season and will be able.”

Kevin-Prince Boateng’s career has seen him feature in the top leagues in Europe like Germany (Hertha BSC where he started from), England, Italy and until recently, Spain.
