Former Ghanaian and AC Milan star footballer, Kevin Prince Boateng, has revealed how he couldn’t cope with the fame of being a rich professional footballer and ended up wasting his money on cars, partying at nightclubs and fake friends.
Speaking about this past life in an interview with Marca, the footballer said:
“For me it was impossible. From one day to another you have so much money you can buy everything. In two years I spent all my money on cars, watches, boots, nightclubs, restaurants and friends who really were not.
For a guy like me, who grew up in a poor neighbourhood and had no money, it was dangerous. In life it is important to recognise the bad. Thanks to the mistakes, I am what I am.
I was a very impulsive person and maybe I’m smarter now.”
