Schalke 04 manager Jens Keller has hailed the leadership qualities of Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Boateng, who was born in Berlin but switched his allegiance to Ghana in 2010, signed a four-year deal at the start of the season from AC Milan.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man has become an important piece for the side, helping them to fourth on the table.
Schalke manager Jens Keller is full of praise for his summer signing and labels him as real leader.
â€œThere are many players out there who think they are leaders, but address issues through the media. Kevin isnâ€™t like that, he addresses problems within the squad,â€ Keller said.
â€œIf you look at his body language at the pitch, the younger players can always look at him as an example.
â€œEven when things arenâ€™t going so well, he is always pushing on, he has always got his head up. Thatâ€™s why he such an important player for us.â€
