Kevin-Prince Boateng - Ghana

Football News

Kevin-Prince Boateng is another player who since leaving troubled times behind him in England, has been able to make a name for himself in Europe. 

The German-born Ghana international was signed by Tottenham Hotspur in 2007 from his first club, Hertha Berlin. 

The midfielder was 20 at the time and failed to make an impact at White Hart Lane after the manager who had bought him, Martin Jol, was sacked and replaced by Spaniard Juande Ramos.

The 26-year-old only made 14 league appearances in his two seasons at Spurs, and was loaned back to the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund. 

Portsmouth gave Boateng one more chance to show the Premier League just how good he was, when they took him from Tottenham at the start of the 2009/10 season. 

Although he was able to take Portsmouth to the FA Cup final that season, he couldn't prevent the club from being relegated. 

He was allowed to sign for AC Milan the following summer and spent three seasons in Italy before a return to Germany with Schalke in August. 

Ghana have one foot in the World Cup door after beating African rivals Egypt 6-1 in their play-off first leg match.
