Jerome Boateng hits back at brother Kevin over pre-World Cup attacks on Germany

Kevin Prince Boateng and Jerome Agyenim Boateng greet before their World Cup clash in Brazil

Germany World Cup winner Jerome Boateng has hit out at his own brother Kevin-Prince of Ghana for questioning their title credentials before their tournament in Brazil.

The flamboyant ex-Tottenham Hotspur and AC Milan star Kevin criticised the Germans before the World Cup saying Joachim Low’s squad lacks “characters and leaders” when the going gets tough.

Many tipped Germany to top the group, but Kevin said Germany lack the characters to make the difference.

“You need characters when you go into a tournament with so much pressure. I don’t see anyone in the Germany team who could handle this and might be able to carry the team along," Kevin said before the World Cup.

“Whenever things matter, they don’t make it,” he added.

The Germans defied Kevin and went on to win the World Cup in emphatic fashion by brushing hosts Brazil aside before defeating Argentina 1-0 in the final.

Now his brother Jerome has taken to Twitter to hit out at Kevin who claimed that the Germans lack the 'characters' to help them win the title.

"Characters? Absent characters? World Champion!," Jerome tweeted in the German language in the wake of their clinching of the World Cup in direct reference to Kevin's criticism before the tournament in Brazil.

Kevin opted to play for Ghana, the country of his father, in 2009 and was up against his half-brother and Germany right-back Jérôme Boateng at the World Cup in the match which ended 2-2.

German-born Boateng, the brother of Germany international Jerome, opted to play for Ghana only months before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but featured in every game and helped the Black Stars to the quarter-finals where they were controversially eliminated by Uruguay.

After a three-year hiatus, Kevin  returned to the Ghana team ahead of the 2014 World Cup but his campaign ended in disgrace as he was kicked out from the Black Stars squad for disciplinary problems.

Boateng ultimately decided to switch allegiances when he was excluded from the Germany under-21 squad in the summer of 2009 on disciplinary grounds.

His exclusion game only days before the team, which included Mesut Ozil, Manuel Neuer, Sami Khedira and Mats Hummels, travelled to Sweden to win the European Championships.

    @ jeff, no wander you guys are xenophobic.... You're just espousing your xenophobic tendencies. And did i hear u say u r not racists? And that u have equal races? God save us..... What else can u do? You have no option but to sell ur countries in southern Africa to the whites. Fact is, u can't do without the whites continues intervention in ur internal affairs. When did aparthait end in southern Africa? u were in bondage and slavery and you're still. If Jeff, you're not so myopic minded how can u condone an affront on our dignity like that, simply because u r from the south. We in Ghana are matured and reason above such gullibility. Jeff, grow up ok......

    Samedge and Gada)* Who the **** to u two think are for talking ill about South Africa.which ghanian employs south africans in SA?? I see u are running mad with that ghanian food of yours. now listen,be happy tht atleast ghanians have small jobs in SA which they failed to find in your land ok. 2,no SA or any southern region national would want to stay in ghana because that country is far behind to match our good standard.we have equal races in our region because we are not racist like you and that is why u not developed because u are too segregative. 3.stop insulting zambia because u know nothing about it and its the most peacefull place in africa and u can google that if u want. 4.well u call us Apes? Can u honestle compare yourselves with zambians or southafricans?all ghanians i have seen are argly and their women are all shapeless and u only recognise them when they lough because they are very invisible such that we run away when we see them. Most ghanians in SA are thieves and we reject them when they are applying online jobs. As i conclude,i therefore say that no SA,Zambian Or any southern region national would want to stay in your country BIG NO,for what and to do what there? Apreciate because your people are maids here,cleaners and brewers and they earn a sweet living out of it. South Africans are hardworking and you wil not find them working as maids like that samedge fool is insunuating. we own big companies and most of the PSL clubs are owned by Pure SA individuals. Dont just open your mouth any how because it shows how irriterate u are. Viva SA viva zambia viva malawi viva ola Angola viva ola mozambique Viva great zimbabwe Viva Botswana viva madagascar viva Lesotho viva swaziland VIVA THE GREAT SOUTHERN REGION. A REGION WHERE ALL REGIONS IN AFRICA WANT TO COME AND STAY AND PRETEND TO BE AMONG US RESPECT

    @Jeff,When you are in your house and someone attacks you,what do you do?.You will defend yourself of course.We Ghanaians are peaceful as you already know.Mumbi started attacking us after we had eliminated Zambia from the world cup,out of pain.Go back and read all his comments.Now,you also could have made your comments devoid of insults,to show maturity.In any case,why will you attack other innocent Ghanaians in your country,just because you are exchanging words with Ghanaians on their site?.I did not insult you back,despite your insult us.

    Samedge,shango and Banger; You are all stupid idiotic imbecile,, you insult zambia,then u have insulted the entire southern region you fools.We have alot of west africans in south africa seeking assylums and yet you are there attacking someone who is telling u the truth? For your own information,we wil start misstreating ghanians here in cape town because u guys dont appreciate.zambia is more developed than that ghana shumble and atleat they have clean water and proper economics volumes compared to that shumble ghana ok. Southern region is the most united and peaceful region worldwide we dont need a passport to go to any country in our region.Thats why SA's are marrying zambians,zim-botswana and throughout our sweet region. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM ATTACKING ZAMBIA BECAUSE WE WIL DEPORTED YOUR ASSYLATED GHANIANS IN OUR COUNTRY AND PLEASE TAKE THIS AS AN OFFICIAL WARNING. VIVA SOUTHERN REGION
