Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has posted a funny ‘kiddy’ picture of himself and younger brother Jerome.

The former AC Milan star has decided to play for Ghana while his younger brother opted to play for Germany at international level.

The Boatengs are born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother and stayed all their life in the European country.

The Ghana FA courted both brothers to play for the Black Stars before the last World Cup in South Africa.

Kevin, the eldest amongst the two, opted to play for Ghana while his younger sibling continued to play for Germany at senior level having played in their junior national teams.

Both players now play their club football in Germany with Kevin-Prince on the books of Schalke while Jerome is with giants Bayern Munich.

The brothers played against each other for their respective national teams at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and will be doing same – barring any unforeseen circumstances – at this year’s finals in Brazil.

    The two are half-brothers. Ja , there is a 3rd. brother (George), who is the elderst of the three. George and Kevin have the same mother, and Jerome the youngest has a different mother. The Father is alive and kicking and still lives in Berlin, Germany!They have a younger sister (mother-Jeromes').There is a book about them (but written in German).I think this info is enough!

    I understand there is a third boy,does he share the same mother with one of them or from a different mum?What about their father,is he alive and he leaving in Ghana?Ghanaian journalists are not helping,they can't tell us more about this family.Football fans like me will like to know more bcos I am their fan.
