The tenacious midfielder has devised a creative approach to mark his commitment to staying in the German city for an additional year. In order to acknowledge the renewal of his contract with Hertha Berlin, Kevin-Prince Boateng is giving away 2,023 free kebabs to the Bundesliga team’s supporters. The midfielder has devised a creative approach to mark the fact that he will remain in the German city for a further 12 months. The former Ghanaian international was featured in a video making a mouthwatering promise to fans in a kebab van as part of the announcement that came along with his signing of new terms.
Alongside the tag line “still hungry”, Boateng has teamed up with the Hakiki kiosk – a popular food outlet in the Wedding district of Berlin where the 35-year-old grew up – to make his promise. Boateng is due to be on hand to meet and greet those that wish to take advantage of his generous gesture. The distribution of free kebabs is due to take place the day before Hertha open their 2022-23 campaign against Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Berlin native returned to his roots in the summer of 2021 after a short stint in Italy with Monza. The former Tottenham, AC Milan and Eintracht Frankfurt star penned a 12-month deal upon his arrival. He did not register a single goal or assist through 21 appearances in the 2021-22 campaign, but quickly endeared himself to a loyal fan base. Boateng sat out the first leg of a relegation play-off against Hamburg that threatened to drop Hertha out of the German top-flight, but returned to figure prominently in a 2-0 second-leg win that preserved their Bundesliga status.
