K.P Boateng is the most complete player I played with- Hoeness

Published on: 06 February 2020

K.P Boateng's former teammate at Hertha Berlin, Sebastien Hoeness has described the Ghanaian as an 'overall package.' 

Sebastien, who is nephew to Bayern Muinich chief Uli, paid tribute to the Besiktas player saying he has never been on the pitch with a more talented player the Boateng.

"I've never been on the pitch with a more talented player. He was exceptional in the overall package and was already a crazy man at the time, extremely confident," he told Goal.

"He didn't care about anything that would have given him a bloody nose or two.

"But that was one of his great strengths. He knew what he could do and took responsibility."

Hoeness was a senior player at Hertha when he met the young player in Berlin, and reveals he use to give him advice on how to craft his career into a successful footballer.

"I was a few years older than him. I remember how I said to him once: 'Kevin, you are not about whether you will ever become a professional, play in front of many spectators and make a lot of money, it's all about whether you win titles or just play along'." Hoeness added.

"In the beginning there was actually a risk that he would not quite make it to the top. Then it clicked and he won titles. I'm happy about that."
