German-born striker Kevin-Prince Boateng will on Friday work as a football analyst during the 2020 European Championship
The Italy-based player, who is on the verge of leaving Italian Serie B side Monza, has ventured into sport analysis by signing up with one the biggest television stations in Germany ARD.
The sports program Sportschau, of the public TV ARD, announced a collaboration with Boateng and with the Ghanaian star will be with other big hitters on the German football scene.
And the television announced the deal with the Ghanaian through an evocative video in which Boateng, bare-chested and with his countless tattoos on display, gets a new tattoo with the Sportschau logo.
Boateng will be joined by World Cup winner and Bayern legend Bastian Schweinsteiger, Olympic champion and national goalkeeper Almuth Schult and ex-professional footballer Thomas Broich.
The Ghana star looks to have cemented his job in his post playing career as he ventures into the new field where he is expected to provide insight for viewers across the German territory.
“I’ve been a professional footballer for fifteen years, I live football with every fiber of my body. I’ve played my way from the streets of Berlin to San Siro,” says Boateng in the ‘Sportschau’ trailer.
“I’ve seen just about everything, I got to play in the biggest leagues in Europe. I speak five languages and have trained with and with the best.
“I’m a brother, bad boy and leader – but always with a heart. I wear every stage of my career on my body . But the biggest one is waiting for me now.”
