World Cup Winner Insists Ghana’s Kevin Prince Boateng Could Have Been Among the Top Five Players in the World

- Sami Khedira and the Ghana international spent time together in the early years of their careers at the German youth national teams
- Kevin-Prince Boateng switched nationalities to represent the country of his father in 2009 and was part of the 2010 World Cup team
Former Germany international, Sami Khedira is surprised Kevin-Prince Boateng could not reach his full potential after showing enormous talent during their formative days.
Sami Khedira, a World Cup winner in 2014, started his career with the Hertha Berlin star at the same time and were both in the Germany youth national teams.
"I always said that this guy would be in the top five in the world. We were 15 at the time and he was better than everyone else. He could play in any position: whether as a striker, Sixers or even as a goalkeeper," he said as quoted by Fussball.news
"He was strong in finishing, could score goals with his head and was technically adept, but it's about mentality," added Khedira.
