Former AC Milan star Kevin Prince Boateng has revealed that he purchased a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac, all in a day, as he lived like a ‘king’, something he regrets now.
“I bought three cars in one day when I was at Tottenham: a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac. To the youngsters, I tell them: “You cannot buy happiness”.
Family issues and trouble getting into Spurs’ squad, he explained, got to him, with the cars giving him some semblance of happiness at the time.
‘I didn’t play, I had family problems, I was out of the squad. I was looking for happiness in material things: a car makes you happy for a week. I bought three to be happy for three weeks.’
Quite the journeyman, Kevin-Prince Boateng’s travels across Europe have seen him play for a host of Europe’s top clubs including AC Milan, Dortmund and Barcelona.
He has also had stints at Las Palmas, Portsmouth and Schalke 04.
He’s won five trophies across his career including the League Cup at Tottenham and the La Liga title with Barcelona.
Boateng currently plays for Serie B club Monza.
