Former Brazilian international Alexander Pato has celebrated the profound personal transformation of former Ghanaian international footballer Kevin-Prince Boateng.
Boateng recently declared his embrace of Christianity and baptism, sharing this significant milestone on Instagram. In his post, Boateng referenced Revelation 3:20, marking a new spiritual chapter in his life.
“And It’s up to US to open the Door or not. JESUS is The way, The truth and The life.” This declaration signals a new spiritual chapter in Boateng’s life”
Reacting to his declaration on Instagram, Pato who was his teammate at AC Milan said; “The best way my friend! 🙏🏻♥️”
This spiritual journey follows Boateng’s retirement from professional football in August, concluding a nearly two-decade career.
In a video reflecting on his career, he highlighted the challenges he faced and emphasized the importance of hard work.
“You become a criminal or you play football, so I choose to play football,” Boateng said. “I was always special from the first moment, and I knew it. I was my biggest rival all the time. There’s no one else who can be my rival. Because no one is like me, no one thinks like me, no one has emotions like me. It’s just me and myself. I had to learn that as well; talent is nothing without hard work.”
Boateng, who started in Hertha Berlin’s youth team, went on to represent top European clubs and played for Ghana in two FIFA World Cups.
