Former Hertha Berlin manager Dieter Hoeneß believe too many nonsense thwarted Kevin-Prince Boateng’s leadership qualities.

The 34-year old who is currently unattached after his contract with Serie B side AC Monza is on the verge of rejoining his former employers after 14-years of his departure ahead of next season German Bundesliga season.

He is expected to have his medicals on Wednesday ahead of a potential switch to the club.

However, Hoeneß, who introduced the Ghanaian forward back in 2005 at Hertha Berlin claims he used to be a leader but said too many nonsense in his head thwarted it.

“Kevin used to be a leader, but at that time he still had too many nonsense in his head, so the lead went in a different direction”

“He was the 'Leader of the Gang' of the youngsters. With his experience today, he would certainly have done a lot differently. But now he is very clear in his ideas, is only focused on football and very professional. That would be a top commitment for Hertha and the right step for me” he said.

He added the former Barcelona star would be a good addition for Hertha Berlin if he is completely fit.

“The boy can do everything on the ball, has outstanding technique, and never avoids a duel. If he is completely fit, he would be really good for Hertha. "

Kevin Prince Boateng has been working as pundit for German Television station ARD for Euro 2020 championship.
