KP Boateng Reveals Why He Failed To Perform At Tottenham Hotspurs

Ghana forward, Kevin Prince Boateng has revealed why he struggled to perform at Tottenham Hotspurs.

Boateng who is on loan at Barcelona from Sassuolo says when he first arrived in London, he did not pay attention to his diet and that affected his weight.

“Now I weigh 83 kilos," he said. "That was down to the party. At Tottenham, I did not play and I was always with the fans in the stands.

"In London, I was 20 years old. And you go partying, you're with friends and you eat badly.

“Now I have my cook and I am aware that eating well and being healthy lengthens the race.

"When you're young you think that every month the money is going to be there.

"If you do not play you do not care because you have money and friends tell you that you are a phenomenon.”

Boateng signed a four-year contract with Tottenham Hotspur in July 2007 for a reported £5.4 million from Hertha BSC.

The 31-year-old has featured once for Barcelona since joining in the winter transfer window.
