Former Hertha Berlin trainer, Dieter Hoeneß, is enthused about the proposed return of Kevin-Prince Boateng to the team for the upcoming season.

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 the next German Bundesliga season.

He is expected to have his medicals on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, ahead of a potential switch to the club.

And according to Dieter Hoeneß who introduced the Ghanaian forward, he will be an asset for the side.

“Kevin has everything for a leading player. He was at many big clubs, has matured, and is absolutely sensational in terms of football. He would be an absolute asset to Hertha."

“Kevin used to be a leader, but at that time he still had too much 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 a pundit for German Television station ARD for Euro 2020 championship.
