For the native of Berlin, there is nothing better than“ ending my career at Hertha ”. The former Ghana international confessed: "It was a mistake to leave Hertha. It is my home I should have stayed there to pay back what Hertha did for me. ”

“Go over (to Hertha BSC, editor's note), play for a year, then bring my brother in and play with him for a year or two. That would be a dream," he added.
