Kevin Prince Boateng Offers Free Kebabs To Hertha Berlin Fans After Signing New Deal

Kevin Prince Boateng Offers Free Kebabs To Hertha Berlin Fans After Signing New Deal

Boateng found a bizarre way to celebrate a new contract at the German club.

Kevin Prince Boateng has signed a new contract with German outfit Hertha Berlin and to celebrate, he offered 2,023 free kebabs to fans of the club. 

The midfielder found a bizarre way of announcing his new deal, in the announcement video, he was filmed in a kebab van making a promise to fans. 

Hertha Berlin released the video on Twitter with the caption that read: “Still hungry.” 

Boateng has partnered with the Hakiki kiosk, which is a popular food outlet in the Wedding district of Berlin, which is where the 35-year-old former Ghana international grew up. 

He will give 2,023 Hertha Berlin fans the chance to get a free kebab and to meet him in person. 

The meeting is due to take place the day before the club open their 22/23 campaign against Eintracht Frankfurt. 

Boateng returned to Germany in the summer of last year after a short spell in Italy playing for Monza

The energetic and sometimes fiery midfielder signed a 12 month deal upon his arrival. 

However, his time back in German football hasn’t been a success as he failed to register a single goal or assist in 21 appearances in the 21/22 campaign, despite his poor return on the pitch, he established himself to the loyal fan base off the pitch. 

Boateng did not feature in the first leg of a relegation play off against Hamburg, with the threat of relegation looming, Boateng returned in the second leg as his side cemented another season in the top flight after a 2-0 victory. 

The midfielder has played for a host of clubs around Europe, including the likes of AC Milan, Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund. He had two spells in the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur and Portsmouth. 

Boateng joined Spurs from Hertha Berlin in 2007 in a deal worth £5.4 million, he failed to impress as he didn't manage to score in 25 appearances. 

His time with Portsmouth was slightly better, as he managed to score five goals in 27 games for Pompey. He was involved in the club’s FA Cup final against Chelsea in 2010, Boateng had a penalty saved as Chelsea came out 1-0 winners.

With the new season fast approaching, Boateng will hope his fortunes on the pitch will change as he looks to help Hertha Berlin secure Bundesliga status once again.
