Kevin-Prince Boateng has expressed his regrets over some of the mistakes he committed which hampered his spell at Tottenham.
The Ghana international after more than ten years following his unsuccessful career at Tottenham has opened up on some of the terrible mistakes, he made which had a toll on him in his early days in England.
In an interview , Boateng said he didn’t take his career seriously enough as a young player, particularly while he was at Spurs.
“I’ll go back and say: I didn’t treat football as a job. I was an idiot. I had talent, but I trained the bare minimum, an hour on the field. I was the last to arrive and the first to leave. I’ll be out with friends. I had money, I lived like a king. I’ve never been to the gym. That changes your later career,”he said.
Boateng also explained that he wasted his time and money on extravagant lifestyle and even bought three cars in a day but they didn’t give him the happiness he was looking for during his days at Tottenham.
